Magnificent Obsession - a great book!,
This review is from: Magnificent Obsession: Why Jesus is Great (Paperback)
Magnificent Obsession is well worth a read. Full of interesting facts and anecdotes, it conveys deep truths in a way that is accessible to everyone, wherever they may stand in regard to faith in Jesus Christ and however strong their knowledge of science or history.
Reference is made to a wide range of sources and at many points I was feeling the urge to read more of the particular source. Usefully, in the conclusion, there are a number of references for further reading.
The format of the book as a series of letters makes it easy to pick up and there is clear progression through the topics covered. I found my thinking in some areas was refreshed and my understanding of other areas increased greatly. Overall, well worth a read - and good for a Christmas present, too!
