Leap of Faith, by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley

Somebody or other on-line suggested that Kimberly Brubaker Bradley's Leap of Faith is a good read for younger readers, and is also excellent about the subject of the title, namely believing in God.

Whoever you are, you were right. For what it's worth, the book's Amazon page currently has five reviews, all of them giving it five stars.

As usual, I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but I will say a couple of things about the book, namely that sixth grader Abigail is put in Catholic school, against her will, and comes to love it, and, eventually, to believe in God for forgiveness. Bradley has written it from the Catholic viewpoint, but the book should appeal to all Christians. She has described an authentic conversion experience, from the viewpoint of the main character, without making it sappy or preachy.

One of the things I like most about Leap of Faith is that it has been marketed to the general public, not to a Christian sub-culture.

Thanks for reading. Read Leap of Faith!
