At first, like a previous reviewer, I found this construct to be a bit contrived. However, it becomes an excellent way to engage in a conversation with Lose about Christian theology.
I taught a course using Making Sense of Scripture, and, am now teaching this book.
We are enjoying the book immensely, and find Lose's insights to be provocative and illuminating.
This tends to be aimed at Lutherans - surely mainline Christians. I have recommended these "Making Sense" books to colleagues to consider for adult classes.
There are some wonderful insights in what David has to say.
HOWEVER, I find this fairly simple format an excellent way to present this material to one who may not have that level of formal education. It is conversational and works especially well as a small group, class, or discussion.
Further, David Lose is widely known for his clear, honest, and sensitive way of presenting deep spiritual truths.
So this just might be the right book for you or your group. I recommend it.
Since studying this book, we have studied another and will being Lose's Making Sense of Scripture next week.
Oh, another cool thing: 7 of the 15 people signed for this course, bought it for their Kindle! Yea, Kindle!
I have used the Christian Faith book as one book for my candidates for baptism (the other was Lose's book on Making Sense of Scripture) for two years with my catechumenate enrollees (new member class) that runs from September through Easter. Both the candidates and their sponsors have enjoyed the book and have found that Dr. Lose's style very accessible. I can offer highlights during our sessions but rarely do they have many questions.
I highly recommend this as a book for new members in giving them a thoughtful yet accessible introduction to Christianity.
