I wasn't really interested in reading the latest book until I saw that Tom at Disputation liked it. I got an email today from Random House asking if I wanted to read it, so I am going to check it out.

I hadn't known that Peter Kreeft liked the first one so this is a big plus for me. I remember Jimmy Akin giving it a somewhat positive review.


"There is not an inauthentic note in it," asserts Kreeft.

The political correctness Olasky refers to sounds rather inauthentic to me, not to mention that the whole thing is the fabricated thoughts of the boy Jesus, which of course we know almost nil about.

Jackson: Just to clarify—Kreeft was referring to the first novel, not the second.

Odd thing: The first book helped me come to terms emotionally with Mary’s Perpetual Virginity. Sometimes fiction can convince me of something a few thousand apologetic books cannot.

I once heard a Reformed fellow say that Flannery O’Connor’s short story Parker’s Back about a byzantine Christ tattoo convinced him to drop the iconoclasm.
