Every once in a while you stumble onto a book that is just right for you, at just the right time. The Noticer by Andy Andrews, that I reviewed for Thomas Nelson this month, is that book for me. Beautifully written, it is a book of great wisdom, much like Proverbs, yet told as a parable. The story is written in such an engaging fashion, you will find the wisdom practical no matter where you are at in life.
The main character of the book, Jones, puts himself into the lives of those that he notices, at just the right time. Some have fallen on financial difficulty, others marital dispute, some have given up hope in life, while other are just trying to figure out what comes next. In each of these instances, Jones provides them with a different perspective than that which they see, and in that some wisdom and hope.
How often when we find ourselves faces with life's trials, see only one facet of that which we face. To have someone come along share a different perspective, can change the entire way we look at it and how we deal with it. It is also one of our greatest gifts we can share with each other, as Andy points out in closing.
This is truly a great book, that I highly recommend for everyone to read. It is a refreshing, heart warming story packed with nuggets of wisdom that will go a long way in your own lives and those that you share it with. It comes out tomorrow, April 28, by Thomas Nelson, check it out!
