Out Of The Night: The Spiritual Journey of Vietnam Vets
The print is easy to read tho not well edited. The former congressman formed a group of educated and wealthy friends, after suffering a major turning point in his life, who agreed to meet for lunch every other Monday to discuss the Bible. Twenty years is a long time yet these friends continue to cherish their time together with the Bible as the main subject during their lunch hour.
The book appears to be a tribute to these friends and insights into their varied belief in God, the Bible, and faith in general.
There is nothing new in their debates but I have a great deal of respect for their bi-monthly priority and dedication to Christian principles.
Questioning the Bible, trying to make sense out of the mystery of life, reaching for a deeper understanding of what faith means - this is universal. Modern day life is filled with uncertainty and groups of friends from all walks of life can benefit from this lunch club concept of helpful discourse.
The book is not political or preachy at all. Obviously John Kasich feels people can benefit from lessons learned as they journey along with him and his "Bible Guys" as he refers to his friends! A nice book.
However, what strikes me more than the theology is the group's civility to one another when perhaps they don't agree about sticky issues in that most personal area of life: one's relationship with God. Civility is so sorely missing in our society, and when right- and left-wing Christians savage each other, all in Jesus's name, it's pretty discouraging to the rest of us. The members of this group don't always agree with one another on every point of discussion, but they accept their disagreements and continue to treat one another with respect. They see past doctrinal differences to the men behind them.
In a time when, "I don't agree with you" has become, "You're a *&^^&$_(@*%* idiot," this book reminds us what caring for one another is supposed to be about. While I don't agree with every theological interpretation the group comes to, I bet if I told them that, they'd listen and continue to allow me to state my opinions. I commend their attitude and recommend this book.
