"The Wisdom of the Sheep Walker" by Sydney Avey

Book Description

 November 30, 2013
A companion to "The Sheep Walker's Daughter" by Sydney Avey, this journal collects the counsel of Father Mike, an Anglican priest who walks alongside Dee Moraga Carter as she grieves the changes in her life and the death of her mother. In his study, in a restaurant over a cup of coffee, or on walks through the orchard behind Saint Matthew's Church, Father Mike opens the mystery of faith to Dee by asking her questions instead of giving her answers.

My Review:
"The Wisdom of the Sheep Walker" by Sydney Avey  is only  52 pages long! It is filled with Biblical Scriptures taken from " The Message"Bible along with questions after the quotations.  I have given"The Wisdom of the Sheep Walker" five stars. I paid $1.99 for this book because I have been given an Advance Reading Copy of "The Lyre and the Lambs" for an honest review and I am the type of reader if I am going to read a book and if  there are others in the group I have to read them all. So after this review is written I need to read"The Sheep Walker's Daughter" and then "The Lyre and the Lambs". 

The questions really makes you think! The thing that is so great after the questions the page numbers are written so you know where they were written in the story! 

Even if you don't read the "The Sheep Walker's Daughter" I believe the questions will help you on your own quest to know God better!

I am going to end this review with one of the questions asked in this book, I would love to know your answer !

"Assume there is a God. What is the one question you would like to ask Him?"
