Review: Messy: God Likes It That Way

A.J. Swoboda writes like he’s trying to do praise song lyrics. No complete sentences. Just thoughts. Flying at you from the page. Yet this very fragmented, sometimes grammatically chaotic style reflects his main point: Christians aren’t perfect, and the church is as messy as the world. When God creates out of nothing, He first makes the nothing, the unformed matter, and then proceeds to shape it over time into something very good. And here, now, we are in that shaping process, and the fragments of unfinished material are both around and within us. Church, then, is not a place to get fed. It is a place to bless others. Real community can only be found among people who acknowledge the mess in their lives and stop trying to pretend that everything is perfect. ...

Apparently James Joyce used the technique of "stream of consciousness," but then so do insane people. It is a technique that isn't appreciated any more in English literature, probably still on the fringes of psychology, and obviously something that God never used. The Bible is manual, and it what a confusing manual it would be, if He had used that technique.

Thanks Jim... I read the article and thought perhaps the book was meant as sarcasm? But sadly I think the author is being sincere.

Angelia not bad at all, God is very orderly, you don't see the Bible being put forth in the Stream of consciousness. This should have went out with late 19th early 20th century writers. Usually disorganized thought is associated with being nuts.

Swoboda needs to grow up... This reminds me of a child who doesn't want to make his bed in the morning. Whatever happened to God being orderly and Christians striving to live disciplined lives? One can just take a look at the stars and planets or creation in general to see that God is not disorderly.
