Hard hike

REVIEW: The Trail: A Tale about Discovering God’s Will by Ed Underwood

The premise of this book drew me to want to read it, but unfortunately I found The Trail too much of a hike for me.

It is about a pastor who leads a couple on a trail into the wilderness to help discover God’s will. Some of the lessons they learn along the way include trust in the Lord, intimacy with Jesus, God’s timing, signs of encouragement, and grace.

Again, while the concept of the book—following God’s path—is appealing, I was unappetized.
I felt the writing style was not conducive to following along. I often found myself confused with who was saying what, and was especially confused between the dialogue of characters Matt and Sam, often swapping them. Overall, this book was a bit of a struggle for me.
