Redeeming Love Review Update

Hel­lo, dear friends. It’s offi­cial­ly been a year since I start­ed my Redeem­ing Love review series. A lot has hap­pened in that year, some of which I’m hes­i­tant to talk about at any length on this par­tic­u­lar plat­form. Suf­fice it to say that every time I’ve tried to pick up the book to con­tin­ue the review, I’ve been reduced to a quiv­er­ing mess of nerves, pain, and days spent drown­ing in unwel­come mem­o­ry.

I do want to fin­ish my review at some point, per­haps when the trau­ma is less fresh, less all-encom­pass­ing. But for now, I shall refer you to Lindsay’s excel­lent cri­tique (the first cri­tique of this book I ever read). I will also point you to my good friend Saman­tha Field, who is tak­ing over to do her own review series. I’m super thank­ful she’s doing this. I believe it’s so impor­tant, espe­cial­ly since it’s a mas­sive­ly influ­en­tial con­ser­v­a­tive Chris­t­ian cul­tur­al phe­nom­e­non. And espe­cial­ly since Samantha’s book reviews are always top-notch.

Words mean things, friends. The sto­ries we tell each oth­er (and our­selves) are so impor­tant — per­haps even more so when we real­ize a sto­ry we believed turns out to be only what we need­ed to believe until we were ready for the truth. The sto­ry of Redeem­ing Love is just such a sto­ry for so many of us who once found solace in its pages only to dis­cov­er that it was a slow-act­ing poi­son.

Thank you for your patience with me, and par­tic­u­lar­ly for your kind­ness and sup­port this year. You all mean so very much to me.
