Love, Love, Love
The Space Between Us by T.K. Chapin is a marvelously powerful
contemporary Christian novel about love. This love is not a love that
diminishes this is the love of God for His children and the love of His
children for each other. It is a love based on 1 Corinthians 13. A love that puts others first. A
love that takes care of the lost and the lonely.
I love the idea that “God is pursuing you.” No
matter what we’ve done or where we’ve been, God wants a relationship with us.
The novel explores parental relationships.
Earthly parents may fail us but God never will.
Trust is a major theme. We need to trust God
with our lives. He only wants the best for us. “God’s not a genie… He has a
plan. I just need to trust him.”
We must never judge others. We do not know what
they have been through. “ ‘You here to preach?’ ‘No… I’m here to love.’ “
God Loves You. Seek Him
Until Christmas by T.K. Chapin is a delightful Christian festive offering and part of the Potter’s House series. A perfect read for any time of year.
The main theme of the novel is that of trust. “Everything seems a mess, but I am choosing to trust You.” Even when life is falling apart,we can trust that God has a plan for our lives. Whatever is happening, God is in control. “I feel like God is so distant and quiet.” Our feelings are an unreliable gauge God is working for our good, regardless of what we are feeling.
Whom To Trust
Love’s Return by T.K. Chapin is a contemporary Christian tale and the first in the Protected By Love series. It was a cracking start and great to meet up with familiar faces from the Diamond Lake series.
The main theme is trust. We need to know we can always trust God to take care of us.
Tragedies in life may be hard to get past. “Why is it so hard to pick up a Bible but so easy to pick up a bottle?” Seeking comfort and healing anywhere but in God will never work.
The novel shows the importance of friends and teamwork. We need to have people around us who will love and support us.
My Heart. My Love. My Hope
In His Love by T.K. Chapin is a marvellous contemporary Christian story that deals with homosexuality and the Christian response. In His Love is neither judgemental nor ‘preachy’. It is a realistic read that focuses on a mother’s love for her son.
This can be extended out to the love of God for all His children. The novel reveals that there are some bigoted people in the world but true Christians who have the Spirit of God living inside them, see people to love and not labels to hate.
The novel has a mystery to solve. Reporter John, will do anything to uncover the truth. The truth at all times is important. No one should live a lie.
