I found this book enjoyable and thought it presented a great lesson about the way we treat others. However, I was disappointed with the final scene that took place in the cornfield. There were words such as "atonement," "trust," and "forgiveness", yet it skirted around any mention of Christ. Jesus Christ alone is the one in whom we can trust, who made atonement for our sins with His blood, and who we go to for forgiveness. Russell told Eddie that he could face the storm because he was bigger than the storm, but it's God who is bigger. He told Eddie to trust in who he was, but God is whom we should trust. He told him he was worthy, but the fact is that we are utterly unworthy! Christ is the only One who is worthy which is why He had to redeem us with His perfect, sinless sacrifice. The totally humanistic solution to the problem will most likely persuade people to believe that they must look to something within themselves instead of looking to God. I feel that the good things about this book were canceled out by the omission of such important truths.
I loved this book! I couldn't put the book down...especially after the 100th page. This book is an easy read and very enjoyable. I would definitely give this as a gift and recommend it to others. Curl up with a hot cup of tea and Glenn's book and enjoy!
