And the Shofar Blew

Stylistically I was impressed with how she developed a big story scene by shofat, moving the conflict and themes forward succinctly, smoothly, and engagingly. She did succumb to the Christian-fiction pitfall of having a too-perfect Christian character.

I was really irritated when Paul always said that this and that were signs from God, and that he should continue with whatever projects he had in mind, when it was so clear that it was just blrw fulfill his vanity.
