Tara Lappas5 Stars Out Of 5September 18, 2007Tara LappasThis is an excellent book that defines the difference between religion and faith. Religion being outward works you think will earn you a place in Heaven and faith being the gift of salvation which motivates you to allow the Holy Spirit to change you and grow in you the fruits of the Spirit...love,joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness etc. to become more Christ-like.All that said, the language is a bit old and it doesn't flow as easily as a modern novel.But I wouldn't let that stop you. I learned much about that particular time period and was very inspired by the faith acted out by this young girl.I highly recommend this book.
