Book Review: The Waiting Place by Eileen Button
Posted by ~Ang at 9:40 AM
I received a copy of this book free of charge from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.
This book is a collection of essays that the author has put together about the waiting places in her life. She chooses certain life experiences and writes about them. Talks some about how God works as we wait and how we need to just enjoy the moment of waiting. Though the book was not awful, I did expect more to be written about God. Instead I learned a whole lot about the author and her life. I think some people can relate to the stories in the book but it was a missed opportunity to be pointed more toward Christ in these things.
The author herself seems sweet. I feel like I know her because of the stories she has written. They are good and entertaining. I mourned with her through disappointments. Laughed through funny times. I now feel as she is a friend.
When I select a book I look for one that does point me more toward Christ. I want that to be the center. I do not read for entertainment. This book was more entertainment reading with a little bit of God thus it is called a Christian book.
