Mindful of HimChance events—the source of all that was or ever would be in the universe—has been a reasonably comfortable view for Rob McLain during the past two years in college. As he watches his parents’ caskets being slowly lowered into the grave, he wonders about his decision to discard God in favor of enlightenment. Without a belief in God, whom can he blame?
Besides his questions and his rage, Beth, his wife of nine months, is all Rob has left. Warm, loving, optimistic—Beth is the only source of light in Rob’s life now. With her, he might be able to make it through the next few months; without her, he is completely hopeless.
Following a shocking turn of events, Rob is stripped of everything he holds dear: marriage, friendship, and his future career. Embittered and empty, Rob relinquishes the last of himself and embarks on a wilderness journey to follow the Canoba River to its beginnings. At the end of his quest, Rob discovers the source of the river and someone he never expected—the Source of all truth.

My review of Mindful of Him:
While this story turned out to be very interesting, the thing that really captured my attention and kept me turning the pages was Hollis’s vivid and detailed descriptions. He did not miss a single detail and he really let the reader be involved in the story. I loved the care and attention to detail. It tells me that the author really cared about his readers’ experience with this book. I always appreciate that.
So after what I felt was a bit of a shaky start to this book, I ended up really enjoying it and getting a lot out of the experience. It is definitely a unique book and well worth taking the time to read it.
