The book being reviewed is “Finding Our Way Again” by Brian McLaren. This was a rough read for me because many times while reading it, I found my mind would wander off. The author brings forward many good points though out his book. If you are one who has strayed from your faith and you are trying to find your way back, then this might be a good book for you to read.
The main problem I had with the book was the author’s flowery imagery way of explaining his ideas. The point could have been said with less wording. If you stick with the book and keep reading then the points are there to be found. Scriptures are offered in the book to reinforce what the author is saying.
What I really liked was at the end of each chapter was a section labeled spiritual exercises. These exercises showed me how much I understood what was being said and if I needed to go back and reread. Also, at the end of the book is a study guide for each chapter to reinforce what you are reading.
The book does bring to home where you stand, where your relationship is spiritually and how to bring you closer to God. The whole series is amazing.
I received this book for free in exchange for 2 reviews.
