Lisa Harper, Author of Stumbling into Grace, takes us into her life and her journey of becoming more Christlike, written in a journal type format, she relates circumstances of her life, often humorously, and relates them to scripture and growing in Christ. Each chapter includes reflection questions to aid the reader in their own journey to Christ.
I had difficulty getting through this book, not that it was horrible, but I was not really able to relate to the author on her journey, though many of the stories she relates were quite humorous and enjoyable; some of the ties she makes with scripture are a bit of a stretch. I am partial to the KJV of the Bible, which she does not use, and I didn’t particularly care for her modern day interpretations of the Bible. This is not to say that others would not find this book helpful or enjoyable, it just was not ‘me’. This book was not what I was expecting. If you are a middle aged single woman, who feels a bit lost on her religious journey, you might better be able to relate to the author and better appreciate her perspectives and the reflection questions in this book.
