Finding Home

Apr 28, 2009Write!

I read a lot of books. For endorsement. For pleasure. For the sheer joy of reading. Not all books stay with me. Not all books make me think, make me linger long after the book’s closed to ponder. But this one, Finding Home by Brad Huebert, did all that.

It’s a parable of a man trying to be a perfect, obedient Christian only to find himself burned out and deeply, utterly discouraged by all that toil. It’s about authentic Christianity, about the importance of genuine relationship with Christ. It’s a beautifully written picture of our struggle to perform instead of abide.

If you find yourself in that place of burnout, if you feel there’s something missing inside, pick up this modern parable and let God use this story to change your perspective.
