The thought that provokes thought is much more valuable than the thought that is only an echo of an accepted truth. - Thomas W. Hanford
The author engages his readers with well-known Biblical parables and teachings, establishing his bold but well-defended position that today’s Christians should reorient themselves away from the arcana of denominations and church leaders and toward a strong, personal, one-on-one relationship with God. He argues passionately for abandoning an over intellectualized or misleadingly scholastic approach to biblical matters, asserting that the only way to understand God is spiritually rather than intellectually. But by no means does that position suggest that Walker is careless with his research or analysis; indeed, he draws on a range of texts to support his argument, which a number of pastors have described as refreshingly eye-opening and insightful.
