God's redemption is for all. Especially those least able to help themselves

patsbury5 Stars Out Of 5Divine **excellent read**January 30, 2015patsburyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was such a good read.
It showed how people today are in bondage to sin with all the hurts that fall our way. We become trapped in the sin and how it binds us . Gave the message of God and his love to those of us who are willing to open our hearts and that those of us who can encourage should use the gift God has given us. God allows us things in our lives to help others.
I fell right into the book became their characters, felt their hurts and wanted them to grasp hold of God's love right then and there but knew there always has to be a process ..I couldn't put this book down. It was one of the best books that I have read by Karen Kingsbury.
DyscypleSaint Albans, WVAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Not Quite KingsburySeptember 1, 2012DyscypleSaint Albans, WVAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I must say that this is one of Karen Kingsbury's better books in regard to theology, doctrine, and true Christian living. Although there were one or two parts (statements, really) that do not agree with Scripture, the rest of the book is quite accurate in a biblical sense.
In all, okay, most, of her other books, Kingsbury tries way too hard to express drama. She attempts to make a dramatic situation out of the most trivial, least emotional occasions. However, I do not think this is the case for Divine. I do feel she prolonged the story somewhat and had a bit TOO many "bad things" happen (not to say that they *can't* happen, but in a book you sometimes need to say 'enough!'), but it's not nearly as severe as in her other less biblical books. I found myself saying, "Oh, come on!," only once or twice. Otherwise, I COULDN'T PUT DOWN THE BOOK!
Also, in her other books, the majority of her characters are so ridiculous in action, thought, and word in order to (attempt to) make the story more dramatic (but it really makes it barely tolerable to read). But in Divine, she hit on reality; the characters seem more real, with more realistic reactions and emotions.
She relayed the love of Christ exceptionally, as well as redemption, forgiveness by others (Christians), and the love of Christians and the fact that they WILL be different than the world.
I do recommend this book for older teens (17+) and up due to the very mature content (not necessarily graphic, mind you, but enough to make you shake your head, cringe, and sometimes tear up because you know it happens to people!).
