Do you think Christianity is sense or nonsense? Do you have lots of questions you want to ask about the relevance of Christianity in this culture that we live in?
How has science affected faith? What are the difficulties associated with prayer? What is spirituality? Am I as free as I think I am? What will happen to the church?
Is the bible true? What has happened to community life? These are some of the questions this book tries to answer.
It is written for people in the church who are struggling with their faith and hanging on by their finger nails. It is also written for those who find the church irrelevant because it is hanging on to outmoded ways of thinking. The book takes the form of a conversation between the author and a clown called Zeno, the author’s alter ego. The author is not allowed to lapse into jargon or long words. If so, he is challenged by Zeno to explain himself.
The book is a light hearted, honest attempt to examine issues affecting all who are trying to live a Christian or spiritual life. Funny and yet profound. Learn and laugh at the same time. Much of the material is drawn from the author’s experience as a Methodist Minister.
Some may find this book too radical and discomforting, others liberating, but for all it will bring a smile. There is something moving and deeply spiritual about a good laugh. It is like internal jogging.
