I felt as if the book took on a rambling tone where there are more personal observations than Biblical Based teachings. In addition to this, I found that I didn’t really enjoy his writing style. I understand he was attempting to connect with a younger reader, but I didn’t like the overly conversational tone. I also felt as if the author was negative toward the Conservative Christian Republican population in general and felt this book gave him the opportunity to distance himself from Conservatives and, in reality, bash Republicans and Fox News. He clearly wants to be read as an unashamedly Liberal Christian who likes to drink and smoke pipes, as he mentions during a few of the stories he tells about his past. He wants to seem worldly throughout the work. I don’t know if that is to appeal to a broader range of readers, but it was definitely off-putting for me.
I would not recommend this book to any of my friends and family. This will definitely not be a book I find myself reading again in the future as I do with so many of my other favorite books.
