I’ve read my fair share of Francine Rivers books, I had all her books in college and read through them a few times. Her ability to create characters is amazing and one of my favorite things about her books.
I can openly and honestly admit it’s been a while since I’ve read through the gospels. The last time was in 2015 when I read through the whole bible. But I haven’t done a gospel book study in years, nonetheless really studied the book of Mark. My husband’s favorite gospel.
