I feel that is is IMPORTANT for me to revise this review right away, even though I am still in the midst of reading the book, because the Author produced a well written and very interesting story of which I am enjoying very much. I wish all the best of luck to him and look forward to reading more from him in the future.
So my new review is that THE POLAR BEAR is a great book and is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Thank you.
The polar bear analogy is representative of one the strengths of the book. Montgomery is a master analogist, using real life examples that beautifully illustrate his points. The title The Polar Bear, for example, arises out of his desire to be a "polarizing" writer who drives people to live beyond the lukewarm Christianity that so plagues our nation.
The book is divided into two sections. The first section deals with issues about the life of a Christian living in the world, and includes chapters on culture, speech, character, truth, faith, and love. Each chapter utilizes excellent personal examples and is clarion call to live radically different from the world. Montgomery's beef with modern Christianity, which I share, is that the differences between a Believer and a non-Christian are less and less apparent in today's society.
The second section is a basic detailing of fundamental doctrines of faith, including chapters on sin, salvation, sanctification, prayer, eternity, and God. Each of these "doctrines" are immense subjects that are so deep often entire books are written about each subject. However, Montgomery achieves a simple explanation of these principles and their importance in living a "polar bear" faith.
In places the book is laugh-out-loud funny, and the book works because of Montgomery's personal examples which are transparent and self-deprecating. It is rare to say that a book about such a serious subject is a fun read, yet that is exactly what Montgomery achieves in The Polar Bear.
