People love this book for a plethora of reasons, but the main reason I come to find is the wisdom laced into every theme, and quotes that will send you deep
The journey I was taken on while reading the novel had a beneficial effect on myself, expressed significance to the world about a common topic and showed how the main character gradually changed throughout the story. I felt
The story really brought out a lot of emotions out of me. Some parts I enjoyed over others but it had me hooked from the start. I think that we learn that things do get better over time and we should really start appreciating friends and family more than we already are. Overall I think that the book had nice themes in it, definitely a must
It makes them face harsh realities such as their own sin and shortcomings and ultimately realize that it's about Jesus. Their ministry, their work, their plans, their goals, and everything else points to one person, Jesus Christ. It’s a Christ centered ministry book. If a person is looking for a step by step method then this is not the book you want to
This book, can relate to people who don't usually believe that they can make a change. That they have no effect on the world. This book, tells you straight up, that if you change yourself, you can change the world around you. This is very motivating, and a very awesome
It had changed numerous thoughts on my life and I am glad that I was able to read it. I would gladly recommend that anyone else read it and hope that they experience a change in thoughts, similar to what I had undergone. I will take with me the messages of perseverance, acceptance and love that Walls had told us all
I do think some improvements here and there could really make the book better. The writing is marvelous, much like Neal’s other books, but the plot seemed under-developed and disjointed. It’s as if he wrote an a thousand page book, then cut all the important, thought provoking pages out; leaving the book to be good, but choppy. Overall, I’m really glad I read this book, and I think others should as
It taught me that strength and perseverance can make a significant impact in life. I also learned that forgiveness and the ability to forgive is much more powerful than I ever realized. This novel sucked me into the story and its characters and took me on an emotional ride of highs and lows. Finally, it forced me to reevaluate my previous judgement of the homeless.
Over the years, opinions on God have changed. Some people believed that God is terrifying and vengeful while others disagreed saying that He is loving and accepting of all. Jonathan Edwards was a Calvinist, who argued that unless one never sins, he or she is most likely doomed to hell. Edwards believed that humans are powerless in comparison to the power of God. In “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” by Jonathan Edwards, the author achieves his purpose of arguing that in order to be saved from an afterlife in hell, one must ask for forgiveness and accept Christ, through the uses of intense imagery, a terrifying tone, and understandable metaphors.
When I first met someone who didn’t like the book I was beyond shocked. Right at that moment, I realized that reading has its own effects on me. Reading has changed my writing skills, it has improved my knowledge and lastly, it has helped me manage my stress while going through hard times. Without reading I wouldn’t be the person that I am today.
Although I did get confused while reading the book a few times, I think most individuals would enjoy it. I read this book all in one day, as it was a type of book that is super hard to stop reading after you start it. I wouldn’t recommend starting this book, if the reader doesn’t have time to read a majority of the book in one sitting. I believe a busy person would get too confused and lost in the book, since they wouldn’t have time to sit down and read the whole book. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone under the age of fourteen, as it can be very sad at times.
This quote from an 8th grade student shows what most students are taught from a young age except with over exaggeration. However, this over exaggerated example helps in convincing students that they have been taught to grow up with a ridiculous and illogical mindset when it comes to
It 's a jaw-dropping book that will leave you wanting more as the author Laurie writes in a crisp and clear way describing the young girl Melinda’s horrific story and how it unfolds. The author 's tone gives off the vibe of a young frighted girl which I find really enhances this sad, but exhilarating story. This story taught me to always speak up for myself and to never let anyone take advantage of me. I would recommend this novel because it is extremely detailed, painting vivid pictures in your mind that really help to magnify and
