501 Minutes to Christ is a collection of personal essays written by Poe Ballentine. They are in the first person viewpoint, as one would expect with stories that are taken from the author’s real life experiences. This book is not one of those Christian inspiration books that include short stories that attempt to restore a person’s faith and make them feel uplifted. It is not a book of prayer.
The title of the book comes from a small piece of one of the personal essays. In it, a man is standing in the doorway of a church holding a sign that says “501 Minutes to Christ”. No further explanation is given by the man holding the sign, or the author writing about it. You are left to come to your own conclusions about what exactly that was supposed to mean.
