Bohlman lays out a parable that is brief, to the point, and filled with mysteries and treasures of God’s love. The commentary he provides for more than half of the book is designed to allow the reader an opportunity to fully digest the principles that are laid out within the story. What was the cross really about? What is God’s love, really? Overall, I liked the idea of this book more than the actual book. I had a difficult time matching the principles provided in the commentary to the story. This book should be treated as a personal devotional and approached with care, contemplation, and a mind set on reflection with research. I’ve no doubt that given a second reading in the right environment and the right commitment that this book could easily become one of my favorites.
