“The Reason I Jump”
Book Review
“The Reason I Jump” is a book that has been on my list for quite some time now. When we were instructed to do a book review and this was an option, I was pretty excited. The author of the book is a nonverbal 13-year-old boy with autism. I really feel that his primary goal of publishing the book was to bring awareness to autism and educate people on many experiences he’s had. I think sometimes we do take for grated that luxury of self advocacy. In Naoki’s case, he is nonverbal, but found a way to get his point across. I believe that many professionals and, in my opinion, everyone, should read this book because it is such a vital resource to really understand the emotions and the thought processes of a person with low spectrum autism.

Since he is nonverbal, there is not much of ability to express himself through words and he explains how that is something he struggles with each day. I think about coming home from a long, stressful day at work and “unloading” (I like to call it), on my husband about my day. It gives me a sense of relief to get the stress out by talking to a loved one and Naoki does not have that luxury that many of us take for granted. These instances, he tells us, are many reasons why autistic people do the things they do, such as, scream, lash out, etc. Another part of the story that really resonated with me was that Naoki explained many times how autistic people really do want to be social. Many people believe that autistic people don’t want to be social or just want to be isolated, but Naoki told us that is not true. He walks us through many social situations that have happened to ...

519 words - 3 pages intended audience. There are many issues presented in the book that go hand in hand with the bullying behavior such as divorce, consumerism, diet and more. I thought these issues were handled with sensitivity and not in a preachy way. It’s interesting to see the circumstances that lead to Butterball’s acting out and it made me more sympathetic to those who exhibit the same behavior.

The Lost letters of Pergamum Book Review - NOBTS New Testament - Book Review

1123 words - 5 pages report on a fictional book. I was a little skeptical about the book as I began to read it but the more I read, the more I gained interest and the more I learned. I am confident that The Lost Letters of Pergamum is a good tool to acquaint Bible students with the historic and cultural context of the early church. The book made learning about what life was like back then interesting. Although the letters were not true, I can now apply the mental setting I built in my mind to real New Testament settings such as Ephesus and Pergamum.
