The Encounter by Stephen Arterburn--Book Review

The Encounter by Stephen Arterburn (Sometimes God has to Intervene)
ISBN 978-0-7852-3195-0 Published by Thomas Nelson

This is a wonderful read...and a quick read. I read it in just a couple of days. I did want to keep reading to find out more.

In The Encounter we meet Jonathan Rush. He's a wealthy entrepreneur whose mother gave him away when he was a young boy. This fact has eaten away at him for years. He heads back to Fairbanks, Alaska in hopes of getting his questions answered on just why his mother would abandon him.

With the help of a reporter and a mysterious hermit type woman named Mercy help him on the journey.

This book is written in a form that I enjoy reading. One chapter is about Jonathan and what he is doing. The following chapter is about his mother and what she went through, and is going through.
Wonderful ending to the book.

In the back of the book is a section entitled The Truth Behind the Fiction. Following is a Solitude and Discussion Guide.
I recommend this reading!
