This is the latest in a string of evangelical Christian books that tells us there is more to life, then reveals how to find it. Like others in the genre, the Ludys (When God Writes Your Love Story), who are full-time speakers, writers and musicians, first describe inauthentic Christianity, typified by those who excuse their sins or seek moral superiority over others. They then urge readers to leave all that behind in favor of extreme faith, the ultimate adventure, which requires losing faith in oneself and trusting God completely. Also true to formula, the book contains many anecdotes; unfortunately, most are too general to shed much light on the point at hand. Parts two and three stray somewhat from the norm, with practical suggestions for God seekers and a study guide for developing one's inner life. The Ludys emphasize confession of sin and offer a helpful list of questions for self-evaluation, but they fail to make explicit what constitutes sin. Nevertheless, seekers may benefit from the study guide, which recommends reading Christian biographies, setting goals in every area of life and developing good habits. In explaining its premise, this volume has little to offer; those looking for deeper faith would do well to skip to the practical sections.
