This review is from: Soul Survivor: How My Faith Survived the Church (Paperback)
This is one of the best books I've read in years. It's honest, hugely refreshing and hugely encouraging to the struggling Christian all at the same time.
If your a Christian buy it and read it. If your someone disallusioned by the Christian church or even individual Christians you've met, get this and read it.
The authors literary biographical journey through the lives of some well known and some less so Christians (& even the odd person who wasn't - such as Ghandi but who's life & behaviour was heavily infuenced by Christ) is a series of huge revelations. It's also written from the point of view of how these figures have influenced the authors own Christian journey.
Powerful and wonderful stuff, especially if your journey of faith is hitting rocky territory.
I think for people who don't believe yet but are curious it would also be an excellent read.
A brilliant book indeed - I thank The Lord for it !
