I don't know what I was imagining when I first got this book. Maybe some how-to about seeking the face of God. Or another Christian Life book that might have a nugget of insight in the midst of the same old formula. Whatever I was thinking, this book landed on my doorstep and hit me... or rather I hit it... sometimes like a brick wall.
This book was hard to get into at first. I wasn't familiar with Matt Papa and struggled with what direction this book was headed in. What was his point exactly? About half way through, it hit me... It all comes down to keeping our eyes on Jesus. Everything else around us is just a reflection of his glory, just a mere hint of His true image. It all pales in comparison to beholding His face.
It was at that point that I really hit a rhythm with this book. Papa's illustrations became more vibrant, and his words were clearer. It really is all about keeping our eyes on the Lord and nothing else. Everything else is a faded reflection.
