Greg let me have a sneak peek at the whole book, Lost Boy, before its release and it was truly epic!
It was unfair, though. I got it on a Saturday while preparing my Sunday morning sermon and I thought, “I will just read a few pages and finish it later.” Nice idea. Before I knew it, I was halfway through the book and I was behind on my message.
The rest of Lost Boy was just as riveting. It moved at a great clip and never bogged down.
Having had the pleasure of actually knowing Greg Laurie as a friend and mentor, I can say that Lost Boy truly allows you to see who he really is. It’s not just a diligent chronicling of his history so much as a rollercoaster ride that enables you to see and feel who he really is as his story races by. It’s kind of like a biography on Red Bull!
One thing’s for sure, this book will show you that the singular passion in Greg’s life is to know God and make Him known. In Lost Boy, Greg expresses his deep respect for Billy Graham and how highly he esteems him. Greg has been someone that I have looked up to in that way. As a pastor and as an evangelist and as a person, he is someone whose footsteps I want to follow, and I know I that I am not alone.
For the thousands who have been impacted by Greg’s ministry, Lost Boy will be an opportunity to see “behind the scenes” in his life and get to know the man behind the pulpit.
