God's on the Phone - Stories of Grade in Action

by Regis J. Flaherty

This book follows an easy pattern:
-short entertaining or heartfelt story
-points to ponder
-discussion questions and action steps

As you can see, this pattern can be used for many things.
- read one chapter a day on your own (conveniently 30 chapters)
- read with a spouse
- use with a bible study or prayer group
- use with a youth group/confirmation class

This book is an easy read an has stories that everyone can relate to. Yes, there was even a punk rock/moshing story!

Great easy read, worth your time and money.
