This is a story like we see in my neighborhood where the church is not the centerpiece of the community. For many, it’s just a place to go on Sundays. For others, it’s something to avoid. And still others, it’s a place to find out more about their Savior. So what happens when people from two different beliefs collide? Good question. Elizabeth Maddrey gives us a glimpse of this in real time.
Why did I relate to this book? First of all, the characters. These were my family, friends, colleagues and even a few people in my life I wish I didn’t know. Real world people, with real world issues using real world dialogue. Elizabeth Maddrey does a masterful job of engaging the reader with her people.
I could also relate to the challenges these characters faced. One, as someone looking into issues of God AND as a devoted Christian living in a highly secular world.
Nothing cookie-cutter. No pat answers. Real stuff. Just people—sinners all—muddling through an imperfect world, looking for—and finding—glimpses of an all-loving Savior.
And that is why YOU should read this book!
I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
