This is an extremely thoughtful book. The stories in this book are very thought provoking and entertaining. This is the type of book that once you pick it up you cannot put it down. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever questioned their faith or the existence of God. This book gives hope to humanity without thrusting religion down your throat. A fantastic book!!

I guess it's only natural to have a slue of this type of book at this time of year, but it saddens me.

I fully except the line do unto others as you want them to do to you, paraphrasing a little, but it always seems the people of faith ignore it. There is a claim that all wars are fought over religion, I don't know if this is true. But if it is, then more people of faith need to read this book

Thanks for the great review.

Great review and thank you for sharing. It sounds like the author provides readers with a different outlook on religion and particularly faith as you mentioned. This sounds like something I would enjoy.

I normally don't read books about religion but this book actually explores a unique concept that can be applied to many different faiths. The fact that faith plays a different role in the different stages of our life and that we eventually all have questions. It's great that it was professionally edited and you didn't find any mistakes. Great job on your review! :)

The book brings back hope to humanity. A lot of people are wearing and tired of the test life is bringing unto them. At times when people fought for their own lives just to survive this unfair world, this book serves as a spiritual healer to them. Reading this brings enlightenment. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

Latest Review: Diary of a Snoopy Cat by R.F. Kristi

Post by Gbemisola » 26 Dec 2017, 22:15

I like the subject matter of today's book. I have also had my share of questions about beliefs I've been taught while growing up as a Christian. I have also asked the questions to different people and listened to their answers. Some I agreed with and others, I didn't. But most of all, when I have such questions, I pray and look for answers myself in the Bible. This far, I have not been disappointed and I remain a Christian.

This is an outstanding Review of what sounds like an outstanding piece of non-fiction.

I went to Church regularly as a child, until I was 12 years old. My parents never attended church, so what they believed, "if" they believed, was never a question I asked. What I did question when I was old enough to understand "critical thinking" wasn't "is there a God?" I've always known, for myself who He is and we chat nightly. I questioned the "organized-religion" aspect of the Church. So I moved on from the organizational aspect of a "religious doctrine" it left too much, in my humble opinion, to interpretation by a regular person depending on denomination.

That said, I take a more "Spiritual" attitude towards "Faith" as opposed to aligning with any particular religious sect of Christianity. Mad respect for anyone who has found their Faith & Family in whatever it is that manifests the feelings of love, charity, caring and respect for others.

Well, I'm real glad you enjoyed the read. Shows it truly was engrossing and strong enough to personally impart onto your life. Not sure it's for me though but thanks for the review.

Thanks for the review! It's amazing how you were able to find answers to important questions through reading this book! That's inspiring. I can't see myself finishing this book due to the fact that I don't believe it will help me grow in my faith. It's a matter of where I am today, and the questions I'm currently battling.
