Gina Denny This sounds kinda interesting. Can I ask why only three stars?

I will elaborate more when I sit down to write the review, but essentially, it started off great and kind of went downhill. The first several chapters were excellent, very thought-provoking and generated a lot of good discussion (I did this with my small group), but about halfway through the book, a lot of his discussion seemed to be very surface level. There were certain chapters where he seemed very legalistic and seemed to allow no room for grace.
