Rating: This book wasn’t for me.
I received a copy of this book, free of charge, in exchange for my honest opinion.

This is a book that I struggled a lot with. Faith is such a deeply personal experience that I am not sure if my opinion even matters. I didn’t really connect with the stories of the people’s faith experiences. This may be due to the fact that I was never really sure what the book was supposed to be about. Originally, I thought that it was a collection of individual faith experiences. But as I began to read it, it sounded more Hallman’s journey to find it. In a way it is a book about both, but falls flat and lands nowhere.
Though there were a variety of people that tell their story, I felt that it was often repetitive. Besides that, everyone essentially said the same thing. I am very appreciative of the opportunity to read and review A Stranger’s Gift, I am sorry that I didn’t enjoy it more.
