This is one of those books were they discuss everything. The discussion is often intellectual and even sometimes entertaining, but mostly very little happens.

As a real chaplain and fan of science fiction I can say this is one of the best books I've ever read. The alien culture is imaginative, thought-provoking and creative while still sharing the fun of standard bug aliens. The philosophical and religious questions of military and Chaplaincy are also very compelling and accurate. Plus the narrator has many sutle and diverse character voices

To me, three stars means: pleasant. The story was enjoyable though I did feel like it dragged on a bit sometimes. It didn't change my life. I wouldn't listen to it again. But I'm glad I did. Likewise, the narrator is good. I liked him. But I'm not in a rush to listen to anything else he's done. I'd still recommend this to friends who are interested in Sci-fi and religion.
The only thing I really didn't like was the constant shifting back and forth between past and present. It's a great device but it was overused and eventually got a bit tedious. That said, the beginning is really good and I thoroughly enjoyed the desert chapters.
