Book Review: A Stone For A Pillow

A Stone for a Pillow

Journeys with Jacob
by Madeleine L’Engle

Crown Publishing

Convergent Books

Pub Date 23 May 2017 

I am voluntarily reviewing A Stone For A Pillow by Crown Publishing/Convergent books and Netgalley:

In the second book of the Genesis trilogy Madeline L Engle draws life lessons, relevant today, from the life of Jacob. She talks about serving time on a New York Jesus in which she read a book called Revelation and Truth by by Nicholas Berdyaev.

She goes on to show us that too Jacob the house of God was not an enclosure or a building but an open place.  She reminds us that despite his shortcomings Jacob was a lovable man.  

She goes on to remind us that if we are good, it is not because of us, but God in us.

I give A Stone for A Pillow five out of five stars.

Happy Reading.
