Believe in Me for I Am the Way is a work of non-fiction focusing on the Christian faith and the search for peace and balance and was penned by author Richard DeGiacomo. In this well-structured work on Christian living and belief, the author discusses the many benefits of following the ways of Jesus Christ as a means to cope with modern life. Discussing important factors such as the existence of God, the meaning of true happiness, and our right to choose in a world of free will, this is a work that Christians can rejoice in and take much heart from.

Author Richard DeGiacomo has created a useful work of non-fiction which I could easily see on the coffee table of many Christian households, always there for a moment’s reference and a renewal of faith in difficult times. The search for peace and happiness can be difficult in modern life, and the author acknowledges this with his empathetic narrative, like a counselor speaking to a person truly in need. This compassionate voice extends into the advice and arguments put forth in the work, not preaching but convincing, and compelling with good evidence and quotation. I particularly enjoyed the section on hope and overcoming difficult times, which was handled with a great deal of understanding and used well-constructed, inspiring phrases that stick in the mind. Overall, I would certainly recommend Believe in Me for I Am the Way to all readers who need guidance on how to learn from Jesus and find peace in their lives.


Believe In Me is an easy read for all ages based on the beliefs of the Author and the Bible. If God has not been a presence in your life and you are contemplating or would like to begin your religious journey Believe in Me will certainly give you the confirmation and will to pursue your new meaningful lifestyle. If you already believe enjoy and be inspired.
