I have just come home from service last night and felt like resting. Even if I was beat, I felt light inside, so when the book FINDING COMFORT by Nelson Dy arrived on my lap, I said to myself, "What in the world was Christian thinking? Why did he think I would like this book?"
Imagine, the back blurb said: Unloved. Unfulfilled. Unforgiven. Unwanted. Uncertain.
Huh? It's true that I am sorta kinda broken, but I know I'm loved, blah, blah, blah...
Yet as I opened the book and started reading, it felt like it was written just for me (How selfish can I get?). =) [Sowee, no spoilers...]
Finding Comfort was written by a person from my former community (BF Homes Christian Fellowship, now known as Bread from Heaven Community Church...no longer are they only found @ BF Homes Las Pinas...they have other "branches" too) that I have never met and yet, I think I found myself a new prospective friend (and that's what he hopes to gain with this book...a new friend). I'm also excited to meet his wife, Lucy.
Finding Comfort is a "great" book because of its honesty and simplicity. It's a book for everyone...broken or not.
You will easily find "yourself" in one of the characters, if not all, and you can easily relate to them.
Finding Comfort is a page turner and a book that you will read all over again. (Why didn't I just write a review? Ah, it's because it's more personal this way.)
