Several years ago Joshua Press released the biogrpahy of Don Heron entitled U-Turn in the Fast Lane.

Don eventually found himself  involved with one of the largest auto theft syndicates in Canada while at the same serving as a crime prevention officer. This is an amazing story of Grace, Mercy and Redemption.

Charles Darwin Book Review by Marc-Andre Lachance

 

Normally we place the full text of book reviews directly into the blog post so you can immediately see it when the blog is updated.

God has not sent us into the world with a message it will find palatable. God has sent us into the world to preach a message the world finds absurd. The world lies in wickedness, and it does not have a taste for the things of God.
