The Devil in Pew Number Seven by Rebecca Nichols Alonzo. This one kind of snuck in there, but I am so glad it did! This book was an amazing testament to the power of forgiveness in the face of overwhelming odds. I believe that anyone who is having trouble forgiving would greatly benefit from reading the account of the author and the horrendous things that one man did to her childhood and family. There were times, when reading this book, that I so wanted to put it down and not read anymore! It seemed as if things could not possibly get worse! Tears were ready, but by the end of the book they were tears of amazement. The author did a wonderful job in telling the WHOLE story without sounding as if there were any trace of a grudge being held. I would readily give this book 5 stars and a round of applause.
Note: this book was provided to me complimentary by Tyndale House publishers in exchange for my honest review.
You hungry???? I am. I want to know my best friend and Lord, Jesus Christ, in every way I can! One of the ways that I get closer to God and learn more of his character is through reading. Did you know that you and I were created by THE one and only universe-maker for relationship? Did you know that he pursues you relentlessly? Yup. You were fearfully and wonderfully made specifically to love and enjoy your creator! There are some very gifted people out there whose talent is writing books... I am not one of them, but I enjoy seeing my Father God through their eyes and in the fruit of their labor. Thomas Nelson is a publisher whose books and bibles I have relied on for a long time to have integrity and quality. They just happened to be looking for book review bloggers so I joined the ranks! I am now reviewing for Tyndale House Publishers and Zondervan as well! I hope you enjoy these reviews and I hope you add your voice through the comment section of each post to let me know if you have read the specific book, offer your feedback and suggest other books too! Welcome. Make yourself at home! And, yes, the title of this blog is from the wonderful "Peanuts" comic strips :)
