What if time could talk, to let us know
When we stop, that is when we go
Would you count the days and ponder sore
Or sing God’s praise and know there’s more
The Number of Days explores eternity through the life of a young boy who has a gift with numbers. Christopher sees numbers as people, each digit having gender and personality. Following the tragic death of a young girl who he adores, he questions God’s fairness. With the help of an unlikely hero, he begins to understand that humans were made for eternity.
I love this book and can’t say enough about how rich it is. Growing up in a small town during the 60’s it brought back so many memories and feelings that I hadn’t thought of in years. Though it’s written through the eyes of a young boy, it’s not necessarily a children’s book. It’s deeper than that but still easy enough for a young person; so much like the gospel that way. You’re not going to want to put it down and you’re going to want more. You’ll read through it way too fast but try to go slowly and absorb it. The ending just blew me away!
