The Room of Marvels - A Book review

Books are a great joy of mine and I recently read one that I’d like to recommend to you. It’s called the “Room of Marvels” written by James Bryan Smith. It’s a fictional account of a ‘sort of’ true story of a man who had sufferedthebook of marvek through the deaths of three people who were very important to him. The deaths had come close together and had knocked him into a depressed and cynical state of mind. In an attempt to re-orient his life he embarked on a five day silent retreat. While on the retreat, he was swept into fantastic dream of a trip to heaven. The climax of the dream was an afternoon spent in the room of marvels.


I won’t spoil it by telling you any more than that except to say that it’s worth a read. In fact, if you’re shaky on the significance of your life or grieving the loss of someone close to you, this book would be a great encouragement.

If you pick it up, let me know how you liked it!
