“The Right Way” is the autobiography of Robert O. Russell. He takes us through the events of his life, always within the scope of how God was involved. Through the loss of his father at a young age, sexual abuse, and various downward spirals, Russell has been able to see God in every event in some way. His hope is that his story will reach out to someone who may be going through similar struggles, helping them to find or see God.
Mr. Russell is not the most eloquent writer. I would imagine he writes just as he speaks, which actually gives his story a very down-to-earth feel. The grammarian in me (years of grammar drilled into my head in my school years) found this a bit frustrating at times, especially at the beginning, but I adjusted… and I’m glad I did. Mr. Russell was very brave to be so open about his experiences. Many would not have the strength. I’m sure his story will touch many people. His openness will likely lead people to search for Jesus, whom he puts the focus on throughout the book. He does not get into theology, just his life with Jesus and the things he’s experienced. It makes for a very good read.
I give this one 4 out of 5.
