Summary ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Phil Madeira

On a summer's day but always leading to a God not worrying about changing or chastising his broken children but singing in a low guttural hum forged in the heat of his passion for humans a God almighty love song Just like a sweet old hymn can rekindle even a doubting cynic's longing for God Madeira's beckoning voice can turn a wandering heart toward home with laughter and hope. This book is too cute by half I ll bet the author is a great guy and someone fun to hang out with But witticisms are delicate tools and in the hands of amateurs they float about like random fluff thrown into a fan This book is an incoherent collection of short essays on scattered subjects the language lurching from one cute phrase to the next
