I began reading this book when I was a freshmen in college. One of my athletic trainers introduced it to me, but because I wasn’t an avid reader back then, I never finished it. It was so moving though that I told myself one day I would. I even made a conscious effort to bring it all the way to California from Alabama knowing that I would one day get through it. So here I am about five years later. The reason I added this book to the list is because the stories the author told still stick with me to this day, and I have retold them on numerous occasions. They have changed the way I’ve looked at Christianity, so hopefully as I finish it this time around I encounter more of those life changing stories so that I can share them whenever I get the chance.
