Another reviewer compared this book to the "Chicken Soup" books, which I think is apt. Chicken Soup for the Religiously Multicultural. After four years of intensive study of the Christian faith, one might think that the "senior" EfM members would be ready for some demanding, theological challenges. In the old "red books," that is exactly what was demanded of them. Not now. This book, the last that I will ever read for EfM, is so simplistic that it could easily be read by anyone, with no background in any faith whatsoever. It is mostly "feel-good" stories of people of various faith traditions finding common ground. How rigorous.
I feel that EfM has been hijacked by persons with an extreme liberal agenda. Being politically left-wing myself, one might think that this would not bother me. It does. First, I feel that EfM should be inclusive enough that people of a more conservative political outlook should not be totally alienated. I know several people to whom I would have recommended EfM prior to this year. They are open-minded enough to deal with the scholarly analysis of the bible found in the first two years, especially the dismissal of the historical accuracy of much of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament in Year One. However, they are not likely to respond to the political agenda pursued so aggressively this year. (The interlude texts contributed to this impression.) Second, I feel that books like the one under present consideration are direct attacks on conventional Christianity. In many of the little sketches, Christianity is presented in an unflattering light compared to another faith.Read more ›
A series of essays dealing with multicultural and/or interfaith relationships. The text reinforced my feelings that religion and faith are two different genre and one must be careful when examining and comparing strongly held beliefs in the name of religion. A complaint is that "as all else I've read in EfM this year, radicalism is still not addressed."
