The search for personal joy that's found within fulfilling relationships is one of history's continuing sagas. For some people obtaining such a relationship becomes a life-long pursuit. For others it is less of a goal and more of a by-line to each one's individual story. In either case a fundamental question remains: Do these relationships simply fall into place, or is there a guiding force that can draw the people together? HOLES IN THEIR HEARTS' author John Wallace challenges the reader to avoid being too quick with an answer to that question until all of the individual characters in this fast-paced story have been examined.
Key to how one examines the characters clearly becomes the underlying second story within HOLES IN THEIR HEARTS. One method of examination could be based upon the viewpoint that life is nothing more than a series of happenstances that hold neither pattern nor direction. An opposing view might hold that everything is already dictated for humans with no way to avoid one's destiny. Still another method would fall somewhere in between by following more closely to the saying, 'People define coincidence as either being or not being a miracle in which God chooses to remain anonymous'.
As the author puts it, "People form opinions and make choices based on their perspective of life, one that has been shaped by their own unique experiences. That perspective sets the table for our making decisions from among all of the life options we face every day. Decisions as mundane as what we're going to eat or as important as what we're willing to die for are all made based upon an individual's perspective. In the case of this book the reader has the option to select whichever lens he or she chooses to use when viewing the characters because the circumstances are different for each of them.
"More important than using whichever method one chooses to examine the characters is whether your current perspective guides you to your desired eternal relationship. That's because how one answers life's ultimate question can truly make yours a joy-filled life for not just today, but forever."
