Book Review: Finding our Way Home

Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich is a disappointing book. I originally picked this book to review because the story line sounded interesting, and because I like some of the authors who gave it a positive review. However, this book did not live up to my expectations. As I have stated before, when I read a "Christian" book I expect it to at least mention Jesus Christ or at least to be about someone who will meet Jesus Christ or will grow as a Christian based on what Christ did on the cross for us.

Finding Our Way Home was not about trusting Christ but more about how Sasha (one of the main characters) should have listened or trusted in her snow globe (talisman or good luck charm) to lead her. How awful is that in a supposed Christian book? 

Based on how many times the word grace is used, I'd say the author is trying to teach us about grace through Sasha and Evelyn. However, grace apart from Jesus Christ is meaningless, so I think the author has failed in her mission. If just taking a few depression pills and becoming a nicer person is what people consider "grace", then we are heading in a very bad spiritual direction. I have always heard it said, "There will be lots of nice people burning in hell without Jesus Christ as savior!" I cannot recommend this book.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
