Welcome!  Today’s post is the next installment of Book Beginnings which is a great link-up hosted by Rose City Reader.  If you love books, hop on over and check it out!

My book today is God’s Favorite Place on Earth by Frank Viola and the first line is this:

“In every generation, Christians face the same challenges-namely doubt, discouragement, fear, guilt, division, rejection, and the struggle against consumerism and complacency.”

I cannot even begin to describe how much I was blessed by this book.  I found myself nodding my head and thinking how much sense it all made.  The author tells the story of Lazarus, Mary & Martha through Lazarus’ eyes and the storytelling is spot-on.  I devoured this book and was sad when it ended.  Each chapter of the book has a narrative, Scripture to back up his narrative and then what I would call “life lessons” to go along with it. 

This is one book that I am passing around to my friends and co-workers because I think everyone deserves the chance to read it.  I hope you do and are blessed by it as much as I was.
