Book Review - Almost Heaven by Chris Fabry
“Almost Heaven” by Chris Fabry is a wonderful fiction book that takes place in a small town in West Virginia. The main character, Billy Allman, is just an average guy who has a sincere heart for God. Billy uses the God-given talents he has been given to live his life spreading the Good News to all who will hear. And while his life is dedicated to God, he does not have an “easy road” ahead of him – God gives him plenty of struggles to deal with along the way. But God also gives Billy a guardian angel to watch over him.
This book is written in a way that you feel as if you’re a part of the story. The book also shows you that God loves to use “normal” people to help accomplish His purposes. You don’t have to be the smartest, or the richest, or be the best speaker to be used by God. All you need is a sincere love for God and He will guide you along the way.
I highly recommend this book! I thought it was wonderfully written, hard to put down, and just an overall GREAT book! I’ve never read any of Chris Fabry’s books before, and this isn’t the kind of fiction book that I would normally read – but I can’t wait to read some of his other books – especially “June Bug” and “Dogwood.”
