The book starts out with a major victory in Mark's life and goes very quickly to a major tragedy. The rest of the book is about a loving God reaching out to Mark through this process and helping him to heal and grow. Mark is very transparent in this account and shows us both the good and the bad that he goes through. Mark sums up the story best when towards the end of the book he answers a question that he posed about why 3 miracles. Here is a part of his answer: "Plain and simple. It took a certain three of those suckers to slap me upside the head and wake me up. Three to free me from the constraints of human logic. Three to lead me to a place where I don't need to witness miracle after miracle to believe. Three to change my life forever."
The only criticism that I can write about the book is not really a criticism. It is a matter of a style that some might find hard to follow. ( I did not have any problems with it, but then I liked "A Rose For Emily" when we studied it in both high school and college.) It is not written chronologically, instead each chapter is broken up in sections and each section is a jump in time. It is what I call a conversational style. It is like Mark was sitting down and just telling me the story. He would start with one important fact and then either go on to the next important thing or to go back and give me some background on what he had just said.
I believe that it is one of the best books that I have ever read and I highly recommend it for any and all to read.
Oh and there is one more thing that I think is important to add and comes as a note from the publisher in the very back of the book. They say this: "At the author's request, all proceeds from this book will go to Outreach For World Hope, benefiting the hungry in Central America and Haiti, as well as other charities."
My wife & I left our corporate jobs at the highest level of income we had every had and to semi-retired to enjoy life more and to get out of the day-to-day rat race. We are so happy we took this huge leap into the unknown and now we have our own business and we work together and have plenty of free time to enjoy travels, family, and just to be able to look up at the stars at night and know we can sleep in the next morning if we want to.
When I read Mark's book, I felt like I was there with him going through the pain he felt, and I got a better idea of how hard it is for entertainers to put on the "happy face" when they are going through hell. I felt so many different emotions, but the book made me fell alive because trials and tribulations is life -- its how we deal with them that makes us human.
Mark is one fine human being and we support him in his endeavors to make the world a better place! God bless you Mark!
