Only God is rated 5 stars by those who have purchased the book. Here’s what some of the reviewers have said:

5 Stars – Encouraging and Inspiring
“We wonder how the everyday joys and sorrows could possibly be transformed into something of the holy, yet this un-put-downable account whisked me away from the daily to the divine. As two regular folks trust in the unseen one, they notice how his imprint on their wounds grows blessing from defeat. When our hearts ache and groan from the wrongs we see around us, this is good news indeed for a weary soul. Come and see! Larry and Jean came before us to point the way. I’m so glad this is published in time for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in the USA. My dad is going to love it; I can’t wait to talk to him about it when it arrives.”
5 Stars – Faithfulness
“This is a heart warming story that you will want to read. It is a tribute to the faithfulness of God in Jean and Larry Johnson’s life and their commitment to Hm through the good and difficult times. Grab a cup of tea and curl up on the couch for a most enjoyable read and discover all the Lord is able to do through surrendered lives.”
