Grrrrr. This book was a fun concept but ended up being really unsatisfying and frustrating for me in terms of the prose and plot.

One of the strangest books I've ever read. I highly recommend it, especially for preachers and evangelical Christians. It's sort of making me question things I've believed (and preached) but not for the reasons I would have ever thought I would. That's oblique, isn't it? Well, so is this book. Very postmodern. And did I mention strange? I couldn't put it down.

This book alternates between the profoundly challenging and the annoying and stupid in its comments and critiques of the modern evangelical church (the Contemporary Christian Culture Conspiracy).

A withering attack via a humorous Pomo approach, yet done in playful amusing way. a liberal xian will perhaps find this a real treat , at lea ...more

this book is fiction about the scrallings of a seemingly crazy pastor who is trying to find his way through contemporary christian culture and create a revolution...and then he's 'let go' to take time for himself. this book is for anyone who has lived inside and bubble and had the courage to finally get out!

I can't imagine reading this book without having read the introduction, I would have been so confused. All I can say is I couldn't put the book down once I started reading it.
