I was touched by this book, how a dual-degreed Harvard lawyer, named Arthur, gently showed the Lord to another highly-successful New York City executive and intellectual, the author, who had thought faith/relationship with Jesus Christ was for the weak or the foolish. Though wealthy and esteemed, the author had had to admit the emptiness of his life, the brokenness of his relationships, and the shallowness of the philosophies floating around Manhattan's boardrooms and gyms....all of which made h ...more

This book has a very personal tone; the author subtitles it "A Spiritual Memoir." Readers generally rate it well, as it seems to nourish the inner mystery of our busy lives. I just never trusted the narrative based on the author's improbable relationship with a senior executive named Arthur who took the same commuter train. The theme of the book has to do with balancing high-demand performance lives with time to build relationships with spouse, friends and Faith.

Memoir by Huntington University professor, former Wall Street executive who came to faith through the friendship of a man he met while commuting from Long Island into the city each day. Lovely testimony of the power of a transparent friend relationship to change someone's life. But truthfully, not a terribly well-written book.
