Zahnd is working toward a radical (getting-to-the-root) Christ-centered biblical hermeneutic. I was soaking up every word of this beautifully written, entirely accessible, utterly practical theology book that combines rich faith with practical living.
This really is a book of "Very Good News" and it points toward a sea-change that's happening among Christian evangelical preachers these days. I won't give away too much, but by the time you get to the second chapter ("Closing the Book on Vengeance"), be prepared to read slowly. I've dog-eared my copy at page 30 (once you read it, you'll find out why).
But Chapter 7 is my favorite. Honestly, if all you did was buy this book and read that chapter, you'd have your money's worth. I have honestly never read anything that so clearly and simply explained the right way to approach Revelation before. It's amazing. Really, amazing.
I'm excited there are books like this in the world. I plan to get a couple of copies just to share around with friends.
I received a free copy of this book as part of the Blogging for Books program in exchange for my honest review here.
