A Book Review: Are You Playing By House Rules?

I recently had the pleasure of reviewing one of the most thought provoking books I've ever held in my hands. My belief system was challenged and a desire to know more about our constitution, written law and social security numbers was formed. 

Are You Playing By House Rules? by Darren and Cara Grant is one of those extremely rare treasures that educates and entertains, illuminates and inspires. It's a wonderful read. 

Joe Smith is a new believer who has just faced a major tragedy. Flooded with test after test, Joe struggles to stand in the face of such monumental trials.

It all begins with an accident in which his estranged wife, Mary, is injured. In the hospital, Joe's prayers for help and guidance are answered by the presence of Robert Forbes, a large Scottish man with equally large ideas. 

If Joe's world wasn't shaken enough by the aftermath of the accident, Robert Forbes stirs it up even more by challenging Joe's long held beliefs and equipping him with the information to make positive changes that will effect his future and the futures of those around him. 

This story is laced with a powerful agenda and packed with relevant research to engage and inform readers. 

When my kindle battery died four pages from the end I wanted to cry. I was that bonded to the story. 

The characters are believable and their motivations so clearly described that you would swear you've met these people in real life. 

Are You Playing By House Rules? is a powerful story with rich writing; a book functioning as a true conduit for change.  This is truly fiction at its best.

You can purchase this book on Amazon.

I also recommend stopping by the author's website at to test your worldview.

  1. Great post and I agree with every word. I read the book before it came to CWA and was equally entertained and challenged with the spell-binding page turner
