5.0 out of 5 stars The message in this book has far to great an impact to be missed., December 23, 2007
This review is from: Polishing God's Monuments: Pillars of Hope for Punishing Times (Paperback)
When Jim Andrew's daughter, Juli, was in college, she contracted mononucleosis. Although they didn't realize it at the time, this would be the first in a cascade of baffling, debilitating medical problems.

In Polishing God's Monuments, the author writes honestly of his daughter's struggles and how it impacted the entire family. Alternating between chapters describing Juli's heartbreaking struggles and theology, the author helps us to understand the importance of relying on God even when the trials seem overwhelming.

This book is not a collection of platitudes. This is an honest look at true suffering, and all the emotions and feelings of hopelessness that it sometimes entails. Mr. Andrews and his family have endured unimaginable trials, but yet emerged with their faith intact. His careful handling and application of the Bible is a reflection of the kind of wisdom that comes when faith is thoroughly tested.

Why many will appreciate the author's colorful, country metaphors, I found them at times to be distracting. But the message in this book has far to great an impact to be missed. This book will be a great help to those in the midst of trials. I will probably be buying extra copies to give away.
