Yep. All three things. Because this book is about human nature. A theologically sophisticated friend of mine read it and loved it. “This is the most convincing account of human depravity I’ve ever read,” he said. “And it’s much funnier than Calvin.”
Calvin wasn’t a big hilarious goofball with rubber chickens and stuff, but I still take this as a compliment.
I hope it sparks a million conversations. Acknowledging our bias toward ourselves is not about a guilt trip. In the book, I lay out the argument that *everyone* is already unwittingly on a guilt trip, and admitting “the truth about us” is actually the only way off.
Me? I’m not a “good person.” There I said it.
But freedom is a beautiful thing.
