Book Review - Reggie

Two days. That's how long it took me to finish the most recent book that I am reviewing for Booksneeze.

Reggie Dabbs has done an amazing job in recounting his life through his new book, Reggie. Easy to read, yet inspiring and funny, Reggie is a book that any age person can relate to. The transformation that occurred in his life is remarkable. He is a great picture of how God can use a life that begins in the darkest places and renew it to bring Him glory. As I began reading, it was obvious that Reggie wrote this memoir to touch especially the hurting of our world. As a believer, I was concerned that he was not incorporating the "whys" of his life being changed. But the way he eased into this subject was insightful. By the end of the book, you know exactly where he stands as a child of God and how important Christ is to him.

He has a way of relating to children of all ages. He uses imagery and tactics that get to the heart of the issues. There are so many hurting children out in our world who need to hear the good news of Christ and what He can offer.

Being an adoptive mother, I was touched by this story of abandonment and adoption. I can only pray that the stories of my 4 children will be of a similar ending.

As people read this book, I hope not only are they brought to the truth of facing what their lives are, but to their knees knowing they need the Savior that Reggie Dabbs knows.

As part of the blogging network, I received a free copy of Reggie to review.

I heard Reggie speak many years ago at a youth convention. An amazing and funny speaker.
