Look! Look carefully at the cover of the book! What do you see? Serenity? Serenity of mind? Or maybe pleasure? A full understanding of yourself and the world?

Personally, I see a man who has found a clue, he is calm and he is balanced. He's found himself! Can you say that about yourself? And if you're holding this book, you want to know a secret too, don't you? And it's the right thing to do!

After reading this book, I want to be, to be better. To be another little ray of light and kindness and un

The spiritual life enlightener!
For so many years, I have been reading Religion and Spirituality books to increase my knowledge about God and gain more spiritual belief. However, some of the books I come through appear to be the same wine in different bottles, just the ordinary stories revolving around the internet. When I came over, "Wanted," I did not know what to expect, but after reading the book, I felt that I had just acquired what I had always been missing all this time. The book provides

Faith is a gift, some people are born with it, some will find it someday. But it is our fate that either we find it or not. The path of self healing starts with belief. The best knowledge I gained from this book is how faith can heal any mind, whether it is torn or not. "Wanted" is a book of enlightenment. It is the torchbearer of hope and love. Ellis has penned down an amazing testimony of his life. His transformation is something that cannot be described through words. He had gone through the ...more

After my girlfriend's words: "You just have to read it and share your thoughts with me!" ... . So we discussed the book all evening. I love these moments. And most interestingly, we made a list of our acquaintances who are obliged to read this.
Do you, my friend, have these thoughts when you know what to say? No, even shouting to everyone? Guys, there's a solution, it's here and just for you! Here I saw kindness, support, hope! Here I saw the Light!

Fantastic! I just finished reading. And If you are finding yourself in the lost world or everything around you is hopeless then this book is for you. I read many ways of salvation to family reconciliation and spiritual healing. People who were in a confusing way to know God’s great power shared their experiences and stories about the truth of the existence of that mighty power.

Some heart touching stories have made me feel positive and motivational energy around me. My favorite part where the wri

The world can be a cruel place. Many a time, you may feel unwanted, of no importance and value in the world. We deal with mental warfare and we are in constant need of peace. Believe it or not, many people are lonesome even in the presence of friends and family. This book is for anyone going through a time when you feel unwanted.

The book contains inspirational testimonies that are simple and well narrated. The author writes about the importance of being in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Back

Wanted is a fantastic follow-up book to Ellis's autobiography The Potter and the Clay. Wanted deals with an ever-increasing epidemic of unnatural human suffering, namely people who've had their foundation pulled out from beneath them through addictions, rejection, divorce, abuse, abandonment, or suicide. Ordinary people who've been overcome by a title wave of destructive emotions, and provides a different way of viewing trauma through the eyes of perspective for those who honestly believe they a ...more
I will probably be reading and rereading this book for the rest of my life...

At the sake of sounding arrogant or prideful, (God forbid), I believe this book was written just for me... That it exists because I exist. That it exists because I (and others like me), so desperately need it.

Written by a man who genuinely gets it, who sincerely has a servant's heart, a man who wants to help others to find and know that we are truly "wanted" by the Creator of the Universe...

A must read book

Wanted is an inspirational book written by Ellis Lucas about the process of transformation that we as human beings have to go through in order to overcome life challenges. This book inspires its readers to see the value of spending time with Jesus Christ, the all loving savior. Wanted is a book bearing the message that no one is unwanted before God’s eyes. The author goes into detail explaining how graceful Jesus Christ was in the plan of salvation by accepting to be crucified on

After my scare with my heart, I think I am slowly returning to normal although I am still extremely ill. I know, my life must go on. On a serious note, I took the downtime to get much-needed rest and spent most of the weekend in bed reading. When I am ill, it doesn't mean I sleep and I can only watch so much television. This last weekend had me focusing on my faith. I questioned, "How can I be so sick?" I didn't want to move and then you know how your mind starts to question everything -- even G ...more

In Ellis's second book, he delves deeply into his profound faith and explains to the reader why he has had such remarkable turn around in his amazing life. He pulls no punches and just tells it all to us straight! I found this book refreshing!

What to expect

80% Bible verses
15% 'by the way, buy the other book I wrote'
5% 'poor life choices are the devil's fault'

Overall, nothing I haven't heard from the homeless men on the street corners before (although, I don't believe any of them have asked me to buy their previous rants).

There's nothing new or particularly inspiring here.

I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway.
