A Row with Two Chairs by Scott Laurence Mocha is a riveting narrative of how a man, once bound by addiction, found redemption through his miraculous journey with God. The author shares his personal conversion story, recounting his descent into deprivation, overdose on drugs, and subsequent acceptance of Jesus Christ, which transformed his life. He reflects on his experiences, including his missionary sojourn in Paris, detailing encounters, and his return to the United States. The narrative delves into the relationships formed along the way, explaining why the author is content with the life he has lived. To immerse yourself in this gripping tale of redemption, salvation, grace, and triumph, acquire a copy of this book.
I was engrossed with the writer's narrative and the individual stories. As a whole, it was a glorious testimony of what God does in the life of a person. His story gives hope to those who feel they don't deserve God's love or mercy. He helps readers understand that there's no need to convince God of their worthiness; the grace of God is available to everyone willing to accept Christ.
There were many positives in the book. The author shares how a simple prayer of salvation transformed an addict into a missionary. His strong faith in God and consistently committing everything to prayer, even basic needs like money for gas fare to church and food, are commendable. He shows that Christianity isn't overly complicated, and there's no fixed rule for how God guides His children; it's not always about visions or angelic visits. The highs and lows of his Christian journey will serve as encouragement for others going through similar situations.
I commend the author for his boldness in sharing his personal story. His writing is honest and simple, laying out his feelings, dissatisfaction with his life, and his search for God's purpose. The book provides readers with a front-row seat to his redemption journey. The writer addresses the common question many people ask themselves today: "Do I have what it takes?" For those who feel unworthy or inadequate, Scott's story offers hope, emphasizing that you are worthy and enough.
I enjoyed this book thoroughly, finding nothing to dislike. The author, in crafting this piece, acknowledges the imperfections in his life. Despite life's flaws, he expresses satisfaction with the way God has aided him. The message to readers is a call to reflect on life's experiences and yearn for more. I must commend the editor for an excellent job; the book is free of any typographical errors. I give it 5 out of 5 stars for its inspiring narrative and hopeful message. I recommend it to believers, new converts, and pastors—a book for everyone, emphasizing that miracles exist and no one is beyond redemption.
