The BookViral Review:
“I believe my path was known by God all along. He patiently and faithfully never gave up on me and my life.”
Robert Beverly’s soul-searching and faith-affirming memoir “Jesus & The Girl In The Orange Bikini’ delves bravely into the unscripted events which drive our lives, using an honest and often self-deprecating account of his own life.
We journey with Beverly through romance, business and personal grief, where he doesn’t shy away from his life’s self-confessed blunders; instead, his honest and unflinching narrative will not only resonate with people of faith, but with all of us who use coping mechanisms to function in the wider world whilst searching for a sense of purpose to put us on our intended path. For Beverly, it was an encounter with Jesus.
Using a biographically arranged perspective, the tapestry of Beverly’s life is woven seamlessly through the book, expanding with snapshots of his life which round out the characters, past and present, most important to him and the lasting impressions they have made on his life’s journey.
The one constant since his encounter with Jesus has been his faith and here he is deeply reflective. He doesn’t ask his readers to simply believe his story. He knows many will dismiss it as a figment of his imagination but he tells it with such emotionally charged observations he leaves us in no doubt that his encounter led to his own personal salvation, and set him on the path to help others do the same.
“You never know where your path in life will take you, with all its highs and lows, heartbreaks and good times, laughter and sadness. I think that is the essence of life and what makes it worth living”, says Beverly. It’s not a glib statement but a testament to the power of belief and one on which we would do well to reflect. And it’s enshrined in the direction his life’s taken which with the guiding hand of Jesus has allowed Robert, Laura and Paulie to start life over.
A powerful read “Jesus & The Girl In The Orange Bikini” reminds us that whilst each of us is unique it is often a higher power that dictates the direction of our lives. A read to return to when life’s unscripted events threaten to overwhelm us, it is highly recommend.
