The Pilgrim by Joy Margetts

A wonderful second novel from the author of ‘The Healing – Will a monk’s habit help unlock his identity’. This book is actually a prequel to ‘The Healing’ although the story does stand alone. The series is set in medieval times among the abbeys and holy sites of Wales. One of the supporting characters from ‘The Healing’ becomes the central figure in this story – although to begin with we may find it hard to recognize him! If you’ve never read any Christian historical fiction before then The Pilgrim by Joy Margetts is a great place to start.

Not Knowing But Still Going – Jocelyn-Anne Harvey

The biblical account of Noah is found in Genesis 6-10, four short chapters, where a powerfully dramatic event is told in a very prosaic manner. We often overlook this story of God’s covenant with Noah, it may be that there are aspects that we are not comfortable with. The rise of wickedness in the world and the inclination of the human heart to evil, are not uplifting thoughts on the nature of humanity. God’s sorrow and His judgement to destroy all of His creation, are sobering reminders of the righteousness of God.
