The Great Good Thing: A Secular Jew Comes to Faith in Christ by Andrew Klavan
THE GREAT GOOD THING is both an autobiography, as well as a Spiritual journey. We hear the lamentable story of how the author, as a young boy, become so immersed in daydreaming that he actually began to lose connection with reality. His dreams became his entire life, as he obsessed with wild fantasies and adventures. Schoolwork was simply not done. In teen age years, he was able to fake and con his way through classes, making up bizarre tales to satisfy his teachers.
The author's conversion takes place at the very end of the book. I wish I could have witnessed his baptism. What a moment!
Perhaps best of all, I appreciate the author's obsession with writing clear, clean sentences. His expertise is apparent in this book. Andrew Klavan is a master at writing. I look forward to reading all his works.
Stupid me for not finding this great writer until now.
