I just finished this great book written by John Moelker that tells of God's providence and grace. An especially wonderful book for a new or struggling Christian but it is easily relatable to any Christian in any stage of life. I found myself growing in spirit and knowledge as I read it. Thanks John!

Totally blown away

When I first chose this book, I thought it was going to something different like a pilgrim's progress type story. I was unable to stop reading as God spoke to my heart and all I could do was think of my family, my kids. I definitely want to share this book and I pray all who read it have an encounter with the loving God presented here. Great work writing this book!!!!

Very touching book from first time author. Quick read and great presentation of the Gospel message.

A page-turning coming of age tale that captures well the awkward parent-child dynamic many have faced. Set in Toronto, it has a modern, tech based Canadiana vibe that I found very appealing. The workplace romance had me needing to know the end. Highly recommended.

This first-time author delivers an engaging read, with realistic dialogue, humour and a worthy message. I appreciated that the metaphor of combat continued in the story even after Eli becomes a true believer because it leaves space for real emotion besides just joy in the Christian life.
