Camp asks McLaren (or Rob Bell) type questions and then provides his own answers in a “post modern theology meets Mark Driscoll” kind of way (open-minded condescension). Active participants of the Emergent movement will find the book to be a re-run, and educated conservative evangelicals will have heard all these arguments before (but without Billy Graham being used as support for said arguments). There was a time evangelicals heard these beliefs from those outside the Christian faith; now they are the tenets of fellow believers. This book brings no new controversy to any conversations. Rather it perpetuates the same controversies under a new title.
On a scale of grimace to happy dance, I give it a firm “meh.”
