Five-year-old Josh and his two older brothers lose their parents in a drunk-driving accident. A series of foster homes and a shocking tragedy eventually separate them, leaving Josh alone, angry, and distrustful of most everyone. At age eighteen, Josh strikes out on his own to find work. With only a high school education and few life skills, he is one step away from homelessness when Providence brings him to a place where he finds much more than physical shelter. For the first time in his life, Josh receives unconditional love and something every human being craves, the gift of "the blessing."
The book includes an introduction and reader’s guide designed to identify and discuss the five elements of the biblical blessing that every person needs. Through the power of Josh's story, readers are shown how to give this gift to their children and others as outlined in the more than one million copy bestseller, The Blessing.
I received this wonderful book from the Publisher, Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review.
What I can say is that I like this book. It was heart rending reading about Josh and the condition which he grew up with. It's no wonder that Josh does not trust people easily and preferred to keep to himself. After all, a person can only takes so much heart break .
I love the way, how the author brings Josh back and how he linked Josh's past to his present. It was rather shameful how his brothers had behave towards him although at that time they were still kids. But the one could also argue that his brothers are older than him. Who didn't the make the first move? Why should Anne be the one who made the effort?
It makes me sad to what happen to Anne and her family at the end. I wish the scenario would not be like that but am not the author.
Overall, I give it 4 stars out of 5. It's a good read but there are still room for improvement.
