How interesting. I have a rather lazy Saturday for once. I just finished reading the second half of this book. So I jump on my computer to write a blog post on some of what I read (some unnamed super-hero on this site keeps gently twisting my arm). What do I see - this post that agrees with quite a bit of what I was thinking. So DevilsAdvocate - please don't sue me for plagiarism. Take it as a complement of "great minds think alike".
This book is REALLY good. I liked both the religious aspect as well as the political aspect. I wish we could make it required reading for the US, or maybe a TV show. I think it would help the huge political divide shrink just a bit.
I found the middle section a bit slow, but it is setup for the last section which is really good and has lots of interesting things that flow from it.
