A Brief Review of
Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus
Reviewed By Gina Dalfonzo
Many of Mary DeMuth’s books have been easy to categorize: novel, young adult fiction, memoir, self-help. Her newest book, Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus, is not quite so easily pigeonholed.
As its title suggests, Everything’s themes are wide-ranging and comprehensive. Is it a guide to Christian growth? Another self-help book? A spiritual autobiography in the vein of C. S. Lewis’s Surprised by Joy or Karen Swallow Prior’s more recent Booked?
In truth, it’s all of the above, and more.
