Hard-hitting rationale for all Christians
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would recommend this audio book for any Christian who wonders about the struggle with faith. Seem simple enough to accept the promise for salvation, but author Phyllis Tickle slaps us with the realization that our faith has changed over time.
What did you like best about this story?
I love the parallel analysis of society vs faith; wait, did she say that faith is a social construct? What??
Which character – as performed by Pam Ward – was your favorite?
Ms Ward does a decent job of reading the book in a consistent way, but occasional voice inflections seemed a tad mocking. Maybe it's just me, but I sensed incredulity laced into the author's revelation that indeed society affects how we feel about the church.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
There were a few "oh-my-God" moments - revelations about the confluence of society and church, technology and faith. I'll be okay with some therapy.
Any additional comments?
A highly recommended read for any Christian who strives for a clearer understanding of our place in society. A whole lot of us came to get this book after our pastor read it.
