Book Review: Gospel of the Absurd by R. Scot Miller

Cherice Bock reviewed Gospel of the Absurd: Assemblies of Interpretation, Embodiment, and Faithfulness by R. Scot Miller for QRT Issue #133. A Friend and Earlham School of Religion grad (now ministering among Brethren), Miller does not write to a specifically Quaker audience, but “presents a Christian ethic based in the Bible and that belies his Friends perspective,” according to Bock. The review describes Miller’s Messianic care ethic, and discusses how Miller’s suggestion of faithful absurdity may be received by Friends today in both liberal and evangelical wings, intimating that neither may like what he has to say but it may be the kind of call all Friends need to hear. Order a copy of the review to learn more about this book and how it might speak to Friends.
