Sam, a 20 year old, embarks on a life changing quest that few undertake. On the first day of his adventure, he must choose between two destinations. He wavers, but a mysterious new friend sways him to choose the easier option, where life is full of entertainment and ease-and a sense of entrapment. Supported by the prayers of a faithful older man back home, Sam begins to question his decision when he meets an intriguing new arrival, a young lady named Jill, who finds a way out. Follow along as the epic struggle between good and evil unfolds during The Journey."Rick has crafted a modern day tale along the lines of Pilgrim's Progress. You'll find lots of spiritual nuggets wrapped inside this compelling story full of adventure, discovery, and rich symbolism.

An Allegory About Everybody's Life Jan 12, 2009
An easily read story that will amuse you and make you think as well. Everybody can relate to at least one character in this book which is probably why it appeals to such a broad audience. This is not a book for those looking for deep theological truth but it's not just a cute story either. There is truth in here, what I would call practical truth on how to live the Christian Life. It chronicles one boys path or journey of life and has a number of interesting twists and turns along the way. It's never boring and you'll have finished it before you know it. I'll be reading this one more than once and recommending it to my friends as well.
