The Road To Renewal Annotated by Kirby Lee Davis

A Rich Experience

The Road To Renewal Annotated by Kirby Lee Davis is a marvellous, updated edition of The Road To Renewal – but this is so much more! It is beautifully presented in a stunning hardback copy. The front cover is very tranquil, inviting the reader to step inside.

In this annotated version, the first two thirds are the story and the final third is the notes to accompany the story. We learn about the background to popular culture in the 1990’s and earlier as well as famous figures, biblical references and the author’s background and upbringing. It is all vey interesting and brings the story to life. Reading this version is a rich experience and one which I totally enjoyed.

I received a free copy from the author. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.

Here is my original review of the book:

The Road To Renewal by Kirby Lee Davis is a Christian novel that certainly messes with your head. I enjoyed it, although at times I found it hard to get my head around the action – what was real? What was imagined? The novel was certainly realistic as it showed the battles we all have inside our head as our spiritual side wars with our flesh side.

When life hits hard and keeps hitting, what do you do? “It’s [the cross] the only hope I’ve got.” Sometimes we find ourselves clinging on and just surviving more than coping. It’s at times like these that we really need to keep focused on the cross and remember what Jesus did for us.

Life throws choices at us. We have decisions to make, paths to choose and consequences that follow. We need to fix our eyes on Jesus and try to respond how He would. If we mess up, we must not beat ourselves up but learn the lessons, forgive ourselves and move on.

Within the novel there is much Godly advice and lessons to be learnt. My favourite is “I don’t follow Jesus for reward. We follow Christ because we love Him.”
This is a book that needs to be read more than just once as I believe that even more Godly insight will be revealed on subsequent readings.

A word of caution… there is a character who is troubled and is not a Christian who pops up briefly and does use a four letter word that some readers may not like.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
