Wrapped around the events of the everyday there are philosophical, psychological and supernatural elements that touch the actions and thoughts of the narrator and the journey he takes you on.
This is labelled a 'Christian' book, but this understates its breadth and depth. There are dilemmas, lessons and morals for both the spiritually and secularly minded people within these pages. This is without a single preachy word, it's a fable not a sermon.
From the moment you pick this book up, you are on a journey, carried by the narrator's voice, through the twists and turns, pubs and gardens, darkness and the light. Once started, it is hard to put the book down, no matter where the journey takes you.
I think that almost anyone could identify with this book and I would encourage anyone and everyone to read it.

The author seemed pretty good at making a broken romance seem like spiritual warfare. At one point in the book, he said that God approved of him going out and getting drunk with an ex girl friend. He claims he received all kinds of words of knowledge from God. I believe he has a big imagination. I don't think God would give someone who lives the lifestyle he lives all that revelation. Also except for the very beginning of the book, the whole book centered around the relationship he had with a girl. It seemed pretty self centered. Also, in 2 places in the book, he listed the website addresses of 2 pornographic websites, which I thought was really strange. Why would a sincere Christian do that? I would be cautious reading this book.
