This is quite a tale. You could also call it The Gospel of Owen Meany. He truly was a picture of Christ, especially in death. It reminded me of Forrest Gump in some ways, too. I decided to read this book after seeing it on the Great American Reads list and having it recommended by a friend. Even though it is very long, it is worth the journey. I can just imagine Owen Meany and his voice perpetually at a screech. The narrator of the story is Owen's best friend Johnny Wheelwright. This is a tale of friendship, forgiveness and self-sacrifice told from the perspective of the late 80's, but focused on a fifteen-year span from 1953 to 1968. Definitely worthy of making the list.

TODAY’S THE DAY! ‘… HE THAT BELIEVETH IN ME, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, YET SHALL HE LIVE; AND WHOSOEVER LIVETH AND BELIEVETH IN ME SHALL NEVER DIE.” (John 11:26)
