I am a student at a Protestant seminary and was given Ishmael as a Christmas gift. I read it in a few days and purchased The Story of B soon after. I consider myself open minded and enjoy reading things that challenge my faith. Unlike Jared, I have not yet reached the 50th degree of losing my faith. I understand that to fully accept what is written in these works, Christianity is not an option because it is a symptom, or maybe helps us deal with the symptoms, of being a taker culture. Are there ways to understand and apply Quinn’s message that would be acceptable within faith and not apart from it? Is it possible to accept that there is a God (big G) and still entertain some of the elements of the Ishmael story?
