Review

"Prepare to see God in new ways."  SHANE HIPPS. Teaching Pastor at Mars Hill Bible Church.  shanehipps.com  

"Jeff Cook offers an honest voice in the midst of too many saying the same thing with subtle, monotonous, meaningless differences ... There's more in this little book than its length indicates. Digest this book."  SCOT McKNIGHT. Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies at North Park University.

"A creatively written and historically grounded portrait ... Everything New presents Jesus in beautiful and compelling ways."  PRESTON SPRINKLE.

I was pleasantly surprised with Cook's transparency, honesty and overall flow of thought and storytelling found in this book. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has followed the ongoing conversations about the new atheism, the topic of hell, or the emergent movement in the Protestant church. You will find some really good insight here and a Jesus-centered, thought-provoking, real-life-level exploration of the baseline presuppositions and assumptions that many of us are anchored in.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A. Adamson on August 10, 2013
Format: Paperback
This book takes a number of approaches to the problem of God-belief in a culture that has made many things about it intellectually and emotionally unsatisfying. I find that the greatest strength here is stepping away from the old standbys of traditional apologetics - arguments that prioritize biblical literalism, disparage the morality of the nonreligious, or try to systematically develop an intellectual framework that carefully sidesteps or weasels around legitimate conflicts within contemporary Christian theology. This may have been effective at one time, but I find more and more that recent work in apologetics invests more in shoring up an increasingly irrelevant religious culture than in developing a compelling case for Christ's teachings.

Cook avoids this trap by tackling the issues that matter directly - how can we believe in a good God in an evil-filled world? How can we find relevance in ancient biblical writings that were authored far before developments in astrophysics and biochemistry started to offer compelling explanations for things like the fate of the universe, or the chemical workings of our motivations and actions?

This book doesn't try to discredit those advancements, or gloss over difficult issues - it makes them the crux of the argument, and offers some novel perspectives that, in my opinion, make it evident exactly how limited the apologetics of the last few decades have really been.

I find Cook's case for why the story of Christ is fundamentally different from all other religious traditions to be the single most important part of this book. The God of Christ is one that takes the symbols of our deepest pain, struggle, and fear and turns them into images of hope and peace, and that is, as he says, "a God worth believing in".

Jeff Cook does a great job taking us through his journey of God belief. One of those rare books that is as entertaining as it is thought provoking, and it is plenty of both of those. He takes the God belief "glasses" that have been distorted for so long, and makes it desirable to look at the world through those glasses once again. Great book.
