Maybe you have days when you dont feel so good about yourself… Youre not as tall or thin as youd like, or maybe you dont quite fit in or you just get left out. Well, youll start to feel a lot better about yourself once you start reading about Luke! Luke Lang calls himself a freak of nature. Hes a grown man who is the height of an average fifth graderbut thats not what makes him a freak. Hes also about as wide as the average Sumo wrestler (but sadly, too uncoordinated to actually compete as a Sumo wrestler!). Luke knows what its like to feel left out or left behind. But hes got a great sense of humor about his lifes misadventures, and hes sharing the hysterical stories with you, in the hopes that youll feel encouragednot just because youre not as freaky as Luke, but because youll see that God can do extraordinary things through people who are pretty ordinary. While youre reading Lukes embarrassing stories, like the time he got beat up by a girl in Karate class or the time he was fighting for his life at Boy Scout camp, youll learn a little about Gods love and grace, and youll be reminded that you were created on purpose, for a purpose.
Luke Lang has spent much of his life standing out and feeling left out. He's a self-proclaimed "freak of nature" who has spent more than twenty years working with teenagers. Throughout his life, Luke has learned to accept and celebrate his weaknesses as he has come to realize that God can do extraordinary things through extremely ordinary people. He is a cartoonist, a speaker at camps and retreats, and currently volunteers in his church's youth group. Luke is married to Diana, and they live in North Carolina with their daughter Delanie, their two beagles, and Luke's extensive Pez dispenser collection.
Beth5 Stars Out Of 5December 9, 2009BethI highly, highly recommend this book. I read it in one sitting primarily because I could not put it down. It has so many wonderful nuggets that carried with me. I love how Luke interweaves humor, stories, scripture, cartoons, encouragement, honesty and openness with real-life examples. It is great read for someone who's mind tends to wander! Many times I was laughing out loud and nodding my head in agreement. I just loved so much about this book. If you have any insecurities,feel like you've struggled fitting in, or you know someone who struggles with this, buy this and read it today.
