Review: Of Moose and Men by:Martin/Peterson
About the Book:
Torry Martin—a comedian, actor, and hippie—fled from California to the wilderness of Alaska, searching for answers to life's big questions. He found what he was looking for...and a lot more!
A moose got its head stuck in Torry's window. A reindeer was trapped in his kitchen. A bear almost prevented him from reaching his airplane. He once woke up frozen to his cabin floor.
Like the Israelites of old, Torry experienced plenty of miracles and mishaps in the wilderness. And like them, he came face-to-face with God and was changed forever.
Each of these true stories of Torry's hilarious blunders and misfortunes contains a nugget of truth, but one theme prevails: If God can reclaim and repurpose Torry Martin's life, He can do the same for you and those you love.
My husband and I love watching all the survival reality television shows. We just really enjoy it. It is almost like taking a virtual trip and getting to live vicariously through the people on the television screen. Of Moose and Men, I can sort of relate in the same way because we get to live through the author's experiences in the great outdoors.
The quirky stories of the author's experiences in Alaska made me laugh out loud but it also made me pause and think this would of happened to me and my family, for sure. It's fun sometimes to just sit back and realize what God has brought you through. What is so ironic is, is that you didn't think it was so funny to begin with. As I sat and read the author's words and imagined him there through all the trials and difficult situations, I myself could see God's hand in everything.
A great book to read when you need something or someone to laugh at!
