This question puts all of life's circumstances in a new light. Those characters in Sheldon's book who take the challenge of this question seriously live dramatically changed lives.But a changed life responding to Jesus' example of compassion and grace does not always make things easier. People in Sheldon's story learn that acting like Jesus can alienate others who prefer status quo comfort and social respectability. The real challenge of the question, "What would Jesus do?" is not the initial fervor it evokes but the sustained devotion it can produce.
Yes, the story kept my interest to the end.
Simon Vance has the voice that changes with each character. I recognize the various characters he makes sound so real. I like his technique very much.
Homeschool mom reading lots of fiction with my teenage daughter. We read mostly classics but also some pop fiction and sci fi.
Yes, especially for children around late elementary or middle school age.
The sacrifice and loving attitude of some of the characters in the book is great. It will make you and your children evaluate how you are spending your time and money.
This is a good story that makes you think about your attitudes and prejudices to those in poverty and different situations in life but it becomes easy to predict after a while.
Probably not but you do wonder what happens to some of the characters.
The story is a good one, but it becomes a little bit predictable and borders on being preachy.
