    INCREDIBLE BOOK

    This is an amazing book. The story will blow your mind, and it flows as if the author has told it a thousand times. There's also just the right amount of humor in there. I couldn't put it down. You're missing out if you haven't read this book.

    A review from a critical rationalist

    "From Folly" is an inspiring story of grace and redemption. I personally couldn't put the book down. The story really hit home for me because of it's honest message about growing up privileged and being expected to succeed. But there's more to it than that-- I think a lot of people will relate because Matt's testimony covers a wide range of issues from having a father die to partying and experimenting with drugs. Matt's sensitive, reliable voice creates a fantastic foray from which his testimony explodes into reality. I would recommend this book to anyone because it's a well written cliff-hanger, but it's also a positive example of an intellectual man of faith, at once sophisticated and raw. The bravery it would take to write this unflattering story and bare it all for God's glory is remarkable.

    Excellent story

    Great read. I was hooked from early on. If you haven't read it, take the time, it truly is time well spent. If you have someone in your life who is searching or might be struggling in their faith, I highly recommend this book.
