No Small Change

I read the introduction and then the first story. I was absolutely confused. As I scanned through the whole book, reading one story at a time, I was dually disappointed in the content.
This book is a collection of short stories that  was more like reading a go on about his life and his stories and his thoughts.    These are stories  that show you the world through a different set of eyes, turning the ordinary into something deeper. The author has a way of making you feel as though you are right there with him. Not all of the stories stuck with me, but a lot of them did. The ones that did, struck a deep cord which will not easily be forgotten.
If a reader wants an personal look inside the mind of a Methodist preacher, then this book is well recommended. If the reader wants an personal look inside the minds of people about God (as the blurb insinuated), this is not the book to read.
I was surprised that the book's outline did not match the book's content. I'm overwhelmingly disappointed by the author.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
