Religious books aren't really my thing. I've read a few, but the use of God as a major turning point for the character always makes me feel uncomfortable. It's hard for me to believe that such a thing is possible.
Sometimes I wish my brain wasn't so logical.
Occasionally, a strange thing will happen in my mind. I'll be looking at something, discussing something, something as simple as fingerprints or plants, and suddenly, I'll think, What a unique, interesting idea. How did someone think of that? I get the same thoughts with books, as if the thing isn't real, just something that someone amazingly thought up.
It's a scary thing. Almost as scary as imagining yourself dead and there being no afterlife.
Religion is not something that would suit me, but religion and God are not the same. I have some faith that God is far more loving and forgiving than some would lead you to believe and that good people will not burn in Hell no matter their beliefs, but it is thin, like mist. I want something rock-solid, or, at the very least, to make peace that whatever happens with death, will happen if God is involved or not.
And that is why I chose this series for the first Wonderful Week of the summer. Here's to hoping it'll give me just the right insight.
Have you read these books?
