U Turn, God Turns: The Journey, The Messages...Conqueror! by Michael Vincent Robinson is an interesting journey where the author takes readers along the path of his life. The book gives a good view of his journey and his faith in God which helps him overcome the problems he faces. The book is a useful guide that can be referred to by readers on their destined journey. The power of prayer in our lives is reiterated in the book where the author reaffirms that worship and prayer will help in unlocking many doors. God's handiwork in creation is praised in the book and his support in transforming one's life is inspirational.
It is an uplifting read, though not excessively religious or spiritual. There are motivational quotes from the Scriptures which constantly remind you of the presence of God and His divinity. They are used in the right places, adding to their effectiveness. The signs and wonders of God in our lives are like a ray of hope for those who are lost. The interesting concept that runs through the book is that if you turn, God turns to make your life more fulfilling and enriching. The book is an excellent read and I would recommend it to readers because it gives a broader perspective on God and His supreme power. The author's fears, trials and triumphs also encourage readers to communicate their inner difficulties and find a solution to resolve them peacefully.
"I've known Bro. Robinson for a couple of years now, and have always known his worship to be very unique, genuine, and authentic. After reading U Turn, God Turns, I understand why. As men, we tend to hide our true emotions, feelings, and praise. I thank Bro. Robinson for allowing God to use him to be transparent through his testimony and through his worship. As you read this book, you will not only see how God has shown favor in Bro. Robinson's life, but also how He has shown His grace and mercy upon yours." ---Michael R. Holley, CEO Holleywood Homes, Pikesville, MD
