it was amazing

I loved this book! From start to finish, it held my interest and got me thinking about the way I view my heart and what that means for my relationship with God. This book also really appealed to me because of its numerous Lord of the Rings references (don't worry - he references The Wizard of Oz, The Chronicles of Narnia, and even The Matrix) that show examples of how God's message has penetrated popular culture and yet we still don't open the eyes of heart. And that's what we have to do in order to live a full life, the life that Jesus promised. It's not just about eternal life. It's about now! I wish that I could start a bible study and go through this book with a group. It was fantastic!
