A really good book, but you have to like reading emails. The book is a combination of emails received on www.theooze.com and Spencer Burke’s comments and dialogue, which are excellent. Spencer does a good job of debunking the hero leadership myth that is so prominent with many writers in their 50’s and 60’s. He also takes a stab at the dishonesty of many of the things most churches do today and call it worship. Anyone wanting to get a glimpse of the emerging conversations about faith will want to read this book.
