The Man He Never Was by James L. Rubart

Book Description

What if You Woke up One Morning and the Darkest Parts of Yourself Were Gone?

Toren Daniels vanished eight months back, and his wife and kids have moved on—with more than a little relief. Toren was a good man but carried a raging temper that often exploded without warning. So when he shows up on their doorstep out of the blue, they’re shocked to see him alive. But more shocked to see he’s changed. Radically.

His anger is gone. He’s oddly patient. Kind. Fun. The man he always wanted to be. Toren has no clue where he’s been but knows he’s been utterly transformed. He focuses on three things: Finding out where he’s been. Finding out how it happened. And winning back his family.

But then shards of his old self start to rise from deep inside—like the man kicked out of the NFL for his fury—and Toren must face the supreme battle of his life.

In this fresh take on the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, James L. Rubart explores the war between the good and evil within each of us—and one man’s only chance to overcome the greatest divide of the soul.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

NFL player Toren Daniels just couldn’t control his anger, no matter what. But when he wakes up in a hotel room, not remembering where he’s been for the past 8 month, his anger is gone. This throws Daniels on a whirlwind to find out where he’s been for the past eight months, as well as prove to his wife and family that he has changed! But with his family believing Toren is dead, they have moved on.

I have to admit, I’ve never read Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, but this author did a very good job of describing what it is about throughout this book, so it was easy to follow the parallel of the two stories. I though I had this plot firgured out, and I actually did get part of it right, but getting to the bottom of Toren’s story and the end of book, author James Rubart takes readers in an unbelievable journey that will stick with you for a long time! Rubarts books are the only fantasy type books I read, and I read them because I love the way he takes Bible principles and a character  like Toren with his severe anger issues and weaves them together to show God’s love, mercy and forgiveness. His expertise knowledge and research for this story is evident in each scene in this book. Sometimes I had to just stop and wrap my mind around all of the details before reading further. I found “The Man He Never Was” an amazing book on God’s love. If you enjoy books that strongly applys Bible principals to the lives of the characters in a fantasy type way, you will love this book. And if you have never read a book of this genre, this would be a good one to start with!
