Popular author James W. Moore recalls how several years ago, while delivering the sermon at his church one Sunday morning, he had told a moving story about a boy and his dog. The authorâ€™s then-five-year-old son, Jeff, was fascinated by the story, but feeling a bit uncertain about some of the details of it, during the familyâ€™s car ride home from church, Jeff asked his father, â€œDaddy, is that story true, or were you just preaching?â€
Highly amused by Jeffâ€™s question, Jim Moore went on to explain to his young son that there are two kinds of stories: TRUE stories, stories that happened factually in history; and TRUTH stories, stories like Jesusâ€™ parables, which are shared to underscore a dramatic truth in life.
The several short chapters and stories in this book are designed to highlight such life-truths, with chapter titles such as â€œGo out Singing,â€ â€œRoadblocks,â€ â€œShould I Forgive?â€ â€œOne Step at a Time,â€ â€œWhoâ€™s in Control Here?â€ â€œWhat Can One Person Do?â€ â€œTell Me, Please, How to Be Happy,â€ â€œWhy not You?â€ â€œKeep on Keeping On,â€ â€œJesus: The Message and the Messenger,â€ â€œThe Importance of Uniqueness,â€ and others.
This book contains a discussion guide.
