The Gospel of Arnie

( 1 )

Overview

As Arnie grew older, his sneer grew larger, and to those in his church, it became almost a historical landmark. It crawled up the right side of his face, exposing his back teeth and causing his right eye to lower, as if he were winking. Families who passed him on the playground or at the shopping mall stood in awe at the sight of it. Parents stared. Children turned away in fright. Often a mother, grabbing her son by the arm, would point to Arnie and say, "See that kid? You are ...

Overview

As Arnie grew older, his sneer grew larger, and to those in his church, it became almost a historical landmark. It crawled up the right side of his face, exposing his back teeth and causing his right eye to lower, as if he were winking. Families who passed him on the playground or at the shopping mall stood in awe at the sight of it. Parents stared. Children turned away in fright. Often a mother, grabbing her son by the arm, would point to Arnie and say, "See that kid? You are to have nothing to do with him. Do you hear?"

Feeling as though he has a new lease on life, teenager Arnie Shultz is all set to begin another school year - his freshman year of college - preaching at a Catholic school on the California coast. But Arnie's gospel is different from the one Jesus taught - while Jesus brought the Kingdon of God to earth, Arnie brings his own vision to campus.

    Should be required for all thinking Christians

    This novel is written for young adults but should be required reading for all thinking Christians. It's especially useful for church youth groups or teens/college students who are questioning the claims of traditional Christianity and wondering what it means to be a Christian in the modern world. In the book, Arnie, who has just left home for college, goes to a frat party where he's baptized with beer and bong water. After the devil enters into him, Arnie is never the same again (nor is the campus.) Throughout the school year, Arnie preaches a 'new gospel,' quite contrary to the gospel of Jesus, yet he manages to find redemption through it all--with the help of a renegade priest. This book was a gem to find, and I'll be recommending it to youth groups and college students. A must read for every thinking Christian willing to push the boundries of orthodoxy and tackle the difficult issues of the modern world.
