This book reminds me of Mary, the mother of Jesus, who "pondered" on the meaning of revelations and events regarding her son. She "found favor" with God because of her humility and her "pondering" of the Scriptures.
One word that very much describes this book is HONESTY. The author does not fail to admit to her own faults and imperfections. It reminds me of the journal of St. Pope John XXIII, which is a very honest book of self-revelation and reflection. It shows "Good Pope John"'s quest to become a better person, including his many falls and his attempts to get back up. He claimed his besetting sin was his pride. His efforts apparently bore fruit, because pride is not a fault one normally associates with him. Humility was one of the great aspects of his personality and his soul. Pope John XXIII stated, regarding his journal, "My soul is within these pages." Likewise, Lia London's soul is within these pages. As she stated in a Clean Indie Reads post on Facebook, this book is a "glimpse of my mind/soul".
We should all do more "pondering" in our lives, and this book is a great model for that. I thoroughly enjoyed PARABLES & PONDERINGS and I highly recommend it!
After finishing the book, I took a sneak peak at a novel by Lia London [Almost all her books are on my Kindle For PC, and I intend to read them all!], GYPSY PEARL:CAREN. I think I am going to like that one, too! Don't miss this writer! I think that PARABLES & PONDERINGS, though much different from her works of fiction, is a good introduction to this writer. If you read this book, you will probably want to read more from this writer. I know I do!
There are a wide variety of topics covered by this book. There ae many parables about everyday occurrences. The tales are short and pithy for the most part. This is good. Not all of the topics are relatable for everyone. This is bad (but not real bad, because they are still understandable). Almost every single one is joined with a Bible verse. This is great. This last aspect makes these parables reminiscent of Aesop's Fables, where the moral is shouted out at the end, in case you failed to grasp the message otherwise conveyed. Generally speaking, I do prefer a slightly more nuanced approach, but easily recognize the value of putting a bright light on the lesson to be learned.
I am not happy giving this book only three stars, but could not quite bring myself to give it four, demonstrating the flaw in not having a larger grading scale. The drop from four stars to three, however, is more a reflection on my personal reading preferences than on the quality of the book.
I read one or a few of these devotionals when I had a few minutes to spare. They resonated with me, and I think most Christians will take away some truth from each one.
