When you’re 48 years old and been a Christian for over 30 years you think you’re pretty set on how you view Christ and your faith. Boyd’s book not only challenged some of my misconceptions about God, he blew them out of the water! (In a really good way!) My faith in Christ feels more solid and freeing than ever! I️ truly consider Boyd to be one of the most profound teaching Theologians of our century. Thank you Greg for all your time and research you have clearly invested in this book over the last 10 years! To Christ be the glory!

I read Greg Boyd's The Crucifiction of the Warrior God and I thoroughly enjoyed it. As long as it was, I didn't want it to end. In this book I found a re-iteration of the main themes from that title; and while I couldn't shake the feeling throughout that I had read this book before (I actually checked my library several times), I still enjoyed it.
It was also cool to hear the words in the author's own voice. One thing I didn't like though was that it felt rushed. I'm sure it's just the way he reads but I couldn't help feeling like he was speed-reading. It was not bad enough to be unintelligible but it did take away from the potency of the material I feel.
Also the practical aspects of his position, which is another reason I picked this book, was relegated to a short section at the end. Kind of expected more, but it make sense where the majority of the book is a lead up to it for someone completely unfamiliar with the concepts.
That said, it was a great book with a solid performance and sound concepts!
