This fall I had two chances to hear Pete speak during his “Insurrection” speaking tour, so reading the book was a good way to hear a more organized and slow-paced version of the general concept. The slower pace was especially appreciated, since Pete’s a fast talker!
Reading was a different experience than listening, and I found myself less convinced by the breadth of Rollins’ argument – or, maybe more accurately, I recognized what I felt were limitations or boundaries on the “usefulness” of Rollins’ “pyro-theology” project that I didn’t pick up on hearing him speak. I’ll write a bit more about this later, but overall enjoyed the book.
This is Book 4 of hopefully many that will be read and posted about during Christmas Break 2011!
