BOOK REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Try Dying by James Scott Bell

I found James Scott Bell!  Of course, he probably did not know he was lost.  What I mean is that after years of reading any Christian fiction I could get my hands on, somehow I missed Bell’s excellent suspense books. 

My favorite thing about Try Dying, is not the mind twisting plot or the author’s gift at building suspense.  It’s the fact that the lead character makes me laugh outloud.  Ty Buchanan is a LA Lawyer that through tragedy has to face life’s limitation and little by little finds glimpses of God.  Fortunately, for me and my warped sense of humor, Ty’s a bit obnoxious. This first book, Try Dying is more serious but  each book in the Ty Buchanan series makes me laugh even more.

In the book, Ty finds God in bits anf pieces.  I like salvation stories that seem to grow gradually rather than come crashing like a lightening bolt.  Faith is a gift but sometimes it shows up through our struggles with God.

Have a good time and discover James Scott Bell in Try Dying.
