Out of 122 pages, Netgalley only provided the first 14, so in lieu of that information, it makes it difficult to access what his message is about and how it affects the gospel. Kinnamon encompassed all religions in how fear is used to oppress the masses. So the question becomes does fear oppress or does it warn and what I have read in the short 14 was not sufficiently answered but it gave food for thought that fear is greatly used in politics, the media, and social media to divide and conquer.
In my own mindset, fear only divides when not used to bring people together to solve injustice. When blame is the driving force, fear follows. The topic interests me so if netgalley and the publisher is willing, I would be willing to read the rest of the text.
A Special Thank you to Netgalley and Westminster John Knox Press for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
