book_03A week or so ago, at the recomendation of my good friend Jamie Arpin-Ricci, I picked up Scared, a novel by Tom Davis. I will leave you with the trailer of the book, in stead of trying to explain it myself, but I will tell you that it had me from the start.

I began reading the book at 6pm and by 6pm the following day I had finished all 270 pages. If you know me, you know that I like to read, but I am not a speed reader by no means. The only other books that I have read in full over a 24 hour time span is C.S. Lewis “The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe” and the book of Jude (haha).

I have cared deeply about justice issues for a long time now and Tom brings these issues to life through his writing. There was a time at the beginning of the book where I thought it was a bit to Christian (that sounds bad) in that I felt Tom was forcing God in there, but after reading on, God became the center of the story. It all of a sudden made sense that he was in there, it wasn’t forced at all. Tom showed Gods heart for Justice like I have rarely seen before in writing or movies.

Have you ever read a book or seen a movie and while reading or watching you keep thinking of people to email and recomend the book to? This was me while reading Scared. I kept thinking of my friend Ingvar who loves to be moved by books. Amy, my wife who cares deeply about photography and Amanda, who cares about Justice and bought me a great book on Justice once (Mountains Beyond Mountains).

I want to leave you with a plea. My plea is that you would buy this book. It is Toms first novel and he has done a remarkable job on it. Also, when you have finished reading please recommend this book to someone else. Finally, if you are on Twitter follow Tom.
