Clear Winter Nights
The tag line at the bottom of the cover says "Theology in Story". That is an apt description for this small but powerful book. A young man, Chris Walker, has doubts about his faith and struggles to really know truth. He spends a weekend with his grandfather who helps him worth through his struggles. Together they discuss more than just his struggles but the deeper truths. The book weaves theology into story seamlessly and wonderfully.
Some may be quick to compare this book with The Shack. I would not. This book is more realistic and relate-able whereas The Shack was more fictitious and fantasy. Clear Winter Nights delves into truths without getting other-worldly.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. For more inforamation, you can check out the author's website.
