Product Description

Product Description

A gritty, emotionally gripping story about forgiveness, family, and the sometimes tragically painful sins of the church.

Jack Bennett has a wife, two kids, the perfect job--and the perfect affair. When he is caught and it all comes crashing down, Jack is left with no one to turn to. No friends. No family, except his recovering drug addict of a sister.

On a Sunday morning drive, he sees a homeless man locked out of a church service, banging on the door. He stops and offers the guy a cup of coffee. He asks the man his name, and the guy says Yeshua. As in, Jesus.

Jack's not stupid. This isn't the real Jesus. But with nowhere else to turn, Jack forms an unlikely friendship with this eccentric homeless man--one that will test his idea of truth, faith, love, and forgiveness. 

And Jack is completely unprepared for the real-life twists his story is going to take.

I stumbled upon this book in my "Recommended Readings" section of my Amazon account and initially thought it was going to be a book version of "Fireproof." While there were some similar themes, this story was real, raw, gritty and irresistible. I was captivated by the characters and identified with several of them. It was a very human story. It seemed hopeless at times, but it ultimately points to that universal hope we're all so desperate for. Can't wait to see what else Brandon Clements releases to the world.

HASH(0xa0199e04) out of 5 stars On Par with "The Shack" July 28 2012
By Anne Piombino - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want to read a book that will shake up everything you believe about yourself, our American culture and Christianity, this is the one. More accessible than "The Shack", it addresses the same 'life will be brutal sometimes, and what does God/Jesus have to say about that' topic. The characters are believable, and you really feel like you could walk into the same coffee shop and meet them all. I will probably have to read it many times to get the full impact of the story, it's that deep.

By Kathleen Brewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are very few books in this world that still captivate me, catch me off guard, or make me cry. This book did all three in one fatal blow, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was sucked in from the beginning of the story. Every Bush Is Burning is a great read that will make you think, cry, pray, and laugh. I read it in 2 days! Not afraid to talk about ugly issues, Clements has crafted a great story of redemption that you will enjoy. I highly recommend it!

Summary:

Jack Bennett has a wife, two kids, the perfect job--and the perfect affair. When he is caught and it all comes crashing down, Jack is left with no one to turn to. No friends. No family, except his recovering drug addict of a sister.

On a Sunday morning drive, he sees a homeless man locked out of a church service, banging on the door. He stops and offers the guy a cup of coffee. He asks the man his name, and the guy says Yeshua. As in, Jesus.

Jack's not stupid. This isn't the real Jesus. But with nowhere else to turn, Jack forms an unlikely friendship--one that will test his idea of truth, faith, love, and forgiveness. And Jack is completely unprepared for the real-life twists his story is going to take.

My thoughts:
From the outset, this book intrigued me because of the writing style; it was different, and the author pulled it off well most of the time. The story is written as if it's a letter to a fellow patron of the coffee shop where Jack is penning his tale, a method I've never read in another novel. Though I'm sure it isn't a new concept, it certainly isn't common, which most people in the business will tell you to stay away from at all costs. Clements does a great job, with only a few sections that seem to go off on unrelated tangents. The only other criticism I have of the writing is that there are moments when Yeshua gets on a high horse and starts preaching, and it comes off as the author preaching a message he wants to get across rather than as a character truly interacting with another. Otherwise, the writing is crisp, and moves the plot along nicely.

The idea of Jesus himself appearing to Bennett was fascinating, and I had mixed feelings about it throughout. But by the end of the novel, my concerns were resolved, and I could look back over the journey of reading this book and honestly say I enjoyed it thoroughly. I also loved that these characters were outside of the traditional characters you typically find in Christian fiction, without being controversial just for the sake of pushing the limits. I found all of these characters to be realistic in nearly all their interactions and dialogue. And I absolutely loved the ending, but I don't want to spoil it for you.

Overall, I'd give Every Bush is Burning 4 stars, and I would definitely recommend it to others. I would also recommend it for readers 18 or older (personal taste) for the occasional language and sexual references.

Happy reading!

HASH(0x9d979e64) out of 5 stars Yup, that just happened. Oct. 22 2011
By Joel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have to admit. My expectations for this book were not that high, and I hope that I haven't offended anyone, but just to be honest, I wasn't expecting a great deal from this fictional story from a Christian perspective. I was greatly surprised and sorely wrong in undercutting Clements with such poor expectations. My surprise was only matched by my excitement in not being able to put the book down. It has been a while since I've read a Christian fiction book that I was incapable of getting away from. Clements pleasantly surprised me with his completely unique voice, compelling plot line, and tear jerking twists. Whether you've been a Christian for the past 20 years of your life, or whether you've never even heard of Jesus Christ, this book points out honest and deep truths in an easy to grasp way that is enlightening and captivating at the same time. Whatever your view of the Church, this book deals with the harsh reality of the existence of the church today, and does an excellent job of presenting the truth concerning the Bride of Christ. Every Bush is Burning is worth a great deal more than the 2.99 I paid for it, and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a heart jerking, down-to-earth, realistic work of fiction.
