Would you frequent a store with the motto "We don't offer perfection but, rather, the beauty of imperfection"? If you were in the market for wood flooring, you might almost demand such an outlet! Beautifully aged and authentically distressed wood possesses a quality and character than is unable to be duplicated in a manufactured laminate product. The best laminate veneer holds no comparison to the patina of the original.

Authors Timothy Willard and Jason Locy draw a skillful comparison between valuable flooring and authentic Christian living. It is their belief, and the premise of Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society, that life is richer and more appreciated when the veneer is removed and the character of the material is allowed to shine through. Like skilled woodworkers, they carefully strip away the highly regulated and manufactured veneers of "good Christian living" and then tenderly restore the underlying material – one's character –so that the uniqueness of the individual shines through. Just as each board tells a different story, so each life should have its unique characteristics.

Throughout this process, the reader is challenged to examine their own thoughts and decisions against the character and person of God. Willard and Locy masterfully display the simplicity of life in a way that highlights the greatness and majesty of God while revealing the flaws and garishness of what passes for "acceptable societal norms."

Although a voracious reader, I rarely read a book in one sitting. Veneer stands out in that regard. I literally could not put it down, and devoured the 260+ pages while waiting for my sons to complete their swim team practice! My eyes raced from page to page, my heart responding to the truths found within God's Word as explained by the authors. More passages were highlighted and pages turned down for further contemplation in this book than in any other of similar size.

Perhaps the largest concept to grab my attention dealt with the difference between experiencing God (a popular phrase in some Christian circles) to the desire God has for His creation to encounter Him. Experience focuses on a past action – you know what a roller coaster experience contains, for example; yet an encounter could be anything – and that is the point God stresses to His children. Life could be anything, but He is there! I can heartily recommend

Veneer to you. I would also recommend setting aside time for reading it, as I expect it will grip you much as it did me. – Charles Eldred, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
