Everywhere You Go There’s a Zacchaeus Up a Tree – is the kind of book that you can read a section or two/few and go back to it later. The book covers a lot of topics, and the author has a unique and interesting way of writing that is easy to follow and easy to keep up with.
I found it an interesting, encouraging, and inspiring read, a good companion to my quiet time either in morning or evening. The short stories can be considered a daily/weekly devotion style.
I value the straight-up wisdom, simple, no fancy words illustrations, this book contain. Some are touching, other are humorous but the most important each story is related to a Scripture verse. Also, I appreciate how in his columns the author combined his faith with numerous facts (or events) to give a positive perspective about life.
I was not familiar with Roger Campbell or his writings but I found myself embracing his style and views about life, faith, hope.
If you enjoy short stories of wisdom and wit this book is certainly for you.
I was provided with a copy of this book courtesy of Kregel Publishers.
A note from the book
Everywhere You Go There’s a Zacchaeus Up a Tree is an anthology edited by his son, drawn from these weekly columns. Based on Roger’s experiences in the world at large, the pastorate, his community, and his family, these brief but wise essays are enriching, instructive, and gently challenging. His warm words still bear witness to the truth that God meets us where we are and uses us when we are willing.
