Through this clever “role reveral,” Field powerfully reminds believers that the world is watching, and they know when our words and our lives don’t match, or when our words simply can’t be trusted. In fact, they often know even before we do.

Author Ed Stetzer offers a Review of Squat

Author and church planter Ed Stetzer recently offered this review of Squat:

I am not typically a big fan of Christian fiction. Too many insanely perfect people, implausible situations, and impossibly happy endings. I like fiction that rings true, not trite. That’s why I am impressed with Squat. First, Field writes from his experience– one who has lived and ministered among the homeless for a long time. The book reflects the reality of homeless life lived up close. Second, Field knows the pain of the street and is not afraid to share it with the reader. It is that pain which makes us hurt and empathize. Finally, it rings true. It tells a gritty story in a way that is plausible and engaging. It’s a great read.

Brent Thomas has written an essay entitled An Interaction With Squat and A Meditation on Fiction on his blog Colossians Three Sixteen. The essay offers some very insightful comments about the power of fiction to communicate a message. He also offers some very thoughtful comments about Squat

Field gives a brief insight into the many hours of real-life wrestling behind them. Knowing the context in which he ministers, Field has made a point without having to explain his point. Field has succeeded in reminding why, in the right hands, fiction can be so powerful.
