Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the vein of Merle's Door and Marley and Me, this collection of nonfiction stories by Christian authors puts the reader on a leash and walks her on the path between God and the four-legged beasts that share the letters of his name (in English). Some of the stories make the link through Bible verses, while others are more oblique, with no direct religious references. Some of the authors are better writers, offering real insight into the spiritual relationship between dogs and their people, while others rely more on cliché, making their contributions feel hackneyed. Still, there is something for every Christian reader here: pastors will find fodder for sermons, and laypeople will find their religious worldview reflected and perhaps strengthened. Pictures of the dogs featured in some of the stories add to the connection between readers and the dogs, but scattered informational boxes of doggie facts are distracting and unlikely to be news to anyone who has ever had a dog. A sweet book, good for the Christian dog lover. (June)

    Wonderful Book!!

    This book is for any dog lover out there. Such endearing stories and as a dog owner I can relate to some of these stories. I love my dog so much and she is a big part of the family. Some of these stories had me in tears.

    good but not great

    less than I expected but O.K. as far as it went. It was mostly the memories of someone who obviously loved their dog.
