Dead Dog Like Me by Max Davis

I chose this book because of it's funny name, and hoping it would have a dog, and not disappoint.

Nick is depressed. He misses his wife, Abbi, horribly. Nick is also pastor of a megachurch. Nick's precious dog, Deuce, saves him from killing himself right off the bat! He is constantly in pain, and horrifically depressed. The voices beat him up, tear him down, tell him how worthless he is and why he shouldn't go on anymore. When Deuce gets injured, it is the last straw. Nick decides he can't live anymore, he wakes up somewhere else. He wakes up long before Jesus had come, in 800 B.C! He isn't Nick now, he is someone else, and he is a cripple. He is in a time frame from the Bible. He has become Mephibosheth, a son of Jonathan and King Saul’s grandson. Nick is now infused with Hebrew as a language, and some way, old "fashioned" thinking about the one true God. It's just want Nick needs. Can a broken man, marriage, church, lives find healing and restoration? Will Nick live and die as Mephibosheth, or will he come back home somehow?

This was a wonderful read full of hope, healing, restoration, brokenness, grace, forgiveness and so much more! I'm far from disappointed. Carol :)

Nick Gregory regains consciousness after a horrific car accident to find he’s been transported back in time and that he has become Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s son and King Saul’s grandson. Aware that he’s experiencing another man’s life, he has to learn fast. When mega-church pastor, Nick Gregory, regains consciousness after a horrific car accident, he’s on the ground in agonizing pain. Nick realizes he is in a bizarre place – a foreign, parched, ancient land, having been transported back in time to 800 B.C. Unbelievably, he is in the body of a prince named Mephibosheth, a son of Jonathan and King Saul’s grandson. Nick is fully aware of who he is and that he’s now living in Mephibosheth’s body, strangely able to speak and understand Hebrew. This experience helps him see that he, like Mephibosheth, is a broken man desperate for God’s outrageous grace and healing (2 Samuel 9:8). Returning to present day, Nick’s experience motivates a changed life.
