Book Review: Walls

I recently had the opportunity to read the book Walls: Why Everybodys Stuck (and Nobody Has to Be) in exchange for a review.  I was provided an advanced reader's copy of this book in exchange for this review.

The Berlin Wall. The author likens the walls in our lives to that fortress that separated two sections of a city for so many years. But how do we change? How do we overcome the obstacles that surround us? In this book, Ryan Rush shows us how, or at least attempts to. To me it felt more like a book of encouragement with lots of Scripture and some great stories than a how-to book on overcoming whatever it is that you're facing. Rush is the father to a special needs child and her medical complications allowed me to not feel like he was some preacher who had no idea what real life can be like, but that he knows the hurts and pain that can come with life. While I can't say this book gave me any practical advice on how to knock down the walls in my life, it was inspiring and I very much enjoyed the stories of others, and I would say it's worth reading this book just for those.
