Hear No Evil by Matthew Paul Turner

Hear No Evil is the hilarious retelling of Matthew Turner's journey from a fundamental Baptist upbringing to discovering grace and music. This memoir shows us, with deep candor, the inside of growing up in this kind of rigid environment. We see the benefits of family and the destructive tendencies when we try to live without grace.

I originally requested this book to review because I thought my musician husband might enjoy it. As I began reading it, I would catch myself laughing out loud. I ended up reading most of this book out loud to him as we went on a trip. It is fabulous. His humorous storytelling was at times very convicting and freeing to me. It reminded me that we are on a beautiful grace-filled journey towards our Creator. I highly recommend this book.
