MAX LUCADO IS A NAME YOU CAN ALWAYS ATRUST AND THIS BOOK IS NO EXCEPTION. HE MAKES YOU REALIZE THAT "I'M NOT AN IMPORTANT AS I THIN I AM" , EXCEPT IN GOD'S SIGHT. READING THIS BOOK BROUGHT ME A SENSE OF SEVURITY AND PEACE THAT I NEEDED BADLY.

ALLTHOUGH I ENJOYED THIS BOOK AS LIGHT READING, I FOUND IT WASN'T LYNN AUSTIN'S USUAL STYLE. IT LACKED THE THOUGHT PROVOKING STORY LINE WITH A DEEPER MEANING. HOWEVER, LYNN AUSTIN IS #1 IN MY AUTHOR PREFERENCE

tHIS BOOK IS A GOOD FICTION STORY, BUT NOTHING ELSE.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND ALL THE HYPE IT HAS CAUSED. ALTHOUGH IT WAS WELL WRITTEN AND WELL READ. THE CONTENT WAS TOO CONTROVERSIAL TO BE COMFORTABLE.
THE ISSUE OF FORGIVENESS WAS DEALT WITH VERY WELL.

AS USUAL, JOHN GIRSHAM KEPT ME INTERESTED FROM BEGINNING TO END. THIS BOOK WENT IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION FROM HIS OTHER BOOKS, MAINLY because he included the church with its controversies, which I appareciated. IT ALSO LEFT YOU THINKING OF THE RIGHT AND THE WRONG OF MAN'S ACTIONS. A VERY GOOD BOOK.
