I'm only on chapter one and I am regretting this purchase tremendously. So far it's all moaning and groaning about what this "pastor" would have to give up in order to live like Jesus for a year - things like listening to Green Day on his iPod. He also makes a statement about being grateful that Jesus never addressed the subject of homosexuality, because he has a good friend who is gay and his partner is a Unitarian minister. I'm all for loving our friends, but let's not just accept sin and hint at the fact that it's a-okay with Jesus. A very disappointing audio book.
