Title: Of Moose and Men
Author: Torry Martin & Doug Peterson
Publisher: Harvest House Publishing
My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This book is about the hilarious misadventures of Torry Martin and his friend Rob in the beautiful but dangerous state of Alaska. I say dangerous, but only because of the bears and other predators that live in the wilderness. In each hilarious misadventure that Torry reiterates, he finds God working in mysterious ways. For this hippie, his trials work to make his spiritual life stronger in his walk with God, which is an inspiration to all of us (however hilarious).
I would recommend this book to others for its clean humor and insights that God can use anyone, even a misfit like Torry Martin to use his gifts to inspire others to find God. At the end of each chapter, he makes some excellent points such as at the end of the final chapter he states that Jesus doesn’t promise an easy life once you have accepted Him, but things are easier to bear knowing we will be with Him in the end. I like also how he writes this book with a wonderful sense of humor. I hope others who read this book not only read it for a good laugh, but also find the spiritual insights the author(s) give that in the midst of life’s craziness our Heavenly Father is always with us.
