Integrity, wit and passion. A fine advocate for the best of Christian thought and a faith that encompasses the human as well as the divine.
In an era when hysteria and hate-filled anger are seeking a new respectability in public discourse, Michael Coren is a welcome voice of sanity, reminding us that God is worshipped as a God of love.
Rev. Prof. Diarmaid MacCulloch, Professor of the History of the Church, University of Oxford
Christianity today often comes in two forms: ignorance on fire or intelligence on ice. Michael Coren offers a different route. His theology enters the mind via the heart. His belief is in a God who loves us as we are but who doesn't want us to stay like that. Faith is the 'sandpaper of the soul', amending the human self in order to edit the world into somewhere more just and livable. If religion for you is just the bland leading the bland, then stop. Pick this book up and give it a go. It just might be that you too will become, in the spirit of Christ, a rebel with a cause.
Rev. Canon Mark Oakley, Dean of St John's College, University of Cambridge
Coren’s blunt writing style may stretch the ideas of his conservative readers while bolstering those of his more progressive audience; the personal anecdotes sprinkled throughout the text complement his conclusions. For thoughtful theologians and laypeople alike.
