Wisdom Hunter by Randall Arthur

Wisdom Hunter is a book written along the same lines as The Shack. The biggest difference is Randall Arthur tells a much longer, drawn out story.

Pastor Jason Faircloth is a legalistic pastor. He has driven his daugher away. Because of his rigidness, both women in his life die.

The rest of the book deals with Faircloth's search of his granddaughter he's never met. He travels around the world, getting arrested and meeting interesting people while God works on his heart to break down his rigid religiousness.

The ending is one for the movies, but the rest of the book is so long and boring, you'd wish you could just pick up The Shack again.

I guess everything that happens to Jason Faircloth is for a purpose but, while reading it, you find yourself wishing he'd find this girl.

I suppose it's built around real life: you wish you didn't have to go through the process to get to the end result.

This book was provided for review by Watermouth Multnomah Publishing Group.
