Open: Get Ready for the Adventure of a Lifetime
By David Gregory / Tyndale House
Fresh off the heels of a devastating breakup and floundering in her career, Emma Jameson is struggling with her faith. Then a mysterious envelope arrives with an odd message: “For a real adventure with Jesus, go through the nearest open door.” Skeptical, she steps through the pantry door—and is instantly transported back to the first century! 128 pages, hardcover from Tyndale.

Open is a fictional account of an individual’s travels back in time to discover the basic truths of the God’s Word. Each instance reveals a little more and takes them a little deeper to the answer of their question and reveals the truth in what they have always believed. They see the actual events of the Bible unfold before their eyes with Jesus at the center. Jesus even guides them in between the events that they witness firsthand.
Open brings a human real-life perspective to things that happened long ago, but can be associated with the events of today and our daily walk in life. It causes the characters in the Bible to appear even more real to the reader. Open is a journey that is well worth the read. I recommend Open to all!
