When I selected this book I didn’t realize it was part of a series. . . Actually the last book of the series, as well as the spring-board for a new series. Although this was a good book, I think that this book would have meant more if I had read the rest of the series first. I was often lost trying to figure out why something was mentioned before realizing it was probably part of one of the other books.
Faith is a huge part of this book, but I can’t say that Salvation through Christ is, which is disappointing to me. The book does talk about leaning on Christ and praying with believing, but no information on how to ‘get saved’.
A quick read, with some unexpected twists. Not a favorite, but something that I was able to enjoy reading.
