Jesus was particularly skilled in asking revolutionary questions that got people thinking and living differently. And it's when we wrestle with the hard questions and reject spoon-fed answers in place of hard-won truth that growth happens. Healing happens. Redemption happens.

Interesting, but flawed
The book is not about church, but about the possibilities and difficulties of connections people make through Facebook. The author tries to take a positive view of the possibilities and give people ways to deal with the difficulties. I appreciated his approach. I felt that some of his analogies, including the first one about the Millennial Bridge and how people became synchronized in their walk across it, to be just a bit awkward.
Similarly the reader pronounces several words incorrectly in that section - words like "Thames" and "prevalent" - which I found distracting.
The book is worth listening to. I enjoyed the attempt to appreciate Facebook and social media and to redeem them from the way they usually get used. It's easy to criticize the shallow ways we use these sites, but Church of Facebook is holding out hope we can go deeper.
