  1. THE DEARLY BELOVED is a stunningly beautiful book – incredibly thought-provoking and lyrically written. As I read it, I frequently marveled at Wall’s prose and marked numerous passages to go back to in the future.

  2. Thank you for your review.
    Now I am intrigued & will check out this book.
    I, too, am not a religious person.
    I’ve tried to be, & it never really felt true.

    I think Ivy is maturing, & finding out petting is such a wonderful thing! She is less distracted now, than she was as a kitten, and more likely to seek out your touch more often. I bet she will end up being a very affectionate cat! I must confess, I wish she was my kitty! Lucky you!

  3. Sound like an interesting read, Brenda. I think I might enjoy it although I don’t consider myself a “religious person”. I do feel that I have a spiritual side and I explore that in various ways. I will have to see if my library has this new book. Glad you enjoyed it and wrote about it.

  4. Well, Brenda, it is good You are not “religious” because “religion” does not Save You – it does not bring You to God – To His Salvation – Only the Lord Jesus Christ does through His Mercy and His Grace – Through His blood shed for All of God’s Elect – God gives the Faith to believe this through the preaching of His Word, His Truth – That Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God’s Truth – the Bible – God opens His Elect’s minds and their eyes to hear and (see) believe the Truth of what Jesus Christ did on the Cross. It has nothing to do with religion – We are not saved because of what we have done – We are not saved because of what we have not done – We are not saved because we think we are a good person or not – We are saved (reconciled to God) only because Almighty God has shown Mercy to us and given us Grace to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and All that He has done – We cannot earn this Mercy and Grace – We cannot work our way to this Mercy and Grace – This Mercy and Grace are a gift from God through the Lord Jesus Christ – Jesus Christ came into this world to save sinners – As the apostle Paul in the Bible said and so I reiterate, “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15 🙂 b

    1. PS I must add here, that if anyone thinks they commend themselves to God by keeping His Law, think again. God demands perfection of His Law and none of us can keep His Law perfectly. Only the Lord Jesus Christ kept the Law of God perfectly, in thought, word, and deed. That is why we look to Christ for our Righteousness (our Right standing with God), because “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” Romans 10:4 The LORD bless and keep His Elect. 🙂 b
