Review: Midnight Jesus: Where Struggle, Faith, and Grace Collide… by Jamie Blaine



Review: Midnight Jesus: Where Struggle, Faith, and Grace Collide…

W Publishing

Read this Book!  Spend your money for a copy.  Borrow one if you’ve got no money for it.  It is the best I’ve read in a long, long, long time.  I can’t say it any better than Augustan Burroughs has, “Gorgeous, brilliantly written, deeply moving, life-affirming, and just plain stunning.”  I don’t get excited about a book often, but this one is different.  And in the best way possible.  
 
Blaine makes it plain up front that the book is “A work of creative nonfiction” meaning the names, dates, locations, and other identifying features have been changed to protect those he’s thinking of while he writes.  Don’t be surprised if you find a little of yourself inside this book.  Also don’t be surprised if you find yourself wondering if a few changes need to happen in your own life.  And don’t be surprised if you find yourself laughing at some points and near tears at others.  This is good writing and reading.  

This book was provided by the publishers for a review.  I don’t have to say nice stuff either, but in this case the raves are totally deserved.
