Reviews - What do customers think about The Good News From North Haven: A Year in the Life of a Small Town?

Sensitive Stories and Caring Messages  Dec 20, 2005
In this collection of essays, Michael L, Lindvall presents sensitive stories and caring messages based upon the life of an ordinary church and its congregation. It is clear that Rev. Lindvall loves these people, who although fictitious, are no doubt drawn upon his own experience serving a congregation in the upper Midwest that served as a prototype for the "North Haven" church.

This best seller is the first of his published works. There is a follow-up "Leaving North Haven" book and two recent (2007) non-fiction Christian works "A Geography of God" and "What Did Jesus Do?" Both also receive five stars by this reviewer on this site.com

Those who read this one will want to read them all.

Time passes and Rev. Lindvall is no longer serving the church at "North Haven". If you are fortunate enough to hear him preach each Sunday morning at the Brick Presbyterian Church in New York City, then you know that he has a gift for telling stories that reach people, down deep, inspiring, tender, challenging, and filled with light and love.

At the Brick Church, Michael L. Lindvall follows several illustrious pastors of other eras, including two different pastor-authors of much loved hymns: "This Is My Father's World" (Maltbie Davenport Babcock) and "Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee (Henry van Dyke)"

Come to think of it, Lindvall's essays come very close to being hymns, and we believe that his predecessors would both appreciate and approve of his writings.
 
It will be reprinted!  Jul 23, 2001
I just attended a conference where Michael Lindvall was the keynoter. The book will come out again next year along with his new one_Leaving North Haven_. Rev. Lindvall is a pastor first and a writer second. He was gracious and listened to all our suggestions for his new book. Buy both of them for some wonderful stories of God's grace in the lives of special small-town people.
 
Read and Chuckle  Jun 12, 2001
Someone reviewed the book and told several of the stories to a very receptive audience. I then purchased several books as I found them for gifts, and made sure I kept one. I used it for a lesson one Sunday with my Sunday School group, and now they want copies. We all remembered similar situations of small towns, people, traditions and change, and how the Grace of God keeps us growing.
 
This book is charming!  Apr 7, 2000
I'm disappointed that this book is out of print. Some friends have heard excerpts from my copy and want to purchase a copy for themselves. Three years ago I gave copies of it as a Christmas gift. I hope the publisher will decide to start printing this again! This book shows that it's okay to be a Christian and have a sense of humor at the same time.
 
Charming  Aug 30, 1999
This book is sweet, funny and charming. It's everything we city dwellers think should happen in a hometown and much of it makes us long for a haven. Thank you Michael Lindvall for sharing your thoughts and reflections.

I'm a writing teacher and a Christian and felt that the simple messages were a gentle reminder of caring and goodness. I highly recommend this book and I'm just sorry that there's not an entire series.
