I first read this book last fall for a book group my friend and I were doing. It is an amazing book. The author uses an allegory to give insights into several scripture stories. He presents ideas that I hadn't ever thought of before and he uses the stories to show how Christ can help us through our difficult times. I loved the book so much that I am now rereading it and marking it up in the margins. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a way to find peace in their life. It is a must read.
