The Passion of the Kingdom
The Theology of Mark
Derek Morphew Publications
Interesting and educational read. I really really liked the section on Peter. This rest of the book was also good particularly the themes of 'authority and conflict' and 'the Messianic secret'.
There were a few spelling mistakes in the book, but hopefully these will be ironed out before the book hits Amazon.
Discovering the Kingdom
(Kingdom Theology Series)
Derek Morphew Publishing
I read this awhile ago now, but clearly remember it along with Ladd's book, bending my mind and changing my grid for looking at the Kingdom of God. Morphew has a lot to say on this subject and all of it is well worth reading.
I read this book because of 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' and was not disappointed with it. Once again Rachael created lovely broken characters wanting to be swallowed by the hearts of compassionate readers. I enjoyed the story, totally didn't see the twist in the second-to-last chapter coming and utterly hated the tidying up in the feel-good final chapter. For me, a person who does not need a happy ending, this book was ruined in the last chapter.
Hue & Cry Press
Brilliant, simply a brilliant book. I couldn't read this book slow enough and purposely delayed the finishing of it. The story was beautifully crafted and left images floating around my head for days.
By far the best poetry to date that I have read.
