OVERVIEW

This book was inspiring. I enjoyed reading about the author’s life and family. He made it so easy for me to dive into his thoughts and activities and to empathize with what challenges he has been forced to face and go through. It reminded me of God’s power, not just throughout the universe, but in my life as well. There were many parts of the book that I could not stop reading. By using stories, anecdotes, life lessons, memories, and personal observations, the author was able to draw in the reader well. The author’s words were both so personable and down-to-earth. I also enjoyed some of the creative phrases used, such as: “I took off my Christian mask and felt the sunlight on my face,” and “Somewhere in my mind, a warning switch was flipped, moving me from DEFCON 4 to DEFCON 3.” I could almost feel myself within the pages of the book. This book gives Christians new perspectives on what it means to appreciate God’s universe and how to relish in the joy of each day’s miracles.
