Ladies & Gentlemen, today’s post is a review of Ray Keating‘s latest release, Under the Golden Dome: A Pastor Stephen Grant Novel.
Under the Golden Dome Review
Another fast-paced read from Lutheran author Ray Keating. This time, however, there are unbalanced elements within the very churches themselves: both Lutheran and Roman Catholic.
I can’t say that imagining bad guys among us is my favorite activity, but times certainly come when we have to realize that radicalization can happen anywhere. Sin is real in all its depths.
I enjoyed all the lovely descriptions of Notre Dame, and I enjoy imagining a way that Christians can come together to affirm important things.
Capitalism stars, of course, with some very interesting Roman Catholic thoughts on it.
