Summary
Shows that the Christian story is the greatest story ever told, because it gathers up what is true in all the fantasy stories of the world and makes them as solid, true, and real as a tribe of dusty nomads in the desert or the death of a carpenter-king. The author calls for the return of the romantic hero-- the hero who knows his frailty and can fight the good fight with panache, humor, and courage. Conflict and romance are everywhere in the story of Christ, and our response is to dust off our armor, don our broad-brimmed hats, pick up our swords, and do battle for Christ with confidence, wonder, and joy
Summary
Looks at the story of Christianity in its function as myth, arguing for viewing Christianity and Christian life as an adventurous, fabulous, mythical journey that embodies religious truth
