    No Wonder this book is Successful!

    I started this book during my weekly hour of adoration with the Blessed Eucharist. I found myself reading the book much more enthusiastically than I had planned. I also realized that I was answering the questions as if they were being asked to me. That caused me to reflect and connect God to my daily life through small things as well as great things. I realized many things about myself, my life, and how God has been with me through it all. I also found that my life had become more peaceful since I started adoration. I recommend this book to any Catholic. In fact, I am purchasing it for a friend of mine. Be prepared for some uplifting and thought provoking stories, and awe-inspiring realizations of the Eucharist and it's connections to your life.

    A Wonder of an Inspiring Book

    I found this book to be a real eye-opener about Eucharistic Adoration. Dave Pearson makes you feel like you¿re sitting right there beside him and being amazed at the powerful stories of each of these people at the moment they¿re telling them. Each of the men and women have such fascinating, such amazing, and yet such straightforward stories about how their lives were transformed by spending time with Jesus in Eucharistic adoration in church. These are real people and Pearson goes right to the heart of what they¿re saying to us readers. The good examples include the way people converted from no real beliefs, or from other faiths, by the power of the Eucharistic Jesus. How their lives were strengthened, how they were able to bear up under struggles that would flatten many people. And how happy and peaceful their lives are because of it. Pearson puts this book together in a very readable style. The way he captures each person¿s story and how his or her life has been immeasurably enriched because of Eucharistic adoration becomes a real inspiration for the reader. There are so many good examples of faith and real unshakable hope in these memorable pages that some of them can¿t help but touch and encourage any reader. By their personal examples, these people really help convince a reader that Jesus is really and fully alive and present in the Eucharist. Ultimately, I think this book will even inspire readers to try Eucharistic adoration and see how their own lives can be and will be transformed. I highly recommend it. It would also make a great gift to someone who may be struggling in his or her life and needs to know of the major help they can receive through Eucharistic adoration.

    Read it - It has the power to change your life!

    A truly moving and inspiring book. David Pearson¿s use of everyday ¿real world¿ people to show the power and life changing effects of Eucharistic Adoration brought great life and meaning to this novel. Though I possess a strong faith in God, this book made me reflect on my own relationship with Christ. It gave me a beautiful vehicle (Eucharistic Adoration), through which I could not only experience Jesus Christ¿s holy presence, but also build a stronger connection with God. Whether you consider yourself deeply religious, ¿some what¿ religious, or ¿lost¿ with respect to religion, I would highly recommend this book. Reading the testimonials of the men and women interviewed and witnessing the life changing power of Eucharistic Adoration will help you find a deeper calling. I would love to read more by David Pearson. There is a real sincerity and openness in this author¿s writing. There is a real sense that he is writing from his heart, and as a reader, that means a lot.
