I had to take time to ponder this review. I’m still not sure
I can review my exact thoughts about it. The Reason by William Sirls is about a
small town whose church’s cross was struck by lightning. It is a small town
filled with people of varying backgrounds. Each person has their own cross to
bear in this novel. Some are more trying than others, some deal with illness or
disability, some deal with demons of their past and other dealing with their
faith. Then enters Kenneth, a carpenter, who personifies Jesus and he starts performing
miracles around the town.
First, I enjoyed the book and read it quickly and I also
enjoyed the characters. Each had a very distinct personality and was believable
and easy to identify with. I liked the story line and there were real life events
happening throughout the town. The author did a good job pulling all of the
characters together and telling their stories individually as well as bringing
unity to the group.
Now my problem with the book, I’m not sure that I really
liked the personification of Jesus the way it was done. I also feel that the
book comes across that if you “only believe” that Jesus will answer all of your
prayers the way that you want him to. Even though there is a short statement
that states God will answer prayers in His way and His time the tone of the
book was that if you “only believe” nothing bad will ever happen to you and if
it does He will fix it and make it better here on earth. I feel that sometimes
bad things happen but God will give us grace to deal with those things. I
believe the author tries to include this but doesn’t do the best job at it. I’m not going to give a spoiler but I don’t
like the way the story of Alex played out.
I’m glad that I read the book and I enjoyed it. I think most
people who enjoy a good, Christian novel would like it.
I received this book at no charge from Booksneeze.com in
exchange for an honest review.
