This spring, I loaded up on books to read for the summer (you might remember my Book Sale post). Well, I am happy to say, I've read them all, but one AND I read two others not on my list. As a writer, I wanted to learn what I could from the author on story, content, delivery, etc.
Book: Jesus Freaks Vol. II
Author: dc Talk
What I learned: True stories motivate people into action. Truth resonates with readers.
What I liked: I love all the Jesus Freaks books. This is probably the fifth one I've read. I love the stories of people that take a stand for Jesus (past and present). I also liked the last part of the book that gives you practical ways that you can take a stand. One page is also like a covenant that you can make with God.
Recommend? Yes! Since this book is a collection of short, independent stories, it is a good read if you only have a few minutes here and there...or in my case, I was on vacation and read the entire book in 4 days (I love vacations).
