"Reasons for Hatred" by J.E. Thomas Book Review

Reasons for Hatred: A Story Based on True EventsReasons for Hatred: A Story Based on True Events by J E Thomas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First of all, do not let the brevity of this book cause you to think that it is not a powerful, masterfully-written story.  It is all that and more.  Enter into the reading of this story with the proper mindset, and I believe it can be a life-changing story for you.  I highly recommend it to adults.  I would not feel comfortable recommending it to a young teen due to the content of the book.  There were many times it was hard to read, and I had to take a break from reading here and there.  However, the book drew me in, and I was compelled to finish it.  There is no profanity, and the plan of salvation is presented in a wonderful way.

Rarely does a book bring me to tears, and this would have been the last book I would have expected to do this.  But it did as I finished the last few pages, and I could have cared less that I was in a classroom full of teenagers.  Although I already knew the principles in the book, I was reminded and convicted of things in my life that need to be committed to the Lord.  I hope I never find myself saying that my lot inlife is horrible or too hard.  May God then remind me of Hadassah's story.

By the way, I think sharing the story with your child may be appropriate, but letting them loose with the book may prove too intense and difficult for them to read.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100% mine.
