I am not sure if there is already a thread on this but I can't find it so I figured I'd go ahead and post about it. So, there is this book. I've heard good Christian people I respect endorse it but I've also heard the negative. I read the book last week and thought it was a lousy book and would not endorse it. I like what Tim Challies had to say on the book and totally agree with him. Well, our staff put together a list of books for the congregation for summer reading. My husband was in charge of the "grown-up" books and then the children's pastor was in charge of the kid books. This was on the kid list. I removed these books from our box of books that we had available to sell to the congregation for their convenience (we sold them at cost) because I just feel it is not a good book for Christians to be setting their minds on. Are we looking to a 4 year old for our theology? But I wanted to know what you all thought about it. Just today we had a visitor at church (we meet in a hotel so often we will have the guests come to church with us) and she was raving about Barbara Walter's show that was on last night about heaven and she said she called her pastor and told him that he had to watch it. "It was fantastic!!" she said. She also told me about this book and said that it's a "must read" then told my 11 year old son that he HAD to read it. Umm - no. But I didn't want to get into a discussion with her since she won't be coming back again and it just didn't seem timely. So what say you??
