This then begins Mack’s journey to rediscover his relationship with God, and deal with the “Great Sadness”.
This is such a powerful book, that I was fighting back tears throughout. By the time I was done reading, I felt like I had read not just a book of fiction, but the ultimate book on the philopshophy of mans’ life with God. This is a touching tale! The book was so good, that I burned through all 248 pgs in less than 24 hours! The book didn’t seem like my cup of tea at first, but once I sat down yesterday and started to read, I was hooked.
