Let me begin by saying that I would love to give this book all five stars. I say that not because of anything to do with the book itself. The reason is that this author lives in Clemson, South Carolina, which is near my old home area of Starr and Iva, South Carolina and the Flat Rock Community.

Maybe I am not the brightest bulb in the string of lights, but I had a very hard time trying to ascertain what this Collier was trying to say.

Reading this book seems very much like being inside the mind

This is a fantastic book for anyone struggling to find meaning in a spiritual dry spell. Just because God may not be speaking directly to you, it doesn't mean He doesn't exist.

This book is refreshingly honest and well-written. The author is very open about his own struggles, which adds to the impact of his message. It's a wonderful change from the prevalent religious self-help books, and while it doesn't offer easy answers, it does offer challenging biblical principles. This is a must-read for those of us who struggle with the desire to be in control of our own life rather than truly surrendering to whatever God has for us.
