Everyone is called to something, somewhere.
GodRunner is a non-fiction book written by missionary Will Hart. Will tells his story of coming to the Lord and about his missionary work. Will was the son of hippies. His mother became saved from listening to the radio. She was filled by the Holy Spirit and the family thought she had gone crazy. Even though his father was at times scared of the situation, he decided the family would follow her. When Will was a senior in high school, he became saved and decided to be a missionary instead of going to college. This is a book of places he’s been, people he has saved, as well as his family life.
Some of the points he makes in this book are to go out and do what the Spirt wants you to do. You do not have to leave the country, you can be used by God right where you are, in what ever you are doing. We are to take every opportunity God gives us to work with others. God created us in love and he will never stop loving us. God is seeking us and pursuing us. He seeks us when we are least expecting it and sometimes that makes us uncomfortable. But sometimes God has to take us to our lowest point to restore us and rediret us.
While this book is not what I expected, it is very well written and has good points in it. I especially liked the parts in the book where the author talks about his young life and his mother’s personality. I typically do not read auto-biographies, and at times it felt that this is what the book is. I did however, think he did a good job of describing what a missionary family’s life it like. While not going into detail, he did show the sacrifices the entire family had to make. I am giving this book a 4, only because of the auto-biography feel.
I received a copy of this book from Book Club Network. I have chosen to write this honest review.
