Praise for Lessons from the Carpenter
“As if he were a master carpenter skillfully restoring a beloved piece of furniture, Brewer takes a familiar story and breathes new life into it. With clever insights and skillful prose, the author demonstrates how the early life of Jesus the Carpenter shaped the life–and death–of Jesus the Savoir. Superb! I wanted more.”
–Wayne Holmes, author/compiler of Whispering in God’s Ear and The Embrace of a Father
“The well-known saying, ‘It takes one to know one,’ applies to this powerful little book. Michael Brewer was a builder in his youth, working with his carpenter father. Then he embarked on a lifetime study to know Jesus the Carpenter. In this book, he shares abundantly his insights into the life and teaching of Jesus, the master builder. Each page is chock full of insights and nuggets of wisdom.”
–Millard Fuller, founder and former president of Habitat for Humanity International
