Book Review

Open: Get Ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime
by David Gregory
2016 Tyndale

Reviewed by Diane Busch

Emma, is a single twenty-something woman who is a bit lonely and sad following a break up from her boyfriend. She honestly shares her feelings and doubts about her spirituality and faith.  She's not sure what direction to take next in her life. 

Through a series of open doors, she finds herself with Jesus as he is doing his ministry on earth. She witnesses first hand some of the events that are in the Gospels and talks with Jesus about what she sees and experiences.  She learns many lessons that she can apply to her own life, such as forgiveness, love, patience, surrender, obedience, and thanksgiving.  Ultimately she learns that the main point is a person - Jesus. These are all lessons we can learn from as well and apply to our lives. 

This book, although written for anyone, may appeal more to young women, since it is written in the first person narrative of a twenty-something female.  

A copy of this book was provided by Tyndale for review purposes.
