I am a blog stalker. I love to read Rachel Held Evans’ blog and when she posted her book lover’s survey I jumped on it fast. She said she was excited to read Ian Morgan Cron’s Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me: A Memoir…of Sorts and when I saw it later that day on Thomas Nelson’s BookSneeze, I was stoked.
This book did not disappoint. I am a sucker for a good story and I was mesmerized by the story Cron told. Not only was it a fabulous story, it was well written and engaging. I appreciated Cron’s writing, but more than that, I appreciated his insight into God, alcoholism, and life.
I laughed aloud, I cried (only once), and I have since thought about Cron, his life, his family, his story. Thanks, Thomas Nelson, for a great read. I appreciate that you send me books in exchange for my honest review.
