God's love is eternal.
Amazon Customer
In Mooney's book God is certainly out of the box and I have to say that as far as Christian fiction goes its such a creative and refreshing read.
Amazon Customer
This is a great reminder that God loves, and that he loves us more than Himself.

I read this book when I was feeling desperate, alone & really not sure about who God is anymore or if he really even loves me. Within the first few chapters I was delighted to find myself starting to remember who He is! God is not judging or condemning me for my stupid mistakes or bad choices! That God doesn't mind me asking questions, no matter how difficult, inappropriate or uncomfortable they may seem to others, in fact I love how Mick Mooney shows God is not offended by nor afraid of our questions, something I struggled with for a long time and something I easily forget. But the book doesn't end there, that is only the beginning of a beautiful journey of Gods amazing love & grace to us! This book has been written in a way that has made seeing God for who He really is, & who we really are in Him so simple, fun to read & a truly enjoyable experience! Even after a grace awakening I've found it so easy to get entangled back into religions mindsets, this book has helped add to my freedom & walk with God and has been like a breath of fresh air in a crowed space!

Having grown up in the post-modern era, this book hit me right in the center of my soul. Years of ministry experience, a Bible College degree and even my current studies have not touched me the way that this novel has. In this truly prophetic, intense, passionate and dangerous love story, Mick Mooney manages to portray and explain facets of the heart of God that most people miss - and it even intelligently explains WHY most people miss it. This novel changed my relationship with God forever. This is a MUST read.

In typical Mick Mooney style, God's Grammar presents the story of Sam. Sam could be perceived as a simple messed up individual. But he has a past, a present, and a future. He is not a mistake, but the result of some pretty difficult situations. He has made more than his share of mistakes, but continues to struggle to make sense of it all. We get to share in his inner and outer experiences as he struggles with the tough questions. As he asks the questions we all ask. There are no easy answers. Yet the answer is simple if we could just learn to live into it.

A great story that is consistent with the message of love that Mick has been sharing through his cartoons, blog, and other books for years. I'll be recommendimg this book to many.

God's Grammar is a novel. I am not the biggest fan of Christian novels, and as such have read very few of them. The reason why I don't like them is because they tend to be overly fluffy and Christianese. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was not the case with Mick's novel.

God's Grammar is a short look into the life of a young man who wakes up to find God in his living room, waiting to give him some grammar lessons. And by grammar lessons you really know I mean rock his world, as is God's nature...

The thing I liked most about the book, without giving any spoilers away, is the fact that Mick made it real. The situations and life experiences described in this book do not pull any punches. It is brutally honest, well delivered and also very funny!

The book reminded me a lot of The Shack, as it is also about a man meeting with God in an unsuspected way and then dealing with life's big questions, emotions and other associated feelings. Mick also manages to interweave Biblical truths in very awesome ways, connecting the dots of the Gospel message and also making it personal for each person.

He brilliantly portrays and personifies the inward struggle we all face in our conscience sifting through the mix of all the condemning and fear inducing thoughts implanted by others, our own thoughts and conclusions and of course God's words.

The most memorable part of this book for me was the ending, and boy was it good! I have not cried whilst reading a book in many a long year. Yes, I am Cornel and I cry. Deal with it. Mick managed to capture the fullness of the cross in a way that will bring a deeper revelation of it to many if not all who read it. It sure got me!

Overall a very well written novel, with amazing imagery and gripping characters that will draw you into the pages and make the gospel come alive in a whole new way!

Well done Mick!

For those of us who have grown up with the postmodern, media culture surrounding us, the topic of identity, purpose, and religion often blend into a debate that most prefer to avoid. But, every person, regardless of specific experiences, has had emotional pain that seems to have no answer, no reason. It sure seems like there should be some answers to these feelings, some brand of logic to explain it all, right? And what about God anyway?

This book jumps to the heart of the issue with the story of Sam. While he is a clever and fun-loving young man, he lives a life that all of us can identify with, a troubled one. Embedded in his story is the story of humanity and the gritty realities we most often try to escape. Yet, love heals all wounds and breathes boundless joy into our lives. How can this be?

With inspiration, humor, and creativity, Mick Mooney's novel God's Grammar touches the heart in a profound way and with an unforgettable conclusion.

When I picked up God's Grammar, I honestly thought "I hope this isn't going to be another one of those corny Christian novels". You know, the ones that are trying to convey a message, but just come off as shallow and fake. Well, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

The main character, Sam, has a meeting with God and therein begins a lesson on grammar. Really, the story is a journey in self-discovery and God-discovery, and finding you really can't separate the two. It is a story of loss and redemption. A story familiar to most of us.

The characters in the story are real and their life-experiences believable. Mick does a great job describing God's character and how God relates to us. It turns out that God's grammar is not so much about words themselves, but the experience and life those words describe. I was blown away by the love of God all over again... love unending and all-encompassing!

I really enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it.
