Harriet Sandmeier on The Orthodox Heretic

Audacious! Provocative! Compelling!

British author Peter Rollins captures our unsuspecting consciences with the first words in the introduction to his most recent publication, and propels us into spiritual introspection and often mind-blowing recognition as we proceed through his insistence that we pay attention to the unspeakable. Such was my experience with this small book of thirty-three modern-speak parables and their accompanying Rollins commentaries. Rollins, indeed, called out from these pages for me to “get real, sister!”

Rob Bell has written of these parables, “Everybody needs to hear these. And now you can.” You can read, hear, and absorb individually or within a group, but whatever you do, DO read, hear, and absorb! I predict that your experience will lead to a clearer, if far more challenging, walk in true Gospel shoes.

Prepare to be startled! Prepare to be accosted spiritually! Prepare to face Christ as Rollins presents Him in our face.
