This parable is about a person, ‘Ordinary’ who decides to leave his hometown of ‘Familiar’ to follow his dream. He is presented with many obstacles, which anybody pursuing their dream will encounter, and the book is written in an easy-to-follow and quick-to-read style.
Though the author writes from a Christian perspective, the only time this is apparent is for a little while mid-way through the book. Generally speaking, you can replace ‘God’ with any other universal energy that resonates with you and the words will still feel right… because having dreams is universal to all people.
A friend recommended this book to me at a pivotal time in my life… a time when I am pursuing my dream to help people grow spiritually. I am grateful to have found it when I did, and I am sure that one of you reading this right now will also find it to be the right book at the right time in your life.
