8. On pg. 253, Matthew says, “I think we’re given room in this life to make choices, and that includes making bad ones from time to time. No matter how sorry we may be, we still have to pay the cost.” What decisions was he referring to in his own life? What were your original feelings about Matthew at the outset of the book? How had they changed by the time this scene occurred?
9. On pg. 294, Jack Brennan (a main character in Remembered, Book 3) reads off a list of names of people they had buried since the outset of their journey. He begins by listing Jonathan Wesley McCutchens, then continues on. The names listed here are actually names of Tamera’s relatives and friends who have passed on from this life to the next. These people are part of the “cloud of witnesses” in her life that she “hears” cheering her on in this earthly race (Hebrews 12:1,2). Who are these people—the “cloud of witnesses”—in your own life?
10. On pg. 298, Annabelle awakens during the night and experiences a moment of profound growth, and grace, in her life. Read that passage (five paragraphs before the break) and discuss the implications that forgiveness had on her life. How do you forgive someone who never asked for forgiveness in the first place?
11. On pg. 318, Matthew has an unexpected moment with his father, and his father says to him, “You did good.” On the back cover of Revealed, you find this inscription—Words, once spoken, can mend a broken life…or cripple it. But words left unspoken can haunt the soul, inflicting a far deeper wound. How did words (both those spoken and those left unspoken) impact Matthew’s life? How have such words impacted your own?
12. And finally, we come full circle to question #1 – what was your favorite scene in Revealed?
