Reads more along the lines of Frank Peretti's "Darkness" books in reference to the realm of spiritual warfare, than Ted Dekker's Circle Trilogy, which is what I'm used to from this author. A good book, just not what I was expecting.
A must read for all Christ followers. This book is chocked full of wonderful, true insights in to how we should be living our lives if we are to be Spirit filled followers of our Lord and Savior. I'd give it 10 stars if I could.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book since I had read quite a few Ted Dekker novels in the past and if you have read any of his books you know what I mean. They are pretty intense, riveting, and sometimes scary. But, with Bill Bright's talent mixed into this book the story was beyond words on a page. I still think about this book from time to time and I am considering just having a copy to open up every now and again. I rarely read a book that gives me goose-bumps and this is one of the few that has. This is a thought provoking and heart-moving story that will break your heart and then rebuild it all over again better than it was before. I know that sounds lame but it is the truth..you will be changed by the sweet young boy in this book.
This is an awesome book for anyone who is interested in walking with God. It's a fascinating portrait of the pure faith of a young boy, which results in amazing healings and other acts of God. I love it that the boy experiences the intimate presence of God at all times, and that this often results in a spontaneous joy that cannot be suppressed. I also love it that through the boy God shows up in human affairs in amazing ways. Unfortunately this is not a true story--would that it were!
In my opinion this is by far the best book I have ever read and I have read countless books in my life. From the very first page I was hooked and could not put it down. An emotional rollcoaster this book reminds you how much our Lord loves us and that He is always there no matter how we feel at the time. I highly recommend this book.
Interesting book. A modern parable of sorts. I like to read fiction that makes you think about your christian walk.Jack Hayford wrote of this book that is is a letter from God's heart to every Christian! A cutting edge call to the church.
