The story of BJ Higgins is one all Chrisitans would benefit from reading. From Pastors, youth leaders, and Sunday School teachers; to students and parents. This story of passion for Christ exemplifies a zeal that is largely missing in our American Christian culture today.
This is a wonderful book for any Christian to read. BJ Higgins was a young man who accepted Christ at the tender age of 8. BJ lived his life to do the will of God. I most admit I did cry from parts of this book, but don't get me wrong my tears were not for BJ, because he knew what our purpose in this world was and that is to do the will of God. It is sad that some of us live a lifetime and still do not have a personal relationship with God the way BJ did. BJ contracted a disease on one of his mission trips to Peru, which he did not survive, but God is the only one who knows the hour or time we will leave this earth, but I think he used BJ even at his tender age to draw so many to Christ and he is still using his memory and spirit to draw others to Christ. I never met this young man, but I do feel a closeness to his spirit after reading this book. Thankyou BJ may you R.I.P. God Love
I used this inspiring story of a young man sold out to Christ in a book club discussion group. It was so awesome. Really changed the lives of participants. Challenged us to take more seriously our relationship to Christ and make ourselves available to be instruments to reflect Christ through our lives and witness. A great read!
