The God Who Smokes ~ Timothy J. Stoner

This book is told in the eyes of the author Timothy J. Stoner. It a very heavy theology book about comparing emergent theology to Christianity. I had a very hard time getting through this book as theology is not an interest of mine.

This book took alot longer for me to finish and I read other books in between because my interest are books that I can relate to and become attached to the subject and characters. If you enjoy a heavy read (having to really pay attention and think through what you are reading) then this book is for you. If you are a person that enjoys studying and comparing then you will enjoy this book. I can't really explain this book as it was too deep for my taste and interest. I did enjoy the part of the book that Timothy tells about his life experiences. If the book stayed with the story and didn't switch to the theology and references of his stories then I would have loved this book.

I can recommend this book to a few of my friends that are in love with theology. On a personal side, I can not recommend this as I could not give a good explanation of what I really read.
