Book Review: Epic: The Story God is Telling and the Role that is Yours to Play by John Eldredge

Epic: The Story God Is Telling and the Role That Is Yours to PlayEpic: The Story God Is Telling and the Role That Is Yours to Play by John Eldredge
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It's interesting to re-read this at this point in my life. I think everything I like about the book is found in all of the quotes and references to G.K. Chesterton, Tolkien, and C.S. Lewis, and I'd rather just read those authors.

The main issue I have with this book now is the determinism/Calvinism/Blueprint theology I find Eldredge describing at times.

I'm still glad I read this back in 2004, but I'm not sure I'd be so quick to recommend it anymore.

(I originally gave this book 5 stars when I first read it several years ago. But even if it weren't for my theological differences with it now, I think it would get 3 stars at best.)
