    Purchased as a gift for my husband(who is a huge fan of all things Andy Griffith!). He loves it, uses it, plans to share with Sunday school class. I also have enjoyed reading it. Very nice gift for anyone who likes the simple things in life, and has fond memories of the show.

    Very good for short devotionals for groups or meetings. Lends itself to discussion, if wanted. Really looking forward to using it more. Also enjoyable for personal use!

    It's a good book about a good TV program that aired in a good time. There are lots of good stories about basically good people learning some good lessons to live by. I grew up during the Mayberry RFD/Andy Griffith Show era. I think I've seen nearly every episode. It was a good program.Fann stirred up ltos of memories in recounting many episodes of the TV program. Using various characters and situations, he draws analogies and lessons for life and how to live a good, decent, moral life. This is not a bad book.However, I missed the gospel in The Way Back To Mayberry. God is spoken of (more in terms of His desire for us to live a good life); Christ is mentioned (more in terms of the teachings for living), but the fact of Christ's coming to die for the sins of man so we might live a life pleasing to God is sadly almost entirely missing. Perhaps it was implied; but it's troubling to only imply the gospel when stressing the desirability of living a simple and good life back in Mayberry. A mature Christian will find this of some sentimental value, but too shallow for any real impact. A young Christian might enjoy the simplicity portrayed, giving a goal to shoot for, but no real help in how to actually live this way other than to "go back to Mayberry." I would even consider it a dangerous book in the hands of unbelievers. They are going to be told "God smiles on Mayberry. Live like they did on a TV show and you'll be okay in My eyes." They will not be told, even in the midst of what are clearly decent moral principles you need to repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.I have a difficult time recommending this book for serious readers. If you just want a fond trip down memory lane, however, read and enjoy. It does a good job of that.
