In this Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club recap episode, Rachel leads Sarah, Erin, and Bri in a wide-ranging discussion of Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead: A Novel.
How does the past shape the present and the future (whether or not it’s remembered)? What does it look like to live with absolute commitment to a moral cause? Is it possible to love, forgive, and even bless an unrepentant prodigal? How can a story where nothing much happens keep readers riveted simply by the power of its voice and characters?
Listen till the end to hear an announcement of the next Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club pick: Joel Heck’s From Atheism to Christianity: The Story of C.S. Lewis.
