A beautifully written yet information-rich allegory about how to discern the will of God, "The Trail" is an interesting and powerful story by pastor Ed Underwood. Matt and Brenda are a younger married couple who are seeking to know what God would have them do in regards to a job change Matt is considering. They embark on a journey through the wilderness (literally) with a retired pastor and fire fighter named Sam, who teaches them eight principles to discovering God's will. Along the way they experience deeper truths than they expected, as secrets are revealed and hidden pains come to light. Will Matt and Brenda find what they seek?
I really enjoyed this book. It was a pleasant and interesting way to communicate some truths about a relationship with God. Matt and Brenda's story is a common one and is certainly relatable, and there are deep truths to be found in the principles and verses applied here.
