Wisdom Hunter Summary:
Propelled into a quest for the granddaughter no one wants him to find, Jason Faircloth discovers that knowing it all could cost him everything he has. A fast-paced suspense novel, Wisdom Hunter explores what it means to break free of Christian legalism—and why grace can mean the difference between life and death.
Wisdom Hunter is truly a great book that I can honestly say it forever impacted my life. This adventurous novel brilliantly written by Randall Arthur is action packed and immediately draws you in from the beginning, as a good book should and then you find that you've arrived at the last page within a day or two. Wisdom Hunter will reach your mind and your heart! It truly is a powerful experience to read and your heart will be changed.
I thought about how I could add to others description of this book since the reviews I've read are top notch in my book regarding Randall's amazing novel. I decided that through the emotional events of family crisis' that transpired with the main character of the book, Pastor Jason Faircloth, it is here that I felt my heart burst forth with cries out loud. Page after page Randall Arthur paints lives of people who have been hurt by their afflictions.
It is here that the author sounds the warning of uniformity in the church that destroys one's need of individual thinking and of truly accepting our differences. Randall's thoughts on this subject are very profound. Then we discover grace is ushered in and the work of change begins when one admits sincerely before others and their creator the need for a heart change.
If you are on the journey of searching for what is true and want to know why you believe then this book is for you. Having arrived at a place in one's life where you are reviewing your life versus regretting your life, then I most respectfully recommend this book to you. A heart that has been rebuilt seeks wisdom and understanding and I especially love how Randall so appropriately named his book, Wisdom Hunter. Funny thing is that when you come alongside the characters in this book and you've been touched by genuine humility and compassion for them, you just might find yourself being drawn to be more sensitive to the hurts of others.
I am so appreciative that this was book was provided for review by WaterBrook Multnomah. Wisdom Hunter, a must read... 5+ stars
