I have read one other of Mr. Ortberg's books and was looking forward to this, but am a bit disappointed. Here he tries to be funny, but it doesn't work. I am still a bit miffed about his comment that God doesn't like cats, they are not a biblical animal - say what? Zebras aren't mentioned in the Bible either - so does that mean God doesn't like them? And what has that got to do with anything? I think the author should forget his attempts to be funny. It detracts from the message.
