Review of A Rooster Once Crowed: A Commentary on the Greatest Story Ever Told
by Bryant Cornett
When I was a kid, I thought the greatest superpower-the one I'd most want to have was to "know" a book by touching it. I imagined running up and down the aisles of a library soaking in every book I could touch.
It's a perfect superpower, because it's so powerful, yet it's also so flawed. Imagine a 10 year-old exposed to even one aisle of a library. And as I got older, I realized that not all books are created equal. Some are great in their own context. Others contain greatness and junk. Others were built to sell something-themselves, an idea or an agenda.
In the end, that superpower would have been my undoing. I would have died under the weight of it and been insufferable (ok, more insufferable). The efficiency of information flow isn't what I really needed, it was discernment to tell the difference.
I've written a book. I love it and hope you do, too. I've got two more planned. But more than selling these books, my prayer is that folks will read this and hear the truth of the Gospel speak through it.
My dream is that one day, we will all know and curate the Gospel Story as much as we know and love any of these great stories told here. These stories we write are That Story, and I can't wait to see how and when we all realize that. I'd love to get your thoughts on that and the book.
