The Cost of Carelessness: Don't Fail the Test by author Jeff Booth with Terri Booth is part Christian memoir and part spiritual reflection.

As readers watch Jeff get to know his cellmates, attempt to navigate the Japanese legal system, and wonder if he'll ever get home, Jeff draws out spiritual truths to apply in our own lives. Connecting the theme of carelessness with deeper spiritual themes, Jeff Booth instructs readers in discipline and vigilance in their faith, discussing themes of spiritual testing, standing fast in faith during trials, battling spiritual forces, repentance, and mind renewal. The Cost of Carelessness will point readers to God's faithfulness while renewing their fervor in faith. Christian nonfiction; Christian memoir.
