A Review! I missed…


“Jane Cooper Easton’s “In The Seventh Day” is a great read. I can see this storyline making its way into a “Justified” series (calling those who script the series… take a look at this one). I must admit, it’s a little off the beaten path of most of my reading, but when I finally got into its pages, I read it through to completion… in a very short timeframe. I got a little queezy during a few scenes, so be warned, the author allows the central character to run with his take on his (mis)understanding of Scripture. This dude is not a nice guy. But then, it’s very difficult to find anyone in the storyline who could be called the good guy. The crimes committed and their justification (a nod to the scripters again) in the name of Christianity is appalling to say the least. In the end, I believe there is an intention by the author to cause the reader to examine our doctrine (not a bad suggestion… ever). The twisting of the Bible’s view of women has always been a concern in the church. The character pastor in this story distorts it so badly that I walked away from this work checking to ensure there isn’t a dab of that mindset in my own life. The ending is really provoking (I’ll say no more, but I closed the cover angry!), but the reader is left understanding a little better how a man could end up with such a distorted view of the grace and mercy of the cross. You’ll have to get beyond some of the crude actions of the main character (the author doesn’t restrain him), but I highly recommend this work. Very moving.”
