Some Christian faith books are hard to read. They really don't give you anything that you can take back to your life and use. Sure, they might sound great in theory, but how does it apply to my life. The book Modern Day Parables is not one of those books.
This is a really unique Christian book in that it doesn't teach in the traditional method. The basic idea behind the book is that it talks about the life and times of an 11 year old boy. He goes through a lot of typical things that an 11 year old boy goes through.
When you're reading through the stories of the book, you really wouldn't have much of an idea that this was a Christian book. Not that it's dirty or anything, it's just that they read like regular stories. Then at the end of each chapter, you're shown why this teaches you a Biblical lesson. Hence the name...Modern Day Parables.
Another thing that's great about this book is that it's humorous. It's not one of those stuffy books that you read and think someone with 17 PhD's wrote it. You can actually picture yourself involved in many of these scenarios and you laugh with the main character.
It's really appropriate for people of all ages, but those that are young adults will really get a kick out of it. All of the old school nostalgia like regular Nintendo, Mega Man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and those kinds of things are in there. You'll find yourself reliving the "good ol' days".
Overall, this is a quality book that went a little under the radar. You've probably never heard of it, but do yourself a favor and grab a copy today. You'll really enjoy it.
