In the Orthodox Heretic and other impossible tales, Peter Rollins tells his stories in the way Jesus told parables. They are open-ended, inviting the hearer to determine their challenge, and how to best apply its message. Their intent is not so much to change our minds but rather to change our hearts. Like the new testament parables, Rollin's have a 'twist in the tale' and can be quite unsettling. Nevertheless, they are infused with a deep and abiding love for what may be required of us to genuinely follow Jesus.
