Frank Viola is a non-Catholic Christian who’s main mission is to draw people to encounter Christ in simplicity and honesty. His latest book is titled God’s Favorite Place on Earth.
The premise of the book is simple and Bible based. Frank observes that when Jesus was on the earth, He was rejected everywhere He went . . . from Bethlehem, to Nazareth, to Jerusalem. The only exception was the little village of Bethany. So he tells the story of Lazarus, who was raised from the dead, and is now ready to die. He recounts the story of Jesus’ interactions with him and his sisters–Martha, and Mary. God’s Favorite Place on Earth blends drama, devotion, biblical narrative, and first-century history to create a moving and thought provoking book.
Here’s what I’ve written about the book:
“The heart of the Christian faith is not simply allegiance to a book or obedience to a set of rules. Instead it is a profound transaction with Jesus Christ. Frank Viola re-tells the tale of two sisters and a brother who encounter Christ within both their ordinary existence in a small village, and their human drama of suffering, life and death. With the skill of a compassionate preacher and skillful teacher, Viola draws from the story of Mary, Martha and Lazarus lessons from life that will lead the reader to his own life-changing encounter with the King of Kings—Christ the Lord.”
