    I went to the library today, and the book I wanted to pick up was already checked out I had two young children with me, so I didn t want to wander the stacks aimlessly looking for a book to read Instead I just headed down to the children s area It was story time I looked around the Newberry Award section halfheartedly and grabbed this one I ve been reading a lot of nonfiction lately, so I thought a good bit of juvenile lit would be good for me This one was especially appealing because it w I went to the library today, and the book I wanted to pick up was already checked out I had two young children with me, so I didn t want to wander the stacks aimless...

    This book served as a wonderful distraction during several of my recent exercise sessions on the treadmill and I needed the distraction, believe me I picked up this audiobook on a whim at the Green Valley Book Fair several years ago It is a well deserved Newbery Honor Book The protagonist in the book is an 11 year old boy named Pete who becomes totally enad with a traveling evangelist who comes through their town one summer The Man ends up inviting Pete to l This book served as a wonderful distraction during several of my recent exercise sessions on the treadmill and I needed the distraction, believe me I picked up this audiobook on a whim at the Green Valley Book Fair several years ago It is a well deserved Newbery Honor Book The protagonist in the book is an 11 year old boy named Pete who becomes totally enad wit...

    This is an extremely brief book that sort of expands in your head once you ve read it It s a deceptively simple story Pete, a thirteen year old boy who is discovering his Christianity, meets and itinerant revival preacher, who sweeps him off his feet with his religious fervor Pete decides to leave town secretly with the preacher, feeling called by God to carry out His work While making this decision, Pete is forced to deal with his less religious parents, as well as with his openly atheist b This is an extremely brief book that sort of expands in your head once you ve read it It s a deceptively simple story Pete, a thirteen year old boy who is discovering his Christianity, meets and itinerant revival preacher, who sweeps him off his feet with his religious fervor Pete decides to leave town secretly with the preacher, feeling called by God to carry out His work While making this decision, Pete is forced to deal with his less religious parents, as well as with his openly atheist best friend, Rufus.I thought the whole thing was carried out beautifully The preacher s irresponsible behavior is treated as the dangerous actions of one man, not as an indictment of Christianity, so this isn t by any means an anti religious book Instead, it s about humanity, and one boy s growing and changing faith I definitely think it deserved the Newbery Honor it received, although like many of the Newbery books, I think it s ...

    Ryland does a great job telling a compelling story in little over 100 pages The subject of religion and revivals and how our faith is sometimes affected by the people we meet would certainly make for good discussion I have to admit, though, that I was creeped out by the main character s obsession with the evangelical preacher It was like he, at 13, was in love with Preacher Man Somehow, fire and brimstone mixed with the hint of homosexuality hit a li...

    This book packs a lot in a few pages Peter s search for faith, truth and religion takes him on a most interesting journey as he meets and interacts with a traveling preacher I appreciated the process of how easily Peter rationalized leaving all that was familiar behind to accompany the traveling preacher this is precisely the justification young teens employ when facing such a dilemma I equally liked the unconditional relationship between Peter and his best friend, Rufus many valuable lesso This book packs a lot in a few pages Peter s search for faith, truth and religion takes him on a most interesting journey as he meets and interacts with a traveling preacher I appreciated the process of how easily Peter rationalized leaving all that was familiar behind to accompany the traveling preacher this is precisely the justification young teens employ when facing such a dilemma I equally liked the unconditional relationship between Peter and his best frien...
