This page-turner is beautiful; it's painful; it's shameful; it's faithful; it's real. Whatever your views are on faith and the afterlife, if you've ever felt like you were in a fog and needed hope, this book will wake you up.

His ability to leave his former life behind in order to embrace a different reality will inspire even the skeptics to pause. If you ever need a reminder that anything is possible, this is it.
