Insightful and captivating
Mr. Arthur weaves a captivating tale following Jason Faircloth. Blaming himself for the death of his wife and daughter, he begins to doubt his understanading of God. The story follows his search for his granddaughter and his search for a deeper understanding of God. In the process, he addresses numerous questions including--why do people often give up on God when things in life go bad? His journey brings into question the nature of The Church in much of the world today. If you enjoy Christian fiction, this novel is a must read. Overlooking some minor Point of View issues, I didn't want to put it down till Jason's searches ended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Recommended, but not for children
Although I cannot say that this is one of my favorite novels, or that it is something I would readily recommend, it does deal with a important issue: Corruption in the Church.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Although I cannot say that I have seen legalism on the rampant scale that it is portrayed in the book, I will readily admit that I have come across various people who struggle with it - myself included.
Legalism - I think it mostly stems from pride. From not being willing to have grace with our brothers and sisters in Christ who might not be on the same page with us in some areas.
(Obviously, this does not apply to salvation areas - what I am writing about here is matters of conscience.)
For a variety of reasons, I would not recommend this book for children.
My rating: 7 out of 10 stars
