Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The story on forgiveness has meaning for me as I have been in a position where I needed to forgive, but couldn’t do it without the Lord’s help. When I began reading ‘The Sculptor’s Lair’ I thought it rather facile. The protagonist professed to be a follower of Jesus, but had absolutely no idea of who Jesus is/was and her total lack of understanding, or even caring really disturbed me. However, as the story moved on, more was revealed, the purpose of the story emerged and I understood. ‘The Abyss’ will give some readers pause for thought and could lead to some soul-searching. The last story ‘Two Ships’ is an allegorical one that stays in the mind long after the story is finished.
This book is different. I think it is either one you will like or dislike, but I doubt whether anyone could stay neutral. It is well-written and edited and covers a variety of issues that can face any one of us. There is plenty of angst and quite a bit of rather dry humour, and it is one of those books that I wish I had a physical copy so I could pencil in comments or underline passages for easy referral. I fall into the “like” group, so a solid 4-star read for me.
