Anyway, it’s a small novella about a girl named Mattie who sits next to a guy on a plane. They strike up a conversation and suddenly she’s spilling her guts to him. Well, there’s a little more to it than that. Here’s the synopsis from Random House…
On board the plane, Mattie strikes up a conversation with a fellow passenger. When she discovers their shared scorn for religion, she confides her frustration over her husband’s recent conversion. The stranger suggests that perhaps her husband isn’t seeking religion but true spiritual connection, an idea that prompts her to reflect on her own search for fulfillment.
As their conversation turns to issues of spiritual longing and deeper questions about the nature of God, Mattie finds herself increasingly drawn to this insightful stranger. But when the discussion unexpectedly turns personal, touching on things she’s never told anyone, Mattie is startled and disturbed. Who is this man who seems to peer straight into her soul?
Yes, who IS this man?! Well, if you haven’t guessed, you will after a few chapters. It’s not a escapism novel. It’s more of a thought provoking essay on the existence of God set to a fast paced hypothetical conversation.
If you’re a question-er or a straight up unbeliever, it might be an interesting read—to get a different perspective. If you’re a Christian, it’s a good read to get you out of your normal worldview.
