Review of Golf's Sacred Journey

This is easily one of the best books I've read this year.

The book, at first, reads like a book about golf and one man's struggle to make it as a pro in the PGA. But toward the end of the book, the story takes off on a whole new level.

I will not spoil the reading experience by telling you how the book ends. Suffice it to say it is well worth the read even if you don't like golf or sports.

The book is about finding your place as a child of God and discovering that freedom and purpose in life only come from discovering your true self as a child of the living God through Jesus Christ.

"Golf's Sacred Journey" is the wonderful true story of how God freed the author from the trappings of success and the lies of the dreams of life - whatever shape or form it might take - without Christ. 

The story takes place in a small town of Utopia, Texas where the author finds himself at the end of his ropes. In Utopia, he meets Johnny - a retired golf pro. But Johnny is much more than a retired golf pro. Through Johnny and his unorthodox teaching methods, the author comes to discover his true potential as a golfer, but more importantly, his true identity and purpose as a child of God.

I read the book in two sittings, and I am certain you too won't be able to set it down.

So make some time for yourself, find a quiet place, and let God speak to you through this book. I am confident that you will be blessed as I've been blessed through David Cook's journey in Utopia.
