A wake up call! Oct 31, 2006
This is one of those books I picked up to simply flick through, but found I was quickly enraptured in every word. In it, the writer takes a perilous journey to the "dark places" of eight different cities in the USA. The writers description of what he saw and experienced almost made me feel like I was with him during his midnight touring. This book will stir you toward evangelism. Rather than deep theological thoughts, it tells the true story of unfortunate people that triggered me to rethink my position in the "religious lifestyle" in which many of us often find ourselves stuck. He writes as a member of the family of God, sibling to sibling, and this was a refreshing angle.
