“For the Love of His Own Creation: A Novel by Yeshua ben Yosef” led me to believe I was reading an Amish romance. As the story unraveled, I was pleasantly surprised…
- A wonderfully engaging story
- Overall, the characters were believable
- The creative journey
- The words brought the story to life. I could picture what was being told.
- The imagery of destruction was well thought out
- Showed messy lives
- Thought provoking
- God’s presence is throughout
- The men in the book sometimes appeared flat, and this made is hard to connect with them in the story. (Although, the women were believable.) To me, the book gave the impression there was greater focus on the women. I was expecting more focus on Morok, especially with the synopsis. For example, the male characters either seemed “love struck” (if they were good characters) or cold (if they were evil characters). The women, on the other hand portrayed the good and wicked side of themselves. Note: Morok was the most well-rounded male character.
- A few early spelling and spacing issues
- The use of talking to the dead. The book portrays talking to the dead quite a lot, while I enjoyed it from a fictional standpoint, it’s not Biblical.
- I understand this book is labeled as a work of fiction, but I also understand this book is regarded to come from Yeshua ben Yosef (Jesus). I quote Jane Garshore, “The story came through me—channeled, via dictation—over a period of 6 months from early December, 2015 to early June, 2016. Its true author is the spirit who was known in his time on Earth as Yeshua ben Yosef—Jesus, son of Joseph, known to many as Jesus Christ.”
*My opinion: what I didn’t care for or do not prefer. This will not lower a rating unless it overly distracts from the story.
