really liked it
bookshelves: christianity
Read from June 25 to July 11, 2012

The chapter called "Who really lives that way," was most encouraging. Chan interweaves the high demands of God for our total submission with the creativity of God whose life never looks exactly the same in any two people. "We have a...Creator, not a Duplicator." Without backing down on the call to abandon yourself to God's overwhelming love, Chan avoids the common "do it like me" mentality.

Good read.
