Okay, I'm old and I've collected books and enjoyed reading many, many years. However, it still amazes me to find there are avid readers not familiar with the works of Lloyd C. Douglas. He wrote "The Robe," "The Big Fisherman," "Magnificent Obsession," and one of his first - biggest - best, to get big national acclaim was "Green Light." His books offer sound spiritual wisdom through fiction. His books are always interesting stories packed with stabilizing help and inspiration for the reader. I believe he wrote most of his books in the 30' and 40's but this is a joy of reading. Here is a person truly worth listening to, easily accessible through his books. Get to know him, it's worth the effort.

Being the best selling novel of 1935 I was compelled to give this one a read. Douglas was a hugely popular writer of the era and here he spins an interesting story about a young surgeon cast astray by the botched surgery he takes credit for. However, he is really covering up for his mentor. The protagonist had developed an interesting, mildly spiritual relationship with the patient before her death and later comes into contact with not only the woman's pastoral influence but her grown daughter. The interweaving of guilt and disillusionment for the young doctor along with his new romantic encounters with other characters drive the story. It is not a quick mover but does an infinitely better job of laying out the story than the Errol Flynn film made later. That film while okay standing alone, completely dismembers the book and puts it back together as some sort of Hollywood Frankenstein. My only real disappointment with the book is with the end of the story. I think it is meant to be satisfying and redeem most of the characters critical to the story, but it does have a bit of a tacked on feel. There are however many profound observations in the book that show the writer's insight of the "human condition" at a time when it may have been at a multi-generational low.

A very enjoyable story, but nowhere's near the quality of some of his other books like The Robe. Wonderful subject matter - living a godly life, and fascinating development of how a physically "crippled" pastor develops immense spiritual power in helping his flock. Includes some very practical tips in great counseling skills for the emotionally distraught and the spiritually fraying.
