Has anyone read this book?  It was SOOO good!!!  The authors are Ron Hall and Denver Moore.  The book is about a homeless man who meets a christian couple at a homeless shelter and their struggles.  It is a true book and I couldn't help but cry!  Let me know your thoughts!

Janna and Shayla, let me know when you do read it!  I have talked several friends from work into reading this one as well as The Shack!  We are just passing them from one person to the next!  Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Unfortunately I am LOW on the WL, so it will probably be a while before I get my hands on it unless I win it in a swap game!

My pastor mentioned this book one Sunday.  I've ordered it from Amazon.  Will post after I read it.

This book must really be good. This is the second time in as many days that I've heard rave reviews about this book.  It's on it's way to me right now.

I'm set to review this book on my blog on October 23rd so I have to have it read by then.  I love The Shack and just read another book (reviewing it on October 2nd) called "One Extra Ordinary Day" by Harold Myra that is similar in its spiritual truths and insights but fictionalized storyline.  I'm hoping for similar spiritual insight from this book :-)

I just put One Extraordinary Day on my wishlist today!  I am looking forward to reading it.  I loved The Shack too!  It has started a reading frenzie where I work!  It is fun when you can discuss books that have moved you.  Janna, I will be watching for your blog.
