Heroes and Monsters: A Book Review

About The Book:

Heroes and Monsters is an unforgettable memoir of passion and redemption, a ragged look into a world at once wildly twisted and profoundly beautiful, an expos

In this stunningly honest, thoroughly unconventional, and ultimately hopeful book, Josh James Riebock explores issues that form us into the people we are--issues of family, love, intimacy, dreams, grief, purpose, and the unexpected stops along the journey. With artful prose and vivid storytelling, he shows that pain and beauty are so inextricably linked that to lose the former costs us the latter.

If you're grappling with life's inconsistencies and trials,
If you're searching for an encounter with something real,
If you're craving a story that's just a wee bit odd . . .

Heroes and Monsters is a fresh and exhilarating perspective on the uneven nature of life, and the equally uneven people who inhabit it.

About The Author:

Josh James Riebock is a sought-after speaker at conferences, colleges, and churches across the country. The author of mY Generation, he lives with his wife, Kristen, in Texas.

My Review:

Not since reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, have I read a book with such vulnerability. Heroes and Monsters is stunning and needs to be read in a slow manner in order to really be impacted by each word written. It is a raw look how in our deepest hour, God is there and loving on us each step of the way, as long as we ask Him to. It is beautifully and honestly written and absolutely stunning illustrations throughout the book. It is one book that I will be telling my family and friends about for sure. The book covers all the inner turmoil situations that we all experience at some point in our lives and the reminder that God is with us always, especially in our brokenness!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
