I had the privilege of being on the launch team for David A.R. White's book Between Heaven and Hollywood which means I was one of a group of individuals who were able to gain access to this book before anyone else. We were to read this book and then submit reviews for it. So here goes. This book is interesting in that it is like a combination of a biography and a self help book rolled into one and that's probably why it's so good. David uses past life experiences to help get his point across whi

I had seen David A. White in movies and was excited to be selected to receive an early copy of his book, Between Heaven and Hollywood. However, I had no idea whether or not the author really had a story to tell or how well he could convey it if he did. Well, I need not have worried! Between Heaven and Hollywood is a masterfully written, compelling story that touches every emotion. One minute I was laughing as David shared a funny story from his life, but the next moment I was shedding a tear and ...more

A Dream Chasing Guide book

This was a very practical book. David skillfully uses his life experiences as practical examples of each point he makes. He shows us that God is the key to achieving our dreams without being preachy. It's an easy book to read and you will learn some valuable dream-chasing lessons along the way.

Non-Refundable Read

This book is a non-refundable. Great Story of Mr. Whitney's walk with God. It is always so amazing to see God at work.

I have the privilege of being a part of David's launch team for this book so I was able to read it prior to it's release date. The first word that comes to mind is "WOW". The book is entertaining, motivating, sad, funny, inspirational, helpful and impossible to put down. I stayed up way past my bedtime on a couple of work nights because I didn't want to stop reading. I have wondered for many years why some people have a God-given dream and embark on a journey to fulfill it while I never seemed t ...more

Having watched both God's Not Dead and it's sequel I was familiar with David AR White. He plays the minister. However I did not remember him from early 90's sit-coms. This book starts with his upbringing in the Mennonite church to his first foray in acting and how each step led him to start the company Pure Flix. A quick and interesting read this gives you an idea of how difficult it is to get good Christian movies filmed and how hard it is to keep your values in Hollywood.

Had the opportunity to read this book before the official release. It was a wonderful book and one I plan on reading again. I loved how easy it was to read and the personal stories that helped illustrate the messages in each chapter. Reading this book felt like having a conversation instead of a dry/flat read. Would give a higher rating if it was an option. I hope you enjoy as much as I did!

Be a dreamed

I love David A R White and his bold story of how he chased his dream. It wasn't until he let God have control that his dream became better than he could have imagined. After having her another setback in my writing dream, I'm OK with letting God take it back into His capable hands. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is following their dream
