Having read Joshua and enjoyed it, I snapped this up when I found it. Though the story was okay, I was disappointed in the book, overall. As others have stated, the writing was clumsy - a bit amateurish. The characterization of these inner-city residents was not believable. Still, wading through the less-than-stellar writing would have been worth it for the sake of a really good story. The bigger issue is that the theology presented in the book is atrociously unbiblical. The last thing we need is one more universalist, but that is just what we get in this story. Worse, we get a JESUS who is universalist. What a grievous misrepresentation of the King of kings and Lord of lords! Repeatedly, Joshua equates Yahweh and Allah, Islam and Christianity. Politically correct but Biblically INcorrect, this one was so bad it went in the garbage.
