One Call Away by Brenda Warner

One Call Away by Brenda Warner

This book chronicles the life of Brenda Warner, the wife of NFL player Kurt Warner.  Brenda is very honest in her writing about the challenges that she has endured thus far in life.  Her life, like most people, has not turned out the way she planned.  I want to believe that Brenda’s intention for this book was to be an encouragement to others who are facing difficulties and show them that the Lord has a plan for their life.  I believe that Brenda had a real opportunity to really connect with readers but I felt that she missed the mark.  At least she did with me.        

I struggle to write a review as I thought this was a Christian book not just a book that would casually mention God.  I felt that Brenda did not give God the glory He deserved.  She has been through a lot but the Lord has blessed her in so many ways.  I also felt she was little too detailed in certain areas and there were parts that could have been left out.  While I certainly understand that Christians are not perfect I disagree with how she so nonchalantly disregards sin in her book.  I do not want to judge her, as the Lord is the ultimate judge, but I just cannot recommend this book to others.

  1. I agree 1oo% with your review! It was a difficult book to read, and at times it read like a tabloid. I wanted to enjoy it...but it lacked inspiration. Good review.
