Our church has a bookstore. I like church. I like bookstores. I like supporting both. So I had a chance to read a book, write a bit about the book, and then return the book for someone else to love. Which worked great. Except that I bought the book in the end. But they have more! Which I guess works great for them, too, so it’s a win-win.
All that to say, a review of Paradoxology: Why Christianity Was Never Meant to be Simple by Krish Kandiah is now at From the Ground Up, the bookstore blog. The book works through thirteen complex mysteries of God’s nature using examples from the Old and New Testaments of people who confronted seemingly incompatible sides of God in their relationship with Him. Kandiah’s writing is direct and insightful, and the book is refreshingly approachable. If we challenge the murky and challenging areas of belief directly, he argues, there is evidence to suggest the development of a more robust faith.
Full details about the book’s contents and thoughts on Kandiah’s approach are in the review. Check it out!
