Yesterday I got to read an interesting book of somewhat religious nature – “When Jesus was a Green-Eyed Brunette”. It is very rewarding to me to read about someone else’s walk in life, what they find important to them, how they found God, and how they interpret other people’s life and behavior. This book is about a life of a writer (Max Davis) who is finding God in his life in the most unusual places.
The most interesting parts of the book for me are the chapters about Max Davis’s son. I used to work in a company serving the deaf and the hearing impaired, helping them make those important phone calls that we, the hearing majority, definitely take for granted, but that can be a difficult task for anyone not able to hear. In that company we would receive calls from TTY machines which were essentially typewriters for the deaf that allowed them to communicate even when they couldn’t actually hear, or often speak they responses but instead could type them and then read them silently. Those TTY machines were instrumental for the deaf to be able to communicate with most of the businesses and agencies that they needed to reach by phone. I never realized fully that there are so many people among the deaf who cannot actually read English well enough to even be able to fully communicate, and it must be quite a feat for them to survive in the world that is dominated by the hearing people. Amazing to see the works of God in this book where Max’s son has to learn on his own mistakes how he can adapt in the world, and how, despite all of the difficulties, God finds a way to protect him, and stay on his side through it all – God always works in mysterious ways. It is a very peaceful idea to be a believer, and to know, and be at peace with the fact that there is someone out there who is looking out for you, and will always protect you, and lead you to the right path through all the trials. This idea can be very therapeutic when you know that you can put all your trust in God, and while you do what you can. there will always be a stronger force that can help you withstand what you are going through, and put everything together in this great puzzle of life.
So many encounters, so many different paths, everyone has their own story and ways that they find God through, so many events that take place, and they all lead to meeting and finding God. All the people with their stories are happy in their love to God, and peace that they find with their belief, despite the suffering that they have gone through, and the difficulties that their physical life has brought them through. It is absolutely enlightening to read – Jesus comes to people Max meets in visions, in live personifications, in many divine encounters – this would not be possible without believing. I find it humbling to read what some people get to see and experience – God has his mysterious ways of getting through to people, and heal the deepest wounds. It is definitely a comforting thought.
About the Book:
When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette weaves heartwarming and miraculous stories of Jesus showing up in ordinary people, revealing that He knows us and is fully present in our everyday circumstances, especially in our difficulties. Those hurting and weary from worn-out religion are longing for a fresh touch from the living Jesus. Best-selling author Max Davis challenges us to do more than simply receive God’s grace—we need to allow grace to soften, change, and shape us. As you read this book you will laugh, cry, and come face-to-face with the living Jesus, much like Davis did, when he found Him living in a green-eyed brunette. As Davis puts it, “Jesus is very much alive today and still does incredible things—sometimes supernatural things—through us!”
