The Scroll by Jeffrey and Gansky is an easy pick for a lazy afternoon read. The main character, David Chambers, has lost hope and in the midst of personal and occupational turmoil. As a result, he doesn’t seem to like himself, God, or his life much at the present. But like real life, David Chambers’ story shows how often, in the most unlikely times, that one’s perception of God’s presence and faithfulness are refreshed and rejuvenated. David’s anger isn’t as resilient against hope as he thought it was. There are elements of intrigue and mystery woven in the plot of The Scroll, but at the heart of it is the redemption of a man’s faith and purpose.
