Sin Bravely: A Joyful Alternative to a Purpose-Driven Life - Mark Ellingsen Some interesting thoughts and historical basis are scattered through this not unjustified attack on Rick Warren and contemporary Puritanical Christianity. The misuse of science to justify some of these ideas rubbed me the wrong way, detracting from his overall position. The author does make several good points on the origins of American Christianity, and the ease with which the people flock to this plusher path. I value this slim volume as much for its bibliography as its main points, and that is a shame.
