Through his book, Soul Coma, Scot Longyear speaks with compassion, raw emotion … and a little machismo thrown in to boot. A lot of the fiction books I read regularly are definitely aimed at a female readership, but this book contains many stories I would say a male audience might relate with more. And that’s not a bad thing! We need the men in our lives to hear from other spiritual men about their triumphs and struggles in their relationships with our Heavenly Father.
So, if you are a seasoned Christian, female or male, whose spiritual life has gotten a bit stale . . . this book may give you a few new tools to try and revive it to the state your soul was in when your love for God was new – or perhaps . . . even better than that!
Scot’s writing is very conversational and full of real-life story examples, much like his public speaking style. For examples of his public speaking check out the sermon archive at mccth.org/sermons. Many people leave Maryland Community Church, where Scot is the senior pastor, feeling like they know Scot because he shares stories in an authentic voice that feels like you’re having a conversation with a good friend–one close enough that you share even the embarrassing moments of life with–in order to learn from the mistakes.
Through this book Scot invites readers to seek a spiritual life that is above the norm. How about it? Ready to experience the extraordinary God has in mind for you?
I’m rating this one a 4.5 out of 5 soul-monitoring blips.
