U-Turn to Paradise: The Day-by-Day-By-All-Day Journey to Achieve a Lifetime Destiny by Marilyn D. Alcorn is a comprehensive self-help guide book for those who are looking toward building from scratch or strengthening themselves through the Christian faith. Alcorn has truly created a veritable encyclopedia honed for the Millennials of today, a generation she explicitly references and reaches out to in the text. Still, with a map showing how to get from earth to heaven, hundreds of scripture excerpts and context, personal and profound testimonials, songs of worship, and the path paved by Christ and compiled in this book by Alcorn for those wanting to enter paradise, this guide has something for absolutely everyone who approaches it with an open mind and an open heart.

Marilyn D. Alcorn shows her enthusiasm throughout while providing vast knowledge in an approachable format. Having her book sectioned through an outline as a map to heaven, scripture is applied as the ultimate guide on how to do a complete 180-turn which is, of course, where U-Turn to Paradise aims to help you. Alcorn also imparts lively and relatable commentary that she weaves through each section (hint: Check your mirror!). For me, it was the anecdotal stories that stood out and it was inspiring to read about those in the Bible and others that Alcorn gives testimony for who have made their own “U-Turn”. It is clear that Alcorn is a great fisher of women and men, and I believe her book will do well within its genre.
