Synopsis: Many today carry a secret: We do not love what we have been commanded to love. We do not love what is holy. Although we might reverence things that are deemed holy — the temple, for example, and the scriptures, and the Sabbath — we do not love them. Not really. Not with our whole souls.
The Holy Secret is the story of a man who learns how to love what matters. As he does, he learns another secret: Love for holiness transforms life itself. His realization of what he had been missing may lead you to some discoveries of your own!
I will start this review off by saying that this book was good. I have been a Christian all my life, and love reading these type's of books. The book is not just centered around Christian living, but told a story of how a man's love for living right changes his life.
The emotions of the main character Michael will have you either agreeing with him or questioning your own true feelings. Finding out that while he believed to be living right does not add up to what he realizes thru out the book he wasn't. The other characters within the book sometimes felt off to me, or should I say "in my opinion" I could not connect with them.
The plot was for the most part believable.There were different times that I felt either did not flow or were cut short, was not done justice, or went further than was needed at that time. I read the book in two days but only because I wanted to finish it within that time frame not because it was so engrossing that I could not put it down. It was a good read for me.
So for the reasons above I am giving this book a Breath of Life rating of:
Three Clock Rating:
