The Reason

It was more than a thunderstorm that hit a small town in Michigan.  It was an act of God.  But it was not a lightening bolt but a person by the name of Kenneth who really shocked the people of this town.  This man touches the lives of many people including a pastor and his family and friends.  They are never the same after spending time with Kenneth, and they want to know him, and Him, more.

As I started reading this book, another book quickly came to mind.  More than 20 years ago, a book with a similar storyline was published, Joshua, A Parable for Today.  Both books bring Jesus to life in a modern day setting, and both books inspire readers to not only have faith in Jesus but have a personal relationship with Him.

Since the storyline was not new, I was not that impressed with this book.  There are parts of the story which are overly descriptive, and other parts which do not give enough description.  Overall, it was a slow read with just enough drama to make it enjoyable enough.

Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
