I have read some books that have touched my soul, and have spoke to me, but none like this one has. A book that had me in tears, had me laughing, had me looking inward as to my beliefs and thoughts. It may be a work of fiction, but the way the author portrays the personas of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost is so unbelievably real that you find yourself wanting that intimate contact also. A book that teaches that it is not the church building that is as important as it is the daily walk with God and his people. This book takes a very believable character, Mac, or Mckenzie as he is sometimes called, as the main character, and shows how he handles a devastating tragedy in his family, how it affects him, his family around him, and brings him fact to face with God and how this meeting affects all; his anger, his guilt, his shame, his grief. Even if you are not a believer, this is a fiction book that has a great plot, wonderful characters, and a very soul stirring message. A MUST READ for everyone!

A very different view on the nature of God's love and the relationship we strive to have with him. I don't know if it changed my life but it certainly provoked thought.

This has got to be the best spiritual book I've ever read! It describes God in the way I've always known Him to be! A MUST READ for ALL, christians and non-christians alike! Not to mention that the story itself is intensely entertaining! A gripping story of suspense with a twist at the end to really make you think!
I will read it over and over!

I really wanted to like this book. However, I found it so ridiculous I couldn't force myself to finish it. I made it about 2/3's through but couldn't stop laughing at the silliness of the story. William Young is said to have written this originally for his children. That would certainly explain a lot. It does read more like a children's book with children's characters. A good friend recommended this book to me and she loved it so I think you either love it or despise it, sadly I'm in the latter category and cannot recommend it to anyone over the age of 8. I understood all the underlying symbolism, etc. but it still wasn't worth it.

I've read the book, I've gone to that "Mars Hill Church" website, and I am not convinced that the guy who is preaching a sermon against this book, which is published as fiction, has read the book. To hear him "summarize" it, he has not.
