And every Christian should read this book . . . if nothing more than to know the marks of a true believer.
similar characters as in the book. I laughed out loud at the antics that took place although I found
the situations unpleasant in real life. The lesson for me is Don't
take life too seriously.
That says a lot coming from someone who doesn't go to church or live in a small town. His characters are charming and easy to relate to, and his talk about church life, morals, and God are inclusive. If you find Jan Karon's Mitford a little heavy-handed with the evangelizing, this series may be more your speed.
In this book, we are shown more of Sam and see him struggling with some very human failings. Sam takes some time off to care for his father, and while he is gone a student minister named Krista takes his place. Between Dale Hinshaw's rantings that a woman is leading the church, Fern's ire over Krista's involvement in the big Chicken Noodle Dinner event, and Sam's jealousy over the welcome that people give to Krista, we get to be along for the ride as Harmony's residents struggle with change in the church and try to triumph over their personal failings.
This is a light and easy series to read and is very uplifting. I read it in a day - I just didn't want to put it down - and finished it feeling inspired and refreshed.
This latest is highly recommended.
