"Writing as our guide, Martin uses a storyteller's imagination to illuminate key moments from the Scriptures, primarily from the life and ministry of Jesus. In addition, Martin shares key moments from his own life journey as a disciple--and bondservant--of Christ and a mentor to others. The result is a striking exploration of truth that helps us not just think differently, but live differently. Today." -- From page 4 of cover.

I have not yet finished 'What If It's True?: A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus' because it's overdue and there are people waiting in line for it. I intend to reorder it and finish it.

'What If It's True?: A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus' is a very intense book and must be taken in a little at a time, allowing time for it to digest and sink in. Charles Martin reconstructs biblical accounts the way they speak to him. Many are violently harsh in their descriptions and exceptionally hard to read. He weaves those accounts of his perceptions with his personal story and how those biblical events relate to it.

While 'What If It's True?: A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus' is fascinating and breathtaking, as a Grandma aged practicing Catholic raised/educated before Vatican II, I find it a bit too evangelical and sometimes too strident. That said, neither diminish my desire to finish the book nor the insights and grace I have found in it so far.

I haven't (yet!) read all of Martin's novels but as I finish the few remaining, I think 'What If It's True?: A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus' will put them in a different light for me as I now understand he doesn't just write compelling, poignant, compassionate books of faith and forgiveness, he lives it.
