Night of the Confessor
Halik addresses the challenges of being a good Christian in this day and age (having lived through political oppression in communist Czechoslavakia he is, shall we say, an expert in overcoming challenges) and what it takes to have your faith grow. By regularly partaking on confession and living by the two paradoxical statements from the New Testament ("For human beings this is impossible, but for God all things are possible" and "for when I am weak, then I am strong") we can begin to cultivate a loving relationship with God and try to uphold our faith in this trying era.
Overall, a very good, thoughtful, inspirational book. Just not a light read, will definitely take more than one sitting.
"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
