From the first page, I can tell, this book is going to cause growth in my soul and break my heart! As I swipe the pages of my iPad...I garner the sadness that awaits me. The Holocaust from a mothers perspective.
Why should I read it? When, I study theology, I'm not looking for "soul candy" is my simple answer. We already, have to many prosperity preachers and their feel good books to make the masses feel elated about themselves. Never, would I find such an obscure book, as the one I begin now, at Barnes and Noble-I have looked.
I'm not afraid to feel bad, and I want to restore the faces of those who lost them in the chambers. Melissa has given them a voice that may give insight into the difficult question of "Where was God" when all this was happening? I hope to find different answers from a different source...through the lens of suffering women.
