Vessels of Honor deals with people who are struggling - struggling with poverty, with horrific diseases, with the pressures other people put on Christians to ignore their values for the sake of convenience or economics. This novel gets down to the nitty gritty realities of drug abuse, abuse of the elderly, and deals with the questions of divorce and abortion. It examines the issue of how easy it is for a Christian to set aside what he/she know is right in favor of what is easy. This novel is also about the pressure that is put on clergy to allow their congregants to do what is convenient in order to keep them in the church, keep the attendance high and keep the money coming in. It's about how the church (of any denomination) as an institution is often so busy 'adapting to the times' that it forgets why it really exists.
As I said, this is not a light and fluffy novel. It's hard hitting and painful to read. But it's also full of hope, showing us how one person, no matter how tired and depressed, can still make a difference if he sticks to what he believes. It's a lovely story about the choices people make and how they affect everyone else. It's a novel about the responsibilities of clergy and how 'loving thy neighbor' can still make a difference in the world, no matter how far out of fashion it may have gotten.
In addition, this is also an extremely well-written novel. Virginia Myers crafts an excellent story, writes interesting dialogue, and creates characters who make you care about what happens to them. This is definitely a book worth reading no matter what your values or what you believe.
