Ravi Zacharias opens his newest release, "The Grand Weaver", with this question (actually, it's on the back cover, but IT'S GOOD!):
"Are the threads of our lives accidentally tangled or intentionally arranged?"
He then goes on to paint a beautiful portrait of a life ordered by God, with every thread carefully woven into the tapestry of who we are as God's creation.
Covering topics like how our DNA is important to who we are, how even our disappointments make a difference in this divine tapestry, Ravi puts together an all encompasing look at how every piece fits into this thing we call our lives.
I loved the chapter on morality. Too often we think, either sub-consciously or consciously that because we're believers we can get away with just about anything, as long as it isn't too big. But it matters, and it's time we were aware of just how much.
This isn't a repeat of Rick Warren's best seller. Ravi goes deeper, delves into the richness of Scripture and of other great writers, blending in personal anecdotes and a bit of reasoning to create a resounding response to our post-modern way of thinking.
I will treasure this volume of wisdom. It is not a book to speed through; like a rich cup of coffee, it is to be sipped and savored, and visited again and again.
I give "The Grand Weaver" five out of five bookmarks with a small woven charm of my own design. If you wonder if your life matters, pick up this book.
