5.0 out of 5 stars Pastoral & Scholarly - A tremendous resource, October 14, 2013
“I love this book and will use it in the pulpit and classroom alike, along with my own journey with Christ. It isn’t often that scholarship, relevance, relevance, humor, and pastoral warmth converge in the same book, but thanks to the authors’ careful treatment and shepherding instincts, they have done so in Rooted. It was difficult to put the book down because Ray and Josh were able to take the reader back to the conflicts and passions that drove the writing of this magnificent Creed, while capturing the heart of the gospel: “The Christian story is ultimately hopeful.” It makes this ancient document very ‘human,’ and for this, I am in their debt.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, November 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This may be Buechner's best work - It reaches deeply into the heart and speaks to the inner longing that all share. His story of Sea World is epic and the last chapter is among the most beautiful I've ever read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Anne's Downfall, May 6, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I loved Anne's books, Traveling Mercies and Plan B - she spoke of faith in the most refreshing of ways and injected her own socio-political leanings and life in a healthy and relevant way. But Grace (Eventually) is a disappointment because here she presses a no-holds agenda as she uses her 'pulpit' to beat her political and religious prejudices into people.

Her angst demolished any sense of the Grace she apparently attempted to address. And unless she gets back into the groove she was in before, this will mark her downfall for speaking things spiritual, Christian or otherwise. She is a great, great author - but if she can't speak handle political differences within the same faith, then she is as guilty as those she condemns.
