Me Too brings awareness to the reader that they are not the only one going through what they are facing at this moment. There is at least one person out there which can say “me too, I have also experienced that”. Maybe they have not experienced the exact same situation but they have been through something that is similar and they can relate to it. There is also someone else that can say “me too”, that is Jesus. He has been there and experienced the hurt, the pain, the rejection, the anger, the love, the loneliness…He can say to all of us, “Me too”.
Me Too looks at different areas and situations from three distinct view points; The Cross, The Church, and The City. It covers abortion, fear, violence, materialism, our relationships with each other and God…and much more. Jon Weece reveals how he is also a “me too” person, just like the rest of us. I was deeply touched by all of the chapters, but there was one chapter that made a bulls-eye and that was the chapter on fear. It helped me identify a bit more with my weaknesses and something that has been with me all of my life. I recommend Me Too, it greatly surpassed my expectations.
