    Brown color of type ink very difficult to read
    February 1, 2014

    While I am (trying) to enjoy my book, I wanted to leave a review for those who may have vision problems. I am able to read most books with reasonable sized type. And while the type size on this book is acceptable (any smaller might be difficult), the brown ink color is VERY difficult for me to read. They tried so hard to make it appear to be a journal, with hand-written notes, doodles, maps, etc., it is all done in a rather light brown color of ink, INCLUDING the type. Dark brown ink may have worked, but this light brown ink is almost impossible for me to read (really a problem since it is a required text for my class). I would probably give the book itself 5 stars if I could ever get through it without straining my eyes any further.

    Embraces questions without abandoning faith

    This book is a well-written, imaginative exploration of who Jesus was. It is written from the perspective of a student who has encountered the skeptical side of biblical criticism and is eager to find out whether the faith he had as a child was real. There are some poignant moments of realization in this book, where Fisk, through his character, sees that not all questions need to be answered in order for faith to endure. The difficult questions are not shied away from, and result is a book that allows for some things to be unanswered as we wrestle with God in our faith.
