The Power of Love
The Start Of Us by T.K. Chapin is a powerful
contemporary Christian novel about love. Love comes in many different forms but
we have only one word for it, ‘love.’ The best way to love is to love like
Jesus – whether it’s our parents, friends, work colleagues or spouse. We need
to see people as Jesus sees them – imperfect human beings in need of love and
Our past may have been hard but we cannot let
it define us. If we measure everything by the yardstick of the past, we will
miss out on the present.
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.
