This book was written with the idea of taking a nonconfrontational approach to challenge what I perceive as a dogmatic status quo in many churches today. My wish is that my efforts can serve as a launch pad for a discussion that will question why we do the things we do and move us towards a Christ-centric community of faith.
Allegorical language is used to bring out the point that some traditions we hold dear have become, at best, counterproductive and accomplish nothing in reaching out to a lost and dying world.
This book tries to show God's plan and desire for humanity in contrast to what we continually do in order to get back into the garden. The essence of the text is God's love towards us, and that is what we need to reflect to the world.
