Finding inspiration and motivation in spiritual and bible-based writing was hard for me. Everything I read felt fake and way too deep to keep my attention. I have struggled with faith and prayer, seen my share of hardships and simply longed for someone to talk to about it. And then there was Alan. Through his candid insight and humor, it's like sitting across a kitchen table sipping coffee and feeling understood. He brings a reality to faith that puts it on our level, not something huge that we have to achieve, but something human, something we'll lose and regain, something we will question and find security in. Alan has inspired me and motivated me in many ways through this book and I thank him for sharing his life, his thoughts, and his faith with the rest of us.

Just what I needed! The Quest For Virtue is a treasure to keep me grounded in God with real, day-to-day scenarios. When I read the pages of Alan's book what goes through my mind is, "Wow, he has said what I feel. He knows where I am". Not only does his book show you practical everyday life but it leads you to think through your experiences in life as you see them on paper and encourages you to learn how to change your perspective accomplishing the goal of growing closer to God. His gentle way of writing is honest, forthright, and packed with truth and power.

The Quest for Virtue is a quick, yet meaningful read. Alan pulls together multiple themes of the Christian life: self-sacrifice, empathy, courage, etc., offering his personal journey as a guide for others desiring to grow closer to God. This book is a great resource for the difficult questions and answers life brings you, yet it is neither pedantic nor prescriptive. It is a story of faith, from one soul to another.
5,0 su 5 stelleA thought-provoking read which provides practical opportunities for character development and growth.
