The final pages of the book hit me personally as Rod's wife told her story of her miscarriage. My wife and I could relate to her tragedy as we have experienced that tragedy more than once. That made the entire reading of this book worth it!
I've seen Parsley on television and was not terribly impressed. A younger version of Falwell or Robertson. This book however shows some originality which hopefully will lead the Fundamentalists into a more productive dialogue with more mainstream denominations.
I was shocked to see him take on the issues of race and poverty. I've never seen Pat Robertson address the issue of poverty, largely because to do so might undermine his preference for laissez faire capitalism. The fact that Parsley addresses these issues gives me the impression that he is seeking justice . . . even if I don't agree with how's he going about it.
He also talked about Islam. This chapter deserves points for originality but it is largely laced with ignorance and poor research. The idea that abortion should be banned as a method of out-growing Islam was, I think, the most appalling argument I've ever heard.
Then, chapters on abortion and homosexuality reveal nothing new. The abortion argument, other than the one above, are the same. He shows the same obsession on genitality, rather than the nature of the relationship, that the other people I see on TBN do. The scientific evidence is overwhelmingly clear that sexual orientation is determined biological factors, it's not a choice. Of course, I'm sure he would dismiss this, as he probably does evolution, as liberal bias, a nice way to ignore the truth. The man actually quotes the Family Research Council, which is not the most objective research available. "Knowledge isn't all it's cracked it up to be" is an actual quote from the book. Apparently, for Parsley, religion is about controlling thought rather than cultivating the love of Christ in our heart.
At any rate, if you are inclined to agree with Parsley (obviously I am not) I would recommend you read this book. Even if are like me and think he's simply wrong or ignorant on many points, I would still read it because we mainstream Christians need to enter into more dialogue with Fundamentalists, and he represents the future of that movement.
Finally, to conservatives who read this review and get angry let me offer this. The point of Christianity is to reconcile the world to God through Christ, not make sure we agree on every issue. We can disagree and still be bound in love by the act of worship. Peace be with you.
