My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Be Intolerant. Be to the point. It sounds like the words of Ryan Dobson, and they are. After all, he did write the book, Be Intolerant: Because Some Things Are Just Stupid. This book, however, seeks to take a more professional and academic approach, creating a multi-generational approach to the situation at hand with the changing cultural landscape. While Dobson’s work was witty and harsh, the McDowells week to increase understanding and knowledge. Written by a father and son duo, this title is an excellent resource to parents who have trouble understanding their youth, as well as simultaneously adapting itself to help youth understand the ideals of their parents.

This book goes beyond making a faith that sticks and addresses how to establish intolerance that works when the faith doesn’t stick, or “sticks” yet does not have the same moral base. As most other reviewers have indicated, this book is not light. Not the best read for a quick moment or when one is tired, this book is reserved for when one can give it a more dedicated and serious attempt. Otherwise, readers will archive this title to a dusty shelf not long after their purchase.
