Halfway Herbert - All Law, No Gospel?

Francis Chan has a children's book.  I love most of what I have heard from him so I was surprised to read this review.

Writing for the White Horse Inn Blog, Brooke Mintun writes:
My problem with Chan’s book isn’t that it emphasizes our obligation to live righteously; it’s that it doesn’t acknowledge in any way the fact that Christ has already lived righteously for us – the imperative is given without the indicative; there’s law, but no gospel – which is only half the truth revealed in Scripture and half the message children need to hear.
Read the rest.

I would be curious to hear from any of you who have this book, if you felt the same way.
