Praise for "The Great Good Thing"

Publishing trade magazine Publisher’s Weekly has given high praise to my conversion memoir The Great Good Thing: A Secular Jew Comes to Faith in ChristThey call it “compelling” and “a fascinating story of a life journey.”

One line in the review did bother me, I have to admit. The book is practically a love letter to my wife who stuck with me through early years of madness and despair into a second act of astounding joy. Somehow, the review translated that into this sentence: “Marriage added to the complex picture, filling the author with a despair that would lead him to seek professional help.”

As you can imagine, I have been following my wife around the house for days, reading that to her over and over again. Only one of us finds this hilarious.

The book is out from Thomas Nelson in September, but you can pre-order it here.
