Chance “…was making a living giving talks about living a good life based on charity and compassion, and that he didn’t feel a bit guilty talking about Jesus because Christ was not the same man the demagogues made Him out to be. Christ was cool, and He didn’t expect humans to be perfect, and if He himself was perfect, well, look at what that did for Him. Had to take one for the team, give himself up, draw a charge so that mankind could continue making its sinful way toward eventually extinguishing itself.”
The book is so much more than what’s on the surface. As a born-and-bred Kentuckian, I liked the descriptions of Kentucky life and insights into the various subcultures. I grew up in the “boondocks” and found many rural descriptions right on target. Another facet was sports. In Kentucky, we sometimes tend to lift human (and fallible) coaches to Jesus-like heights.
For me though, I miss the old Chance and with the exception of new Chance and his former principal, I think so do most of the other characters in the book.
Anyone who loves hearing testimony of the transformative nature of faith in Christ will love this book. It’s is never preachy and certainly never too proud. A part of me wishes the message resounded louder in my heart, but looks like I’m stickin with Old Chance on this one.
