A story for… Everyone.

Have you ever read a story that you couldn’t help but tell other people about?  I read a lot and find often as I’m reading I want to recommend a chapter or illustration to a particular person that I think will find compelling or encouraging.  On a few, very rare occasions I read a book that gets me so excited that I tell EVERYONE, “you gotta read… “!  The last time was two years ago when I read, “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand.

Here is an article that I can’t stop thinking about or recommending to people.  In the last week I’ve emailed, printed it out, tweeted it and talked about it a ton – both with christians and people who want nothing to do with Jesus.  It’s a profound story.

Here is a short version:  http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2013/january-february/my-train-wreck-conversion.html?paging=off

Here is a video interview:  http://www.patheos.com/blogs/thoughtlife/2013/01/gods-amazing-grace-from-lesbian-professor-to-presbyterian-mother/

Here is a book review and interview:  http://thegospelcoalition.org/themelios/review/unlikely_convert   and two others here:  http://www.crosswalk.com/blogs/dr-ray-pritchard/the-best-book-ive-read-this-year.html   http://www.ipcsav.org/article/false-identity/

I’d love to hear what you think after you read it.
