Reading "Redemption": very satisfying experience
The author, Jacquelin Thomas, uses the relationship of Reverend Warner Brice and his wife, Marin to place major emphasis on two distinctive points of the novel: (1) to forgive others in the same manner as our God offers us His divine forgiveness, and (2) to love others as our God loves us. Reverend Brice tells his congregation, "Once we fully forgive, our minds are released from the bondage of anger, bitterness, and resentment". Warner also asked his congregation to follow God's example of love. This would be displaying a love that always protects, always trust, always hopes, and always perseveres.
