In this Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club recap episode, Rachel leads Sarah, Erin, and Bri in a warm and enthusiastic discussion of Edna Hong’s Bright Valley of Love, “the true story of a handicapped child who finds a haven of love in the nightmare of Nazi Germany.”
Where does true joy come from? What ultimately makes a human life worth living? How does God’s grace free us to live fully in the moment? What can faithful Christians of the past teach us about good and bad ways to combat great evil?
Readers and listeners will come away with a fresh perspective on the sanctity of human life—especially within the context of severe disability—and a renewed will to cherish the dignity and worth of the most vulnerable among us.
Listen till the end to hear an announcement of the next Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club pick: Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead: A Novel.
