A delightful light read. Simple and short. It attempts to illustrate why everyone needs God.

Definitely recommend it. 104 pages, what do you have to lose?
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.

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.
