God’s Cook Book - 1 Recipe 4 All is a work of non-fiction that focuses on a powerful message of Christian living and was penned by author Pastor Donatien. The author himself has been a senior pastor in Madagascar’s social and religious movements, based in the revival movement of Ankaramalaza. Through this heritage, the author comes to tell his life story and experiences of Christianity, which include speaking in other languages and dealing with unwanted emotional and sexual feelings so that he could follow the path of the Bible--not just the only way that he saw correct for his culture and time but for all humanity as well.
Author Pastor Donatien shows a clear passion for subject matter throughout this intense guidebook and partial memoir on Christian living and godly life. There are themes that some readers with modern sensibilities may find distressing, but as a personal account of discovering his true self through God and Christian teachings, Donatien’s narration is raw, honest and delivered from a place of real belief in his faith. I enjoyed these personal accounts far more than the elements discussing perceived global problems, but there will be an audience for both, and the volume is very well organized with crisp prose and a good range of quotations and citations to back up the arguments. Overall, God’s Cook Book - 1 Recipe 4 All presents a joyous account of a very specific viewpoint of religious salvation, and one which followers of the Christian faith will find interesting and enlightening to read.
