This review should have been posted a long time ago but did not make it for reasons I cannot remember. Let me now present the review for a fascinating book!

Faith is not fiction. However, Lynn Squire has used fiction to illustrate just what true faith really is. Best of Faith, Fiction, Fun, and Fanciful is a collection of short stories, poems, and prose that truly shows faith in action.

The book is divided into three sections, ‘The Human Condition’, ‘Our Journey’, and ‘Where Freedom’s Found’. Although parts of it seem more devotional than just fiction, it all fits together like life’s human puzzle. Is our faith as strong as it can be, or are there areas that must be worked on? Lynn takes us up one hill and down another on the journey of humanity.

Ever feel guilty about finding something that could be valuable? Or do you take it and run, use it or dream of using it, for your own personal benefit? “The Briefcase” is a short story that runs the gamut of emotions. How does Harry Dunsbury handle this tricky situation?

Out tending the animals is sometimes a good place to find inspiration. But what animal is best for this? Balaam had his, but who will this mysterious narrator’s inspiration be? Do animals really talk or is that imagination going wild? Find out in “Literary Aspirations.”

What is faith? Is it in the work we do, or the life we lead? The answer may be found in, “Faith by Works, or Works by Faith.”

Within a succinct 184 pages, Best of Faith, Fiction, Fun, and Fanciful is a roadmap of the role God plays in our lives. Each story and poem is written in the same easy-to-read style. No words are wasted, nor are there any left out. Lynn Squire has a very clean, and smooth delivery. The human condition is laid bare but done so with an undertone of true devotion. Do you really believe or are you just fooling yourself? Read this most enjoyable work and see just how you feel about your own personal faith and beliefs.

  2. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading this book by Lynn Squire yet, but have read other things she has written. She’s an excellent storyteller and has a deep desire to help others grow in a saving faith. This book is definitely on my reading wish list!

  3. I’ve read a couple of Lynn’s short stories and found them both fascinating and inspiring. Lynn has a guift for revealing the human condition and relating to God. I want to get the book.
