Book Review: The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Seen

First things first because I need to preface this review. I do not align with a lot of beliefs of Lisa Gungor and her husband Michael. I do not know what it is like to go through a deconstruction like they have processed. However, I did enjoy the book and her thoughts regarding her spirituality.



Lisa’s writing is easy and familiar at the same time. She speaks with eloquence and you can tell she has given a lot of thought to the words she has penned. Throughout the book we are given the background and the experiences that have made Lisa who she is today. We learn what it means to experience a crisis and come face to face with a child having a genetic disease.

I cannot give this book the typical Christian endorsement. In fact, I would lean to it being more about spirituality than Christianity because, really, we do not hear Lisa say that she is of the faith. She seems alright with that and understands the issues that it can bring.

If you want, read this book to get the memoir of an artist who has left the Christian faith. Do not read this book expecting great theological truth. I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review. The words are my own and have not been influenced in any manner outside of the written manuscript.
