Not a quick read, but one that challenges my attitudes and belief structure in a good way. This book makes me want to be a better person and Christian. It makes me examine my faith in a practical way. We're not talking "tea party" fanaticism here; we're talking about living life with the realization that whatever I do or say, or don't do or say, can have a profound affect on those around me. This book is about real people, who are nothing special in their own minds, but who leave a legacy of the true meaning of loving your neighbor just by living their lives with an awareness of the needs of those around them.

Sadly, I stalled out and couldn't read the last couple of chapters. I got the gist of it and am more knowledgable as a result, but just couldn't pick it up to read the last two. This isn't normal for me, I usually will finish a book even if I have to skim the pages to get to the end, but for some reason I just never found the time to pick it back up and am on to other books that are holding my interest more at this point.
