I have to say this is not normally a book I would read, I chose to review it because my dear hubby seen it in a CBD magazine and was very interested in this book. Growing up the picture of Jesus that was portrayed to me was a very gentle and meek man that journeyed thru life to save us from our sins. This book takes a deeper look at Jesus Christ, it looks at the spiritual battle that is going on unseen by us. He was more than just a teacher, he was fighting a battle for us by choosing to come down to earth and take our sins on his shoulders. Jesus came down to do a global rescue mission to rescue the lost.
If you are searching for your purpose in life, check this book out it will make you take a second look at what you thought was a meek and mild faith.
A great big thank you to Blogging for Books for this book for free in exchange for a review.

A very beautifully written love story based off of the books Song of Solomons and Ecclesiastes. Jed King, son of the famous singer/songwriter David King longs to follow in his father’s footsteps. Struggling to get his career started he takes a singing gig at a family vineyard festival. It is there he meets the delightful Rose Shepard, daughter of the vineyard owner. He falls in deeply in love with Rose, and she falls in love with him. They decided to marry on the vineyard in a small chapel built by Jed himself. It is on their honeymoon that The Song is born out of their deep love for each other.
The Song becomes the hit single for Jed and makes him the newest heartthrob singer. As his singing career takes off he balances his career and marriage. Time passes them and finds Jed spending more time away from home. When he does come home it seems like he is more of a distraction for his family than a husband and father.
Along comes a new singing partner Shelby Bale, a total opposite of his type of music; she adds a different kind of flair to everything. It seems Jed can resist the temptation that has been placed before him, but in a weak moment he falls for the un-forbidden. When his wife finds out about his indiscretions, she choses to walk away from their life together.
Will Jed be able to find his way back to his first love, Rose; while finding himself and healing for his marriage.
Many Thanks to Tyndale Publishers for providing a complimentary copy of The Song.
