Editorial Reviews

Review

The focus is on the simple, everyday questions of faith that are often neglected during the church service, but that are important in the lives of the faithful . . . [Pluto’s] appeal in this book comes from the fact that he is one of us: an average guy who works a steady job, has a wife and tries to be good person. Faith is a touchy subject, but Pluto writes like a friend, making the book as accessible as it is powerful . . . for friends and family of any denomination. (Lauren Burkhart Akron Life Magazine 2005-12-05)

Pluto’s take on things is down-to-earth, as befits his other persona as sportswriter, without being preachy or boring. (Laura Kennelly Morning Journal 2005-12-18)

[Pluto] takes what is preached on Sundays and moves it into the family room, where friends are gathered around talking and sipping coffee . . . Pluto succeeds in bringing faith into the every day act of living. And while he writes, Pluto admits he doesn’t know all the answers . . . This makes him incredibly human. Some chapters reaffirmed what I already knew about faith. Others explored a topic in new ways. My one complaint about the book was its length. It needs to be longer. (April Helms Maple Heights Press 2005-12-15)

Format: Hardcover
Terry Pluto is the real deal. "Faith and You" is a reflection of his heart for God and the ability He's given him to write a story that makes a point. I appreciate the simplicity with which Terry writes about issues that are so significant. Each essay deals with and describes God-honoring faith "where the rubber meets the road." From how loudly our actions reveal the condition of our hearts to what it means to know and love God 24/7 to being willing to have our own agenda set aside for the sake of someone else, this book helps me want to honor God by experiencing and expressing true Christianity in a meaningful and positive way.

I highly recommend you get this book, reflect upon what you read and ask God to help you apply it to your life. Then share it with others you know who need to know faith is for them and that they, too, can know God for who He is the way He wants in the here and now. Reading "Faith and You" helped me understand in a fresh way that knowing God isn't weird, it's wonderful!

This book hit the nail on the head for me in more than a few ways. I am not a religious person. In fact, you could say I have some religious issues, but if you believe in God despite having issues with the human side of religion, this book is for you. Mr. Pluto discusses human frailties and weaknesses, some of his own difficulties in life and how Jesus dealt with the same issues during his time on earth. Definitely recommended reading.
