Summary
This book shows how God has traditionally been approached as a product that will render us complete, remove our suffering, and reveal the answers. It introduces a radical approach to faith that invites us to joyfully embrace our brokenness, resolutely face our unknowing, and courageously accept the difficulties of existence. Only then can we truly rob death of its sting and enter into the fullness of life
