If you read only one book this year, make it this one!
You will cry and you will laugh. This book is like digging up the garden of your mind and questioning why you put some things there in the first place.
This story will effect your whole life, all of your relationships, and most especially your relationship with God.
I find myself torn between typing up a pages long monologue of my thoughts on this book and staying silent because I want you to experience it for yourself.
My children will read this book. My future husband will read this book. My friends will grow tired of me recommending this book. Forget “To Kill a Mockingbird”, every high school student should read this.
The Bible is the most important book in my life but the pictures in my head of Bible stories are OLD. They are visions of a life that looks nothing like mine. They are a world with no internet, no TV, no electricity, no cars.
I am convinced that God was truly with WM. Paul Young while he wrote this, helping him to vividly paint a picture for the modern world so that we may more readily understand that we are never ever alone.
When you finish the last chapter of this book, you will almost hear God whisper in your ear, “I am especially pleased with you.”
If you’ve read this book and want to talk about it, e-mail me, call me, text me, Skype me, send up a smoke signal and I’ll find you! I want to talk about it!
