Serials and Scenarios - Mountain in My Rearview Mirror

Book Description:

One of the most sought-after communicators in venues all over North America, Bill Butterworth has a message for those overwhelmed by life's many obstacles.

Through heart-tugging and hilarious real-life stories, he illustrates practical, biblical principles for living a victorious life. Whether he's struggling to climb a mountain or getting caught stealing baseball cards, recovering from a divorce or duct-taping his glasses to his head (yes, really), Bill has an extraordinary ability to inspire readers through his blend of humor, wisdom, and practicality.

Mountain in my Rearview Mirror encourages readers to conquer life's mountains--and offers help and hope along the journey.

My Review:

With stories of physical and emotional triumphs and failures Bill Butterworth shares encouragement and his testimony of God's faithfulness to him through trials and dark, dark nights.

Surprisingly meaty scriptural teachings accompany common sense examples, inspiring stories and humor. The short to-the-point but deep chapters make Mountain a read that would be easily digested in short meals, like a devotional book, or gobbled down in one or two sittings.

With Father's Day right around the corner, Mountain might be something to look into. The sports, the triumphs, the male perspective might be the perfect gift for a man in your life, especially if he is facing a challenge, or just conquered one.
