Book Description

My life stunk. I had never gotten a break. If it could go wrong, it had gone wrong. I was on the fast track to nowhere... Then I met Al. As one man approaches fifty, he takes a look back at the years riddled with disappointment, heartache, unfulfilled dreams, and hopelessness. He's a prisoner to his own existence, allowing fear and his victim mentality to keep him from pursuing the life he's always wanted. But just when it seems that each day is the same monotonous routine, he meets Al and has an unexpected encounter that will turn his life upside down. When Al offers him The Key to his mansion, this man must decide if it's a risk worth taking. Is it really free, or are there strings attached to this seemingly too-good-to-be-true offer? Who is this mysterious Al? What secrets does his house hold, and why is he trying to give it away? In his new book, The Key, John W. Turner takes readers on tour of this extraordinary home, using this allegory of the Father's house to reveal the invitation extended to each and every person. Readers will be spellbound as they too explore the rooms of the mansion, discovering the reality of God's character and the blessings he wants to bestow, if we allow him.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don the Baptist November 12, 2014
Format:Perfect Paperback
By Don the Baptist

Above the bar-code on the back cover of John W. Turner’s work entitled The Key, one finds that it is indexed/catalogued under three specific genres: Religion, Christianity, and General. Therefore, as the genre “General” means nothing, this review will focus on the two remaining categories – Religion and Christianity – as these are my areas of expertise.

Also on the back cover, one learns that the contents of the book are an allegory. Webster’s Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language (1996, Gramercy Books) defines an allegory as “a representation of an abstract or spiritual meaning through concrete or material forms; figurative treatment of one subject under the guise of another.”

With these points in mind, I offer the following observations.

First, in John’s work, religion is repeatedly viewed in a negative light; this is due – likely – to John Turner’s never having read the textbook on religion, aka, The Bible (Note, in all book reviews posted by Don the Baptist, the designation “Bible” refers to the English Bible also known as The Authorized Version, The AV1611, The King James Version, etc. ). Therein, James 1:26-27 reads, “If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Therefore, pure “religion” means three things, 1) to keep one’s tongue under control, 2) to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and 3) to not become tainted by the world.
