Read in January, 2004

This is a book that I absolutely love, about a couple who decide to live with their love as their God. It's a pretty amazing relationship, and along the way, they encounter the Living God. It's such a lovely story (and it's true!) and heartbreaking at the same time.
The only caveat is that the beginning of the book is dreadfully slow. I urge anyone who starts reading this book to press on past Sheldon's little stroll down memory land, and wait for the good stuff.
And, as an added bonus, our good friend C.S. Lewis makes an appearance midway through the book with our pair of heroes moves to England to go to school in Oxford.

It's definitely on my list of must-reads!
