About this deal

Yes, God loves us and forgives us when we sin if we approach Him through trust in Jesus, but that doesn't give us a licence to sin or to presume upon His grace. FYI: If devout believers who see God in everything as well as true faith being the only way to find happiness in life bother you, you may want to pass on this book.

When the men at the brothel see the two young girls with Angel, they become furious and destroy the place. He definitely had a happier ending than what most would think he deserved but I guess no one is beyond redemption.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It was difficult to believe all this love at first sight and God speaking to these people in mysterious ways. In spite of its flaws, REDEEMING LOVE is a good book, and I think secular readers will be able to enjoy it too (probably more so if they can find copies of that elusive 1991 edition). I didn't finish it and I'm not rating it because I recognize that I am not the target audience for this story. I asked a few GR friends if they thought that this book was appropriate for someone who isn't Christian or religious, and they all said yes, that it was more of an uplifting love story than anything else.

Angel/Sarah and Michael’s love story was beautiful and I was on the edge of my seat through most of this story. The element of religion was heavily pronounced, but I didn't find it to be preachy — in fact, I found it comforting and enlightening. It is revealed in a flashback that during her time as Duke's mistress, Angel got pregnant twice, and both times an infuriated Duke had a doctor abort it. Okay, having children if you want them is all great, but are we really implying that women who can't have children, or perhaps end up with men who can't, have meaningless lives? That is not in line with Scripture, where God does not love with an everlasting love those who deny Him.My heart broke when her back-story was revealed, and I read about how she was betrayed, destroyed and used. With no money and no place to live, she reluctantly goes back to prostitution with one of the town's bar owners. Now this was a man who was told by God, that he should marry Angel and deliver her from her bondage. Her situation is portrayed as very bad, and instead of having Michael a bright light of God still chasing her like the hound of Heaven, we have a very flawed man not fully understanding who she is past her protective walls, a man letting her run back into independence because he labors under a misconception of what she's gone to do. Note: I don't want to get much into the topic of content because, like I said, I can forgive content.
