Rob Schneck has the gift of leadership. Growing up in the 70’s he converted from nominal Judaism to evangelical Christianity. His faith journey took him through a variety of roles: van driver and lay preacher at a shelter for heroin addicts; Assembly of God pastor; activist in the anti-abortion movement; supporter and leader of the religious right; minister to a number of top government officials and now founding president of The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute.
Rob’s memoir is an honest account of one man’s struggle to fulfill his God-given calling. He freely admits his failures (lack of attention to his family, being influenced by pride and prestige, being judgmental, etc.) I think most Christians who are seeking to grow in faith will identify with Schneck as he wrestles with God, allowing himself to be changed and molded in the process.
Verdict: I couldn’t put this one down. It’s a new release so you should be able to borrow or request it from your local library.
