The genre of this book may be difficult to define, but any effort to do so can be a celebration of God's grace, rewarding for those who may thirst for a better way to define their relationship with a living and personal God. For some, it will appear autobiographical, steeped in references to personal struggles, lost direction, forgotten dreams. For others, it may be only a confessional narrative journaling the need every man has, a silent urging to escape the pain and burdens inflicted by a twisted allegiance to some sin, an onerous darkness that has enslaved. For still others, it can be a book of sermons outing a familiar text from which truth might be gleaned. The truth is, Gift Revisited chronicles a journey "back to Bethel," an experience many believers are destined to take. We people of faith often lose our way, whether defined by spiritual exhaustion or the weight of some misstep we have taken. A "revisit" to the places of a genuine encounter with God can result in a renewed sense of hope and a rewarding promise for the future.
