This book looks attractive enough, and at first glance it captivates, but with closer examination a web of deception appears. Rather than pictured as the reflection and express image of God, Jesus is painted with a brush that makes Him appear radical and wild, a disturbing and contrary counterfeit to the God-man who laid down His life and shed His precious blood for our sins. The author refers to the "desert fathers"( a mystical band of monastic monks), and contemplative spirituality (New Age panantheism), that has it's roots in the far east. The author frequently quotes several known practitioners of this self centered worldview. It is dangerous to undiscerning Christians especially younger adults and teens who may not be grounded in the truth of the gospel.
