It is well written: clearly, humorously, honestly, andempathically. We owe Thorne an enormous debt for courageouslyopening his heart, mind, and soul to share the truth about a lovingGod walking with his people. It has been a privilege to review abook that amounts to his magnum opus, and I hope I have doneit justice.
