Soon and Very Soon can be best described as the marriage of two people, two Christian leaders, two congregations, and two styles of serving God. I usually can get through books in a matter of a day or two, however, it took me several days to complete this book. The story is told in somewhat of a slow-paced manner, but what caused me to slow down my reading was the actual content of the book. There are so many thought-provoking ideas in this novel that it is best experienced over time.

Being a female Pastor who's married to a Pastor, I could relate to the characters.

Sometimes we don't want to obey either, but we have no choice. Obeying God is the beginning of true abundant life.
