My 30th Blog! A Book Recommendation
Posted On 04/29/2008 18:15:33 by phoenix_rick

Good morning all!  I have yet another book recommendation for you.  I am reading "Pillars Of the Earth" by Ken Follett.


This is one AWESOME book.  It is a fictional story set in the Middle Ages (around 1130AD), and focuses on a mix of people living in the fictional town of Kingsbridge, England.


It is an extremely detailed, extremely well-researched novel that vividly portrays the lifestyle, politics, religion, and day-to-day life of a varety of characters: a Catholic Bishop, a Monk, rural peasantry, nobility, etc.


The Middle Ages being what it was, the book explores the corruptions of the Catholic institution, but it takes great care to also highlight the staunch and unswerving faith and dedication of others.


Herein lies my point today:  This book has reminded me that, even faced with extremely tough and daunting circumstances, there were those people of faith that continued to thank God and serve God with unswerving enthusiasm.


It has reminded me to take a moment each day, despite whatever circumstances I may face, to thank the Lord for all the good he brought about in my life!


With that said, I highly recommend reading this book, if your interested in great historical fiction!


Have a great week!


Rick
