While riffing through some books that I own but still haven’t gotten to pick up yet, I came upon Marcus Hurst's "The Box Top Life's Puzzle". From the very beginning of the book, I was already intrigued and captivated. I'm sure there are many that would agree with me especially those that are into philosophy and religion. While it’s not my usual reading material, I found myself hooked and it definitely aroused my curiosity.The historical facet of the book was really what drew me in. It’s a quick read but it had such a propitious speculation. Marcus Hurst uncloak his right smart spell of his research and put on a thinking cap mainly to give reasons behind the existence of humanity and what we are truly here for. Basically it talks bout the foundation for all meaning of entity. This book intends to help readers fathom and make sense of the recurrently and refuting fundamentals of withstanding life and making choices. What I like about this book is how readers are granted a choice to either accept or put up a struggle but doubtlessly opens up your mind to a lot of possibilities.This is not your typical story about good and evil. Overall, we can all learn a lot from this book and the author has set a very high bar for himself although I am positive that whatever he writes next will be even better and I can't just wait for that to happen.
The Box Top to Life’s Puzzle: Explanations for the Mystery of Life by author Marcus Hurst embarks upon a journey of philosophy, religion and discovery, revealed by the author over decades of his pondering and researching the reasons behind the existence of humanity; as he attempts to answer the age-old question of “Why are we here?” The basis for all meaning of existence, Hurst grounds his logic squarely rooted with many excerpts from the Holy Bible, along with his original articulation of his conviction of his indelible faith in Christianity. Obviously, as one would expect, a great many scriptures are woven throughout the text. Yet a surprising amount of thought, descriptions and background within these pages also deals with Satan, the conflict of good versus evil and the choices of free will man is given by the Lord.Just as directions to a destination are made more clear with, for example, a road map, The Box Top to Life’s Puzzle is intended to be on the same higher level of clarity; helping readers to piece together the often confusing and contradicting elements of going through life and making choices by seeing the “big-picture” outlined in front of them within his remarkably laid out pages. With the galley text providing clear quotations, bullet-pointed highlights and a sequential “flow” of logic cascading from chapter to chapter, readers are proposed a scenario in which they can either accept, argue or disbelieve, but certainly cannot ignore and will be captivated by Hurst’s unambiguous presentation.Analogous to a treasure chest, within the sparkling brightness of jewels and colors are nuggets of gold and diamonds. The book is spaciously laid out to be read easily and in my case during one sitting, whereas I read it again a few days later prior to writing this review - and enjoyed it more the second time. This type of book is ideal to share with friends or loved ones, or can be used in a book club or church group as the basis for discussions. I found from the onset, with quotations from King Solomon to the intricacies of the working of the Devil, how consistent Hurst’s faith has guided his understanding to reveal to him the meaning of life. After all, isn’t that what we all are seeking and truly wish to know?
