Book Reviews: Running from a Crazy Man (and Other Adventures Traveling with Jesus) by Lori Stanley Roeleveld
|5 stars, 3 reviews|
Lori Stanley Roeleveldabout this book: Do you enjoy your Biblical insight with a generous helping of humor and cultural reference? Are you looking for an unconventional devotional that will make you laugh and think? I wrote Running from a Crazy Man (and other adventures traveling with Jesus)for Christians coping with real life issues, Christians who know their Bible and know Jesus but also know enduring trial. It is meant for Christians who've pulled to the side of the narrow road but hope to be invited or incited to get back into the adventure.
With chapter titles like Elephant Repellent, Cheeseburger Jesus, Church Bullies, The Faith of the Redshirts, and Clean Up on Aisle Three, you'll see right away I bring my own weird and wonderful perspective on faith to this book. Each chapter is short and concludes with scripture references, thought questions, and a takeaway point for the reader.
King David had been told he was headed for the kingship and have every reason to hope for clear sailing - right until the moment a spear came sailing at his head. Then, suddenly, all he was doing was running from a crazy man. What's your crazy man? Disaster? Disease? Depression? Disillusionment? Whatever it is, reading this book will show you you're not alone and inspire you to continue on with Christ.

Running is Not a RaceLove this book. Easy to read vignettes with a punch! Very thought-provoking. Lori is an excellent writer! I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to walk more closely with the Lord. [by Deb Haggerty]
Expect the UnexpectedLori Roeleveld has a heart people, a passion for the Word, and a fresh way of sharing God's truth. The way Ms. Roeleveld tells a story may bring you to tears or laughter, but it will always make you think. Page after page of "Huh, I never thought of it that way" lead the reader to quiet life changing, spirit-led moments. [by Tina Hunt]
