For any Christian that battles with themselves or others owe it to themselves to read this book. This is a deep book that gives you no choice but to observe yourself. Great book. Thank you Mr. Rollins!

I devoured this book quickly. I listened to it on Audible while driving, so I’m not sure stopping it after each chapter made sense for me. After finishing it, I immediately ordered two copies- one for me and one for someone for whom I care deeply. I will now read it a chapter at a time to consider what each has to offer.
There are many reasons to read a book like this. I am a person of the Christian faith and read this in hopes it would challenge, deepen, and take my faith to more meaningful places. It did. Rollins plays with stories we have heard, even Biblical stories, and adapts some of them in ways which help us see some deeper truths we may not have considered before.
I feel that for the stories to have the most effect on the reader, he/she will need to allow the story to affect them. At least that’s how it was for me. I read hoping to consider something new, and most of the time I was not let down.
So read, reflect, ponder, and most importantly ACT on what you read.
Peter Rollins has tapped into the mystical genre of parable to articulate 33 incredibly nuanced and relatable tenets of faith.
From theodicy, heresy and infidelity to love, hope and sacrifice, Rollins leads the listener to unique alternate worlds where one can entertain hypotheticals that have real world implications.
These parables will be so important for so many.
