About the Author

The author of two online devotion sites, Journeys through Faith and As a Matter of Faith, Wyatt McIntyre writes of steadfast devotion, trust in God and the personal experiences that help to build a transcending faith. Weaving together stories from his own life and from a host of other sources, he offers a unique Scriptural view of the world around us. In his first full theological work, Coping through Christianity: Strengthening the Wounded Mind and Broken Spirit Through God's Love, he tackles problems such as suicide, depression, anxiety, feelings of failure and abuse. The book has been called "a faithful, scripturally informed treatment of coping with thoughts of suicide." For more of Wyatt's works visit www.asamatteroffaith.com or www.wyattmcintyre.com

More About the Author

Born in Valleyview Alberta and currently residing in Woodridge Illinois, as an amateur woodworker, Wyatt McIntyre sees crafting a story in the same way he carves. Starting with a blank and rough surface, each word, each sentence and line is meant to express a vision that slowly turns the original material into a finished work of beauty. Along with The Last Dance, his first novel, Wyatt is also the author of the theological work, Coping Through Christianity: Strengthening the Wounded Heart and Broken Spirit through God's Love.

This book is not for everyone. It's not intended to be. There are times in the text where it almost feels as though it's written for ministers looking for answers on how to help their congregations through troubled times. However, the truth is that this book is written for anyone looking for help through troubled times, whether its for themselves or for a friend. This, admittedly dense, tome of Biblical exposition does a rather effective job of showing the more relatable side of Christ, the side that can often be overlooked amidst the book burnings and funeral picketings.

And that's where this book really shines, in that it reminds people that Jesus/God is not a harsh dictator, he is not one who believes we all deserve death. Throughout his review of the Bible's relation to topics such as depression, abuse, suicide, and many others, McIntyre showcases God's true nature, that of a loving father whose only hope is to bring us home with him.

McIntyre may get a little long-winded at time, coming off more sermon-esque than personable, but in the end he does a great job of comprehensively covering each topic he focuses on in this book, making sure to leave no stone unturned, which is important when discussing such apologetics.

This book is a must read if you have any interest in the topic, and I'd highly suggest it for anyone of faith who is having trouble in life and questioning where they fit in God's world.

I find it hard to say much more about this book without getting into debates about the actual subject matter within. Needless to say, it's a book that will make you think, if you're one to think about God.
