As brilliant, fun and insightful as his first ‘Bad Christian’ book, this book is powerful because it is real and digs past the obvious gloss of beinga Christian and going to church. It begs us to face up to the reality of who and what we are at heart and mind. It asks us to question what we should be doing as real Christians with all our truth ... and doubts ... hanging out there for everyone to see. In a way he shows that being a bad Christian, with all our idiosyncrasies and less than stellar performances of love and compassion, are where real faith is.
Where we really encounter and experience God; where we wrestle with angels and reflect God’s glory. God does not want perfect people he wants real people, people who live fully with compassion, mercy, love and acceptance. A wonderful manifesto and a book so many need to read and pass around.
