    A Must Read Along with the Bible :)

    I would recommend this book to any Christian or person Seeking Christ. Alan uses scripture to explain the gospel like I have never heard. This book along with the scripture he quotes is a total life and eternity changer. Highly highly highly recommended. Yes, that is 3 highly recommended :) Seriously great book, worth reading multiple times and then read again after that.
