Rice writes, “This book is designed to be an open conversation, using current cultural references and stories to draw us into a thoughtful conversation about what the Gospel really is and how it radically alters our everyday lives.” (Loc 55/2095)
Rice is a good story teller. He tells stories about his own experiences, such as driving I-287 in a rain storm. He also retells historical stories, such as Scott's attempt to reach the South Pole. He then relates a truth of the Gospel to the story.
This would be a good book for people who are not familiar with the Bible. Discussing this book with another would be a nonthreatening way to begin a conversation about the Gospel.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review. Since I read an ARC, the quote may have been changed in the published edition.
