About the Book

God gave me the idea for this book in 2018 and it's purpose is to draw those who do not know God or who have not yet had an encounter with Christ closer to him. This book was written to encourage someone to give their life to Jesus and receive eternal salvation. The target audience for this book is teens ages 13-18 years. Hence, the short length. However readers of any age can get something out of this book. In terms of content, it is a coming of age novela about a young man named Solomon (Sully) born in Queens, growing up in Brooklyn with a widowed mother and younger brother named Paul (Pully). As a teen, Solomon struggles with understanding who God is and what his duties are as a child of God. On his 16th birthday, he receives a Direct Message (DM) from God on Instagram and this serves as the catylyst for the series of adventures he takes throughout the rest of the book. By the end, readers will see how important it is for us to have faith in God and trust that he has a purpose for each and every one of us.
