"Journey into Love" by Nicola Neal

About this book:

  “This book tells the compelling story of a journey into the profound depths of God’s love; of the unquenchable grace He pours into and through our lives.
  In March 2009, Nicola Neal moved with her family to live permanently in a nation none of them had ever visited.  All she had was God’s promise: “I am taking you there to teach you how to love.” After this step of obedience followed a rollercoaster adventure of dramatic highs and crushing lows as together they confronted the most unimaginable poverty and need.
  Yet we read how, in the face of overwhelming circumstances and towering odds, love triumphs again and again. In this beautifully written book, Nicola shares timeless truths woven through extraordinary stories of love and grace.

My personal Rating-

I feel bad giving this book such a low rating—I mean, I do admirer what the Neal family was doing in Uganda. But this book was so badly edited and written. Y’all know I’m a stickler for the ‘H’ being capital when talking about God and this book even had the ‘H’ on the back capital. But in the actual book no ‘H’s were capital. None. Zero. That’s kind of a big thing for me—especially as this book came across more as a witnessing book than a missionary story.

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
*I received this book for free from the Publisher (Destiny Publishers) for this review.
