This book was beyond the normal realm of life, amazing, and true to the character of God. It is Christian fiction (that is a novel with fictional characters), at it's best. I don't think we as Christians have touched the possibilities that God offers in this life probably because we are too afraid of going off the deep end into some kind of circus performing stance. As for me I have to remember that God is in control, He is no respector of persons, and He is unlimited and all powerful. I enjoyed every page of this book!

This is the second of the Caleb books, and Caleb is 25 years old now in the deserts of Ethiopia. He and his parents have rebuilt the monastery where he grew up as a child. They live there together and minister to a leper colony, and even though Caleb still believes, he has lost his zeal and fire for Christ. This book, though fictional, explores the need for childlike faith, for trusting when we can't see the road ahead, for joyous dancing and spending time in the presence of God, all the things that we veer away from after the newness of our salvation starts to wear off. I would say that I'm not sure that the turn of events in the book are totally biblically correct as they pertain to end time prophecy, however, there are many trains of thought regarding that. And a fictional book is just that, fiction. The book blessed me and brought about self examination about my walk with the Savior.
