DyscypleSaint Albans, WVAge: 35-44Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5Edge of Honor by Gilbert MorrisOctober 10, 2016DyscypleSaint Albans, WVAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1I love Morris' books, but I do not recommend this one to anyone. His books are usually pretty biblically sound, but there is one, (yes, only one that I recall, but it's very important) incident and one statement that is so off base. Quentin, apparently a Christian, is going to operate on an unsaved man's son. The man's name is Faye. Faye threatens to kill Quentin if his son dies. Quentin, supposedly a Christian man, threatens to first kill Faye if Faye's son is going to die. Also, Quentin prays for Faye's son. In his prayer he states, "We're your servants, and...." Faye is not God's servant, at least not a regenerated one (throughout the Bible it mentions "servants" of God who do not belong to him or his kingdom, but it's very misleading to knowledgeable Christians reading this book).
Other than that, I think it's okay, but wouldn't recommend it.

It was never returned, so I ordered a new copy, so that I
could read it again. Gilbert Morris, again, has taken historical
fact and woven a wonderful fictional novel. Enjoy!
Andrea Casey5 Stars Out Of 5November 20, 2009Andrea CaseyI love Gilbert Morris's novels. This one was fabulous. The plot was great and his characters were very real and engaging. I hope this one will have a sequel. As a fellow Alabamian, I'm so glad that I discovered this talented author right here in my wonderful state. I plan to read all his work.
Janice Veit5 Stars Out Of 5January 8, 2009Janice VeitI started reading Gilbert Morris from the George McDonald revisions, which I loved and grew spiritually from. This one Edge of Honor is filled with choices we make daily and "what would Jesus Do" answers. That is what impresses me about his books...the scriptural value in a most exciting drama.
Jeanne5 Stars Out Of 5April 11, 2007JeanneMy husband is very ill and almost totally blind. His only enjoyment is listening to books on tape from the Blind Association. He has "read" well over a thousand books; and, he has picked this book as his favorite. I'll be looking in the blind catalog for more of Mr. Morris' books....and I thank you for bringing him pleasure.
