A delightful light read. Simple and short. It attempts to illustrate why everyone needs God. It describes a longing imprinted on our hearts the day we were born, a longing to reconcile with our creator. I find the simplicity simply gratifying. Definitely recommend it. 104 pages, what do you have to lose?

I found this story to be weak and uneventful for the biblical subject matter in it. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

I have a really hard time giving a book 1 star, especially a Christian author, but if I'm honest, I have to give the book 1 star. I did not like this book at all. I usually like novellas, but this one either didn't have enough plot because it was only 100 pages or it just shouldn't have been written. I couldn't figure out how the main character had such an epiphany based on the not really very deep conversations he had with an angel. I also did not get the subplot with the old men the man was ha ...more
Fictional, rather lightweight attempt to explore the connection between one man in despair and God. I found it superficial on most levels, and there are far better books available that explore man's relationship with God, doctrinally, philosophically, theologically, and even fictionally. This one tried too hard to be inspiring and profound, and accomplished neither.

This book did not live up to my expectations. RE Man in emotional termoil meets with a messenger from God. Not enough depth to the story, hoped it would get much better. Fortunately a short read so did not waste too much time on it.

This book was indeed written with good intentions. For a short read, it was alright. Good enough that I finished the book and didn't put it down immediately. However, I found the story to be a bit too common and lacking.

I didn't get the story... and now it's forgotten. I guess it could have been a lot better.
