Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve been reading a pretty breathtaking series of books: The Chronicles of Peniel. I read them out of order, which strangely I almost recommend. The first in the series, The Bestman, the Bride and the Wedding by Lutheran Pastor Michael L. McCoy was absolutely unlike anything I’ve ever read before. If you are interested in the role fiction can play in communicating intricacies of the faith, you should get this, particularly for how it portrays the Office of the Holy Ministry. Please do note, however, I would not classify it as a family read aloud.
