This is truly wonderful and insightful. Specially if the reader/listener is interested in walking with God and not so interested in fixing systems. Answers excellent questions with direction into God and not into the 'fix'. I found it very good, and have recommended it and given it as gifts. I thank God and the authors for a timely sound.

A couple years ago I read a book called "The Shack" and it really made an impression on me but it was only a story, a good one with some truth presented in a new way. A little over a year ago I had the blessing of experiencing a Walk to Emmaus during a very critical time in my life. A couple of months ago, I don't even remember how, I got this book on my radar. With this month's Audible.com credit I purchased the audio book and have listened to the entire book in the past 24-hours. This book has resonated with me at my core and to a level that in all honesty even scares me a little bit, as I am once again wondering - where am I being led?
At the same time I am not holding on to any sort of worry about it. The last 18 months, no the last almost 37 years continues to teach me I don't have to worry about tomorrow, it will get here when it is time and my experience of now is what will prepare me for it when it does.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to all. If you don't want to go to church or even if you do. This book won't give you an answer but it may allow you to see where you might want to make your next step along your journey.

In one sense this book is great because the story telling gets your focus back on the Lord instead of all our focus on our churches. So this book is great for all believers in that sense. However what I didn't like about the book was its non biblical approach to church. Yes I could relate to the church criticisms 100% but the book leaves you with a sense that doing faith alone is a good thing and doing church is negative. The bible does not encourage doing faith alone but in community with elders, leaders and those whom God appoints over you. Yes the church is an institution of sorts but we need the discipline of church to encourage us in our daily walk with God. I like some aspects of this book - having been feeling less than disappointed with churches myself, however, I do not believe it is wise to give up on church and go it alone. Isolation is the devils playground. Lastly, there were no bible references to speak of in this book. It all came down to what this fictitious man called John was saying. That is dangerous. In these deceptive days we need to belong to solid biblical churches as we spur each other on in the faith.
