“The Map” is a book split in two parts. In the first section of the book, David Murrow develops a mystery story, where he is contacted by a Welsh Vicar named Benson, who asks him to meet with an old monk who knows of a route to Christian manhood.
The writer goes on to hunt for that guide. On several moments during the exploration, Murrow narrowly eludes the enemy and becomes more worried. David knows that the antagonists denote evil, but he has very few signs to recognize his opponent. He becomes conscious that the world requires this chart.
In the second portion of the work, the writer describes the three journeys every great individual must proceed through submission, strength, and sacrifice.
He examines several Biblical protagonists, such as Paul, David, Moses, and Samson and compares their stories to the map. He also suggests realistic strategies for combining these approaches into our history.
One of the significant lessons from the work to me was the thought that “When a fellow Christian names out our faults, we should reply with modesty, not self-defense”.
Having a bachelor diploma in Theology, I was initially suspicious that this work could produce something different, the so-called “Map inserted into Matthew’s Word”. But I have to admit that the writer made his point in a brilliant tone.
Overall, "The Map" is an extraordinary piece, worth reading and satisfying. The approach of teaching Christianity within a mystery story is very compelling.
The publishers sent us this thriller and a "Christian theology" book for an uncompromised review through the Thomas Nelson Book Review Bloggers Program, the new BookSneeze Program.
