This book was interesting to read. It made me think about my thoughts and feelings on a few issues. Some of it I thought was nice in theory, but I can never see myself believing it even though I am a Christian. And, parts of the book I could totally relate to because I have had similar experiences. It is a book that is worth reading because it is well thought out and enjoyable. I would have definitely picked this book to read if it was at a library because it's artsy cover would have drawn me to it and I like to read books where I learn something. This book will teach you something if you let it.

This book started off well, with a story about his journey to God. It caught my attention and immediately drew me into the book and excited me about continuing to read I enjoyed his story and found it very relatable. Beyond the initial chapter my interest in the book waivered and I struggled through several parts. The author explained his point of view very clearly and did not state any of his opinions in a way as to make it fell like he was trying to force them on the reader. Though the book was well written, the inconsistency between the author's theories and the Bible made it difficult for me to follow. I did find some of his theories interesting and was especially inspired by Chapter 7, The Portrait of Christ. I like how the author points out that Christ can often be seen in the most unlikely people, I found it to be a very important reminder about how judgmental we can be at times. For me, reading this book was more about sorting the good from the not so good than it was being enlightened about a revolutionary insight into the scriptures.

This was a great book. It was easy-to-read and straightforward. The author clearly explains Christian and biblical messages without being too preachy. This is definitely a must read for anyone who needs to reaffirm his or her faith or anyone looking to become a Christian for the first time, but needs more information and advice.

I won this book from a LibraryThing giveawayThis is a great book. It takes you on a journey of spiritual growth. It brings up many issues and The Bibles answer to them. You won't be disappointed when you read this book.

It's such an eye opener book. The accounts of the author tickle the spirituality within me and motivates me to remember to offer everything to the Lord because He loves us all. The way Thomas Walker wrote the entire book was so simple but because of it, it was easier for me to relate to his stories. It is an interesting read for those who lost their paths and for those who want to straighten what they started.

Thomas H. Walker¿s book uses the idea that God¿s message is like a jigsaw puzzle; all the pieces will fit together to form God¿s love. In a logical way he goes through a series of scriptural concepts to show his point.I do not believe that this was necessarily an easy to understand book, despite the short length of it. I found myself only able to read a few pages at a time without getting bored; I was never really drawn in. While I believe that his basic message was good I felt as though he kind of jumped around and I didn¿t always understand the point that he was trying to make. There were chapters that I enjoyed and found well written. I liked chapter 7 where he talks about Christ being seen in the most unlikely people because that is a constant reminder that I need to stop judging others.As I came to the end of the book I read the chapter in which Walker tries to explain the Holocaust. I suppose it is an interesting theory, but I don¿t think that I necessarily agree with it. He says that because the Jewish people rejected Jesus they remain under the law. ¿And because of the pledge spoken at the trial, God was obligated by law to avenge His Son¿s blood.¿ (page 142)So when I read this book I saw some good in it as well as bad. Once I sorted through what I believed and didn¿t believe I found some good pieces throughout the book.I received this book for free from LibraryThing Member Giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

A question of faith *** One man’s journey illustrates how his own personal interpretation of Scripture, myths, and historical facts could lead readers to spiritual growth and support his philosophy of life and faith. Although this non-academic work is expected to open the hearts of readers to a Christian way of life, it is defeated by the many contradictions. For example, the author speaks of racism and “hatred [as] a seed sown by the evil one into the hearts of men” (Chapter 12) only to turn around and state that the Holocaust was God’s punishment and retaliation against the Jewish people for the death of Jesus (Chapter 19). Walker appears to support higher learning, yet comes across as anti-intellectual, at least where one would criticize the Bible and Scripture. This book also contains a list of citations.
