Publisher's Description

A funny-but-touching tale about everything that can go wrong...and what makes it all right!

Tess Nelson is poised to take a well-deserved step up the corporate ladder when it's yanked out from under her. With no job and nothing to fill her days--just a nonrefundable ticket for a trip to Hawaii--Tess decides a tropical vacation is just what she needs. But Tess's journey to paradise is a disaster from the beginning. A sprained ankle at the airport is just the beginning. Then there's the lost contact lens and the lost luggage, the lightning storm at a luau, and the hotel fire. Not to mention the approaching hurricane. And the attractive, annoying young man who keeps crossing her path--and really shaking her up. All Tess wants to do is get her life back under control. But God, it seems, has something else in mind--like opening her heart to everything her life could be.

    A not so subtle appeal to "be" the church!

    This review was written for Being the Body.
    When Chuck Colson, former Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon, made a profession of faith shortly before being convicted for obstruction of justice in the Watergate scandal, many viewed his profession of faith as just another "jailhouse conversion." As with the Apostle Paul, a large number of those cynics were from the "religious establishment." But Colson consistently and repeatedly silenced his critics through nearly four decades of faithful service to Jesus Christ and His Church. His passing in April of this year has created a huge void, but he has left a legacy of more than 30 books intended to prod the Church toward fulfilling the Great Commission. Through the years, Colson became an outspoken and familiar Christian social critic. He repeatedly challenged the status quo and urged the Body of Christ to fulfill Jesus' mandate of being light and salt in a dark and decaying world. That passion is clearly expressed in "Being the Body." This edition is actually an update of a 1993 work ("The Body") which was co-authored with Ellen Vaughn. Colson may not have been a theologian by training, but he was an careful apologist and a faithful churchman. He was also a master storyteller, as is evidenced within this volume. He verbally and personally walks us through the tragedies of 9/11, the account of convicted murderer Rusty Woomer, and a recollection of the Auschwitiz nightmare so clearly that the reader feels he is right there, experiencing those moments. But sensationalism is not Colson's purpose. His stories and illustrations are designed to awaken a sluggish Western church in a day of great opportunity for making Christ known. This book is not what I expected...it is more! It is filled with biblical references, but not in an oppressive manner. Some purists may even criticize him for not thumping the Bible more forcefully. The book is well annotated and contains a list of recommended reading and an index. A 13-lesson study guide is also provided for groups or individuals.

    It usually takes me about a week to read a book, but I read this one in two days! I had a hard time putting it down! You just never knew what was gonna happen next! I was reading it during my breaks at work, and when I would return back to my job, my co-workers wanted to know what was up! It is a great read!

    I thought the book had one good character - Stella DeMuer. The other main characters were boring and seemed one dimensional. The author mentions in the back of the book that she wanted to write a "lighter fare" novel, and that is exactly how it reads - as a very lightweight, boring story.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it in one day! The setting of Hawaii and the characters made a great scenario. I highly recommend STRANDED IN PARADISE!
