saving paradise

In between my reading for school, I've started reading the book, Saving Paradise by Rita Nakashima Brock and Rebecca Ann Parker. From what I have read so far, the authors wonder whether the Christian obsession with the crucifixion may have diverted our attention from restoring paradise. That'll get a lot of people's attention! The book is thick, seriously it's a large book! But it has been an awesome read so far. The authors are brilliant, developing thoughtful and thought-provoking arguments while still being an approachable read. It's fairly easy reading for a theology text. Pick it up. I've already been reading out of it to a few friends. I'm sure it's going to take me a while to get through it, but it's worth it. Visit their pretty sweet website to read some of the book.
