A Novel by Wm Paul Young
Once again we have an interesting depiction of the Trinity but I was really taken by the breaking down of the ‘wilderness of his soul’ that the lead character experiences whilst in his coma. Certainly one to spark some lively discussions, Ruthless Tony Spencer rates success by the amount of real estate properties he owns. Charismatic when in need of information, or anything to augment success, he is ruled by the need to increase and maintain his capital. Divorcing and then remarrying his wife only to fully destroy her- physiologically, financially and legally- his only concern is to maintain the upper hand. Yet, there are moments when he succumbs to alcohol and remembers the faults in his actions, the things he has lost. With a second chance, he either has to make right the things he has done or give someone a chance at a better life. The strength of this novel is its ability to face up to the realities and tragedies of life; as a result, it could be a great book to lend a friend who has given up on faith… If you liked The Shack, you will love this book.
