OVERVIEW

The path to becoming a Christian is like a road. Using that metaphor, Thomas Dillon describes the various steps people must take to understand the need for salvation, why only certain choices lead to heaven, and how to overcome common misconceptions about salvation and the successful Christian life.

Thomas picks a fascinating metaphor to describe salvation, and some of the examples he uses along the way to describe spiritual concepts are interesting. Ultimately though, whatever points Dillon wants to making get obscured by an awkward writing style and mediocre descriptions. This is particularly a problem because The Road to Glory covers such a well-known and well-worn topic, so it needs to be not just good but exceptional to be worth reading. Despite good ideas and an intriguing concept, Dillon’s execution keeps the book from reaching its full potential.
