You all know that I am in love with animals! When I was given the chance to read "The Dog Who Was There" by Ron Marasco, I was in! I couldn't wait for the book to arrive and once it did I couldn't put it down!
Here is a little about the book:
"No one expected Barley to have an encounter with the Messiah. He was homeless, hungry, and struggling to survive in first century Jerusalem. Most surprisingly, he was a dog. But through Barley's eyes, the story of a teacher from Galilee comes alive in a way we've never experienced before.
Barley's story begins in the home of a compassionate woodcarver and his wife who find Barley as an abandoned, nearly-drowned pup. Tales of a special teacher from Galilee are reaching their tiny village, but when life suddenly changes again for Barley, he carries the lessons of forgiveness and love out of the woodcarver's home and through the dangerous roads of Roman occupied Judea.
On the outskirts of Jerusalem, Barley meets a homeless man and petty criminal named Samid. Together, Barley and his unlikely new master experience fresh struggles and new revelations. Soon Barley is swept up into the current of history, culminating in an unforgettable encounter with the truest master of all as he bears witness to the greatest story ever told."
There have been many books written on the story of Jesus, but none quite like this! It puts a new twist on the story, a different view & adds a loving animal!
The book is so well written that I couldn't put it down! It has such a sweet message for the reader and really draws you in. Since it's written from an all together different angle it can appeal to so many readers. It's extremely heart warming and very touching. It's one of those books you think about days after finishing it!
I give this book an A+ and recommend that anyone read it!
