What People Are Saying About Blurring The Lines…

 

May 04, 2012 Derek Penwell rated it 

In his new book, *Blurring the Lines*, Jerry Zehr gives us a peek inside mind of Thomas Anderson, a young man on a journey of self-discovery that leads him from the promise of Hollywood’s bright lights to the seedy underbelly of the drug scene in the late 1970s.  The thoughtfulness with which Zehr draws Thomas’s struggles invites the reader to confront what it means to find one’s identity far from home, as well as to consider the way spirituality both consoles and challenges us.

The tumultuous life of Thomas May 21, 2012 by J. Fischer

Jerry Zehr has penned an exciting glimpse into the many influences that constitute becoming a well-learned, well-rounded human being. In “Blurring the Lines,” protagonist Thomas, granted, has more experiences both good and bad than many of us hope or wish to experience (ie, discovering himself spiritually, aiding and abetting in drug running, finding himself in the middle of serious gunplay, etc.).

What Zehr has captured, however, is the unflinching determination that describes lead character Thomas. While illustrating a life well lived, Thomas also has not lost — save for a few brief instances — his sense of self and grasp of what is right and wrong. Along the way he searches desperately for answers to feed his spiritual soul. What a great ride.

If you’re looking for answers that can only be found in tomes of conservative spirituality this may not be for you. If, however, you’re looking for realistic answers to life’s multiple curve balls, many of these answers can be found between the covers of “Blurring the Lines.” I can only hope that we haven’t heard the last from Thomas or Jerry Zehr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Title, April 21, 2012 by Julie Mondary “Julz” (Cincinnati )

This review is from: Blurring The Lines (Kindle Edition)

This book not only tells a great story with a glance at the seedy side of life but brings an understanding of oneness’ with God, religions and self. Many authors try to achieve this through inspirational writings, Zehr hit it perfectly. A must read in my opinion.

 

You GOTTA Read This One! April 26, 2012 By Lizzy D.

Format:Paperback

This book reminds me of an event that was popular when I was in college– Theology on Tap– where a Catholic priest would hang out at the bar, have a beer, and answer questions about theology…

The book Blurring the Lines is similarly insightful, intriguing, and unpretentious. Blurring the Lines is both fast-paced and deeply thoughtful. It tells the story of a young actor who is faced with difficult choices as he tries to break into the cut-throat entertainment industry. During his life journey, he learns valuable lessons about who he is as well as who God is… It’s a crazy but powerful adventure!

I highly recommend it.

 

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Theology, May 2, 2012 by C. M. Anders “Mickey Anders” (Lexington, KY)

This book is a good read containing good theology. The plot moves well, especially in the last extended episode involving Mara, which involves good suspense. Into the mix, the author inserts a positive, wholesome, open theology, which will be welcome by many readers.
