Go out and buy “Chaos & the Kingdom”

OpenForum_Eliminate_ChaosA friend of mine, Michael T. Bush, co-wrote (with Nathanael Vissia) “Chaos & the Kingdom,” a book designed for small group discussions, but I read it on my own and got quite a bit out of it.

The book explores six Biblical stories — among them the flood, and Jesus’ walking on water — through the prism of exploring the good news of the Bible, which is, by Bush and Vissia’s telling, the idea that we can create heaven right here, that we can create kingdom in the chaos.

I found the book thought-provoking, yet easy to read at the same time, if that makes sense. I can cheerfully and freely tell you it’s well worth your time.
