The first in a series, Bill Myers goes out of his way to show that God chooses the foolish of this world to confound the wise. Who could be more foolish than this motley bunch of people who inhabit a pod in an insane asylum? One of these unfortunates can mindlessly quote anything, to everyone's annoyance;one thinks he is a Superhero;one steals medicine from all the others; and yet another holds conversations with inanimate objects.

When a new amnesiac inmate comes, he starts to discuss the forbidden. He tells the others they are each special and loved by God. He uses physical acts of throwing away lists to show the others how God removes our forgiven sins from us and doesn't bring them back again.

So many wonderful truths the amnesiac (Max) is able to share with the other patients until the higher authorities decide his influence over the others is too strong, and he will be sent to an especially harsh prison. And the physical action commences!!

Quotable: "It's not about rules, Ralphy. Remember? It's about relationship. If I love someone enough, I'll just naturally try and do what's best for the relationship. It's love that changes us. Not rules."

Read this book for the comedy, read it for the great truths presented simply, read it so you'll be ready for the next book!!

I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review. ( )
