I am an agnostic, I have to say that upfront, but that does not make me avoid books about God, since it is a matter of interest, and the power of what faith can do for someone is undeniable.
Last month I reviewed the book Shadow of Serenity, that is targeted to Christian audiences, but is in escence a good novel. In this case, The Road Trip, by Jo Lynn Crozier is much more of a religious book than that one. Therefore its target much more specific even.
The story is simple: Liz, the main character is invited by God to do a Road Trip on a sidecar and travel through different places and learn in the process. God invites an ordinary woman to travel with him on a life-changing road trip. Along the way, they encounter fantastic beings, heavenly houses, and extraordinary communities that Liz could never have imagined. But this is no vacation. God has a lot to teach Liz, and behind all the whimsy is a deeper spiritual message with real-life applications. Buckle up and join God and Liz on the journey of a lifetime.
The metaphors are easy to read and understand, and the morals of the story could be extrapolated to just good raising in values.
Who do I recommend this book to?
Christian families that want to explain or want their children to read about values.
