Thanks for the review Jonny. I had a conversation with +Michael a few months ago so knew it was coming out and that he had found the experience very enjoyable.

I catch myself wondering, again and again, what is it that continues to give the impression of God as so unwelcoming, so restrictive and so unloving. Why is it that we are constantly needing to emphasize this in liturgies and activities of radical welcome. Is it people's experience, assumptions, or is it that there are churches out there that are screaming that God hates people, reluctantly accepts and basically loathes us. In other words, where is the other message coming from?
