Reconstructing the Gospel by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove

Reconstructing the Gospel

This was a book I was quite interested in reading based on the description. After finishing it and thinking about it for a while I must say, it was not the book I thought it would be. Instead of a book that offered possibilities, it offered despair. Instead of offering solutions, it offered setbacks. Instead of offering constructive dialog, it offered a dismal soliloquy based on the author’s experiences.

Reading Wilson-Hartgrove’s book led me to search out other similar books. That search led me to The Gospel of Hope by the modern-day theologian Walter Brueggemann. While I cannot recommend Reconstructing the Gospel. I would suggest if you have an interest in the subject, then read it for yourself. I would challenge you to also read Brueggemann’s The Gospel of Hope.

I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and InterVarsity Press in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
