Over the Christmas break I re-connected with a friend from college who I had lost track of. We were having coffee one morning and his wife called sobbing and said she had just read an unbelievably impacting book. I didn’t know his wife, so I assumed that was just her personality… the emotional type. Two days later he called me and said that he had read the book too and that I really needed to get a copy.
Initially the book seemed a little contrived and alot just weird. I knew what the author was trying to get at. It just seemed a strange way to get there… Boy was I early in my judgment!
Half way through I was hooked. And if by now you’re wishing that I would just tell you what this one’s about… that’s what I’m trying to do. I’m hoping that you’ll be interested enough to read it for yourself. It’s a quick read. You can probably finish it in a day or two. It’s actually tough to put down.
This book helped me remember the simplicity of the message of Jesus.

Rob, thanks for highlighting this book. Your vague, but enthusiastic, 🙂 review prompted me to request the book from the library. It was a fascinating read.
Vague on purpose… of course you already knew that. Glad you picked it up and read it. What a great reminder of how lost people think!
Hope all is well with you and yours.
