I like that author was intentional in his delivery of these sensitive topics. They can certainly be hard to navigate. It seems like he was very self-aware in the narrative of this book. Good job with the review.

It's nice that this book is also written with non-religious people in mind. It is also quite unusual to have an impartial point of view projected by the author. Excellent review of a book worthy of a closer look.

This seems like a touching story about how the author found his way after losing his arm in a boat accident. However, I don't like religious books, so I'll pass.

A book that contains the author's (Dale Lisi's) life story and lessons about God and life. I don't think this one would interest me. Congrats on the BOTD though.

Latest Review: Rescued by E. Alan Fleischauer

Post by timd »

I am not religious from a Christian point of view, therefore this book sounds interesting in its approach to the questions of good and evil. There is an argument as to whether there is such a thing as ultimate good and evil, or whether these are just abstract concepts created by humans. I will be interested to read the author's opinion about this. I like the fact that theses issues are not handled in a purely Christian perspective as I feel this would prejudice any arguments put forward. I look forward to reading this book and following the author's arguments. Your review was concise and interesting.

Your review aptly identifies the book's strong points. I agree with you that it is more appealing to me than the many other books focused on religion that I read or sampled.
Perhaps it is because the author only refers to his own experiences and does not presume to preach what he believes in.
I have a small "complaint" though about the review: you say "Good and Evil had a central message which the author drove home effectively.", but you never say what the message is. Or would that be disclosing too much?

All in all, it is a great review and I thank you for it! :tiphat:

Good and Evil is an Informative book that corrects and educates humans on the miseries of life. This makes the book stand out from many other religion-related materials that I have read before. Congrats on BOTD selection

Good and Evil ~ tell a story in the life of Dale Lisi's life story and lessons learned, of God and Life. A bit scary, and brings out a thrilling feeling. He educates humans on the miseries of life and contains a great writing line.

A respectable book, when referring to people of a different faith. He spoke of advantages and disadvantages of hard drugs. A book written for anyone with a religious centered biographical Christianity.

~Thanks to the Author

I don't usually read religious books because they come across as preachy. From your review it sounds like this author avoids that while still getting his message across. Thanks for writing such a clear and concise review.

I’m not normally someone who would read a religious book at all so I’m not sure this would be for me. I’m glad you appreciated the writing and hope others will also.

What a heavy plot. I think this book has a lot deeper meaning that it seems to have.
