Finding an Unseen God by Alicia Britt Chole

I have finished a unique book from Bethany House Publishers called Finding An Unseen God by Alicia Britt Chole. I'll admit this book is different from most books I read, but I found it to be very thought-provoking and interesting.

This is the story of how the author, a former Atheist, found God. I found myself wanting to keep reading chapter after chapter. Her writing style really holds the readers attention; the book format is unique as well in the way the short (normally 2-3 pages each) chapters are ordered in the book, alternating between Alicia's flashback to her past up to her point of belief and information regarding religion, beliefs, and God. She challenges the reader to consider their own beliefs and offers some questions that will force the reader to examine their faith.

My husband read this book before I did and found it to be an enjoyable read for him as well. I enjoyed reading the book and would recommend it to others. I like the creative puzzle on the cover too.

Good review. I want to encourage you again to put a link on your other blog over to this one. Your reviews are too good to be done in secret. In fact, after your son starts to school you might want to think again about reviewing books for more publishers and doing it on a regular basis. It's fun, if you have the time.
