did not like it

Not entirely sure there's any purpose for having written this book. There's nothing new or exciting here. Eldredge simply couches what we might call "traditional" Christianity into a new form, that of a story. But anyone who has read the Bible knows that God's relationship with us is indeed a story and cannot be understood outside of that.

Essentially all Eldredge does is try to make the same old Christianity seem "cool" by mentioning a bunch of fairly contemporary movies, movies that were more contemporary at the time of writing (like The Matrix). If we want to use movies to talk about Christianity, there are better books to read, like The Gospel Reloaded.
