James L. Rubart in his new book, “five Times book coverThe Five Times I Met Myself” published by Thomas Nelson introduces us to Brock Matthews.

From the back cover:  What if you met your twenty-three year old self in a dream? What would you say?

Brock Matthews’ once promising life is unraveling. His coffee company. His marriage.

So when he discovers his vivid dreams—where he encounters his younger self—might let him change his past mistakes, he jumps at the chance. The results are astonishing, but also disturbing.

Because getting what Brock wants most in the world will force him to give up the one thing he doesn’t know how to let go of . . . and his greatest fear is it’s already too late.

How many of us have ever thought or said, “If I knew then what I know now I never would have done that or said that”? All of us have regrets over decisions made in the past?  We feel that if we went back in time and told our younger selves not to do or say that we would be better for it in the future.

Regret is a huge mountain that lingers in the background; it’s the outline of many of our future decisions.  Sometimes it’s the foundation of many of our most intricately laid plans. Let us define “regret” as those things that are holding us prisoners to decisions and actions of the past.  These “regrets” keep us from enjoying the life that God has planned for us.  Before Brock Mathews can really fulfill his purpose he needs God to heal him of these regrets.  “The Five Times I Met Myself” is a very exciting book.  One that will keep you flipping pages trying to find out what will happen next just as fast as you can read and flip.  Everything is Biblical and Mr. Rubart is at the top of his game with his writing.  “The Five Times I Met Myself” will keep you asking questions, once you get the answer to one question it leads you to another and then another. Brock Matthews and the rest of his family are well written and you get involved with every one of them.  This is a just plain fun, exciting story that entertains as well as makes us think. Mr. Rubart has batted in a winner and I recommend this book highly.
