Review by Lynn Loper

This book was labeled 'Urban Christian Fiction', and it's a genre with which I'm utterly unfamiliar.

Given that: this is the kind of book you see lining shelves at the drugstore. It's a factory story. Someplace there's a publishing house that has a box full of characters. You pick some, then some characteristics out of another box, and some situations out of yet another, and you mix them all up, and you have a story.

The characters are one-dimensional, the situations are out of soap operas, and there are a large number of product placements (why wouldn't I be surprised if they're not from the Corporate Overlord Company that owns the publisher?) in the book. Not much happens by the last page you couldn't have predicted from the very first.

The religion and theology preached in it are very shallow, but any religion is better than none, at least to me. But if the religion is the pill in the piece of cheese, the pill is really big and there's not nearly enough cheese, and what there is, is Velveeta. It's very difficult to recommend this.
