Rages to Riches to True Riches in Christ!
I love it when I read a good book that makes me cry and laugh at the same time. That is just what this book did! I was looking forward to reading this book a chapter every day for ten days but once I began it I could not put it down and read it very quickly! This is an unusual memoir/autobiography by Greg Hershberg about his his life. There is a lot about his father. As you read you will understand why the author didso This book is really impressive as it reveals the devotion and love Gregs father showed towards his wife, and the grace God gave Greg. I liked how it shows that riches don't make one happy. And that faith has to be more than traditions.
Overall I was amazed and impressed by the love shared throughout this confusing life. I was not so sure about the fact that he and his wife both saw Jesus in Israel but I over looked this point because I had to since I was falling in love with this read.
I am a history lover so I really enjoyed learning what it was like to grow up Jewish during the 1960s and 1970s.
This book points to Jesus and gives him all the glory. One cannot read this book and be unchanged. This book is another testimony to God's faithfulness.From the first chapter, I was grabbed by this heart-touching, convicting, motivating book. One can tell that the author know his topic , after all it is a book about himself! It was easy to understand yet convicting. Needless to say, I do recommend this book for all audiences!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
