My book FINALLY arrived last week (more than a month late), and it was hard to put it down - I finished it in record time! I was left with the "warm fuzzies" after reading it through, with a feeling that maybe, just maybe, we can all see past our differences as Christians, bridge a few gaps and grow together toward God.
I had my knuckles rapped in a few places - a couple of in-grown beliefs were named, exposed, and seen to be perhaps not so correct after all, leaving me cringing and smiling ruefully. I learnt a lot about other perspectives too. There are aspects of the different facets of Christianity that I knew nothing about - until now.
I've recently been through a very dark place spiritually, with seemingly no hope at the end of the tunnel. Reading this book has brought a spark of hope, the feeling that things CAN get better, and an urge to strive toward that. There's a tingling of spring now in my soul, and it has nothing to do with Chapter 16 (Why I Am Green). :)
I've been recommending this book left, right and centre to as many people as will stand still long enough to listen (and a few who won't - I recently used part of it for a devotional time where I had a captive audience...). I suspect my copy is going to end up well-worn. It will take a few more passes for everything to really sink in.
Looking forward to hearing what others have to say. To the next chapter and beyond!
