I truly love Vanetta Chapman's Amish mysteries, and this is the best one yet. So often the bishop of the People is portrayed as being strict, stiff, and power-hungry. Henry is none of these. He truly seeks God's will in all things, puts others before himself, and sees people with "the Father's Eyes." It would be a blessing to be a friend of Henry's.
We also get to know Emma's family. They are as complex as Henry, and are woven into the story along with others of the church to make a tightly woven,multi-dimensional tale.
One quote true for Amish and Englischers alike:
"They would all be remembered by their deeds, their kindnesses to one another,and the roots of love they left behind."
What The Bishop Saw motivates me to ask God for vision to see people as incredibly compassionately as Henry and ultimately God our Father see them.
I gratefully received this book from the publisher and NetGalley. I am freely leaving a review. I am solely responsible for the opinions therein.
A fire blazes out of control in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, leaving an elderly Amish bachelor dead. Bishop Henry Lapp rushes to the scene, and he learns the fire was no accident. Someone intended to kill Vernon Frey. But who would want to kill Vernon? Well, practically everyone—Amish and Englisch alike.
When the police point the finger at a suspect Henry knows is innocent, the bishop must decide whether or not to use his mysterious, God-given gift—one he's tried desperately to ignore all these years—to try and set the record straight. His close friend and neighbor, Emma, encourages Henry to follow God's leading.
Could the clue to solving the case be locked somewhere deep in his memory? Will Henry find the courage to move forward in faith and put the right person behind bars? Is his friendship with Emma becoming something more?
What the Bishop Saw is a story of extraordinary talents, the bonds of love and friendship, and the unfailing grace of God.
This book is the 1st book in the Amish Bishop Mysteries. Vannetta is one of the GREATEST authors who write about the Amish.
This book is about the Amish who relocate to Colorado. Then all of a sudden, there are so many fires going on and affecting the Amish. The police show up to the Bishop and want his help in solving the crimes of Arson. Then the people of the Amish know that the Bishop has this gift of drawing what he sees and he doesn’t even realize what he is drawing. So, the Bishop draws what she sees when Vernon is killed in his home. That helps them out but they are not so sure about it.
This book is really good. I could hardly put it down and I would recommend this book for everyone to read it. I am not going to say anything else so I won’t ruin the story for you all who love Amish. I love this book. She is GREAT. I would definitely suggest this book to my friends and family. Thank you Vannetta for giving us such a GREAT book to read.
When fires begin to plague the quiet Amish community, fear soon follows. No one can understand why they are being targeted. With no rhyme or reason to the incidents, everyone begins to fear their homes and loved ones might be next.
Bishop Henry Lapp does his best to spread peace and calm through the community but it isn’t enough. The Bishop’s God-given and very unique talent needs to be used to help catch the arsonist but he is reluctant to brush off this seldom used skill. Will the Bishop be able to help his people before more lives and properties are destroyed? You won’t want to miss the first of The Amish Bishop Mysteries!!
