Simple Acts of Faith: Heartwarming Stories of One Life Touching Another Feb 28, 2006
My husband borrowed a copy of this from his doctor's waiting room and so fell in love with it that he promptly asked me to buy a dozen copies so that we could give them out for Christmas presents next year. It's a wonderful use of Norman Rockwell's paintings and the bible versus, with a warm human interpetation. Yes, he did take it back to the doctor's waiting room.
We loved this book Nov 11, 2003
My husband and I went on a short road trip and I read it to him as we drove. We had such a beautiful day. As I read one of the stories we were both so choked up that we had to pull over. What a treasure. On our way home we stopped at a bookstore and bought five more for Christmas gifts.
A Classic Tale Aug 1, 2003
Simple Acts of Faith will undoubtedly be classified as a "coffee table book," yet such a bland modifier hardly does justice to this unique collection of heart-warming stories. For one, they breathe life into Norman Rockwell's ageless paintings, while the portraits tantalize one's senses. As I read this book, I felt moved, but not back to the mythical "good old days" that only existed in people's somewhat memory. Instead, I found myself grasping the reality that community still exists wherever people take the time to care about each other. Such heroic acts make love a reality, in spite of the mad pace of the 21st century. That is something worth celebrating - and taking time to make happen in our own communities.
