Face to Face with God by Jim Maxim is the story of one man's life-changing encounter with God. Jim was living life on his terms and partying every chance he got, drinking, doing drugs and living on the wild side. One night while driving drunk, he got into a terrible car accident that nearly killed him and left him with over 300 stitches in his face. His mother, a lifelong Christian, got down on her knees after hearing of the accident and begged God to save him, to save his vision, his life, and his soul. While unconscious, Jim had a vision of the two demons that had control of his life: alcohol and drugs, and asked Jesus to save him from them. The Jim who woke up was not the same Jim who was in the accident; his first words to his mother were of his salvation. While his family rejoiced, his friends insisted that he was just confused after the accident, but Jim never wavered from his new life. The story follows him through the Marines and into his married life. Maxim is a man on fire for the Lord, and he wants to share the joy and peace he has experienced with readers. Unfortunately Maxim is unsure if his audience is new/non-believers or more established Christians, and so the voice bounces from encouraging people to accept Jesus as their personal Savior to encouraging people to help others find Jesus for themselves. He includes the salvation prayer at least five times, which can cause readers to begin to skim. Maxim has a powerful story, not just of his initial salvation, but of the people with whom he has shared the Gospel, but the book is uneven in tone. Maxim is completely sincere and honest in his love for God, and that will help readers make it over the rough spots.
