I just recently finished a Ginger Garrett book called Wolves Among Us. I really enjoy her books because I learn so much about Truth and history. This book was set in sixteenth century Germany during the witch trials that took the lives of more than 23,000 women—something I hadn’t known.
In the Afterwords—an element I enjoy almost as much as the story—the author shared about her visit to a modern day witches’ meeting. I was convicted as I read about women rejected by the church, seeking love and understanding, falling in with the only people who accepted them as they are. I realized that witches are another group of people the church sanctions members to righteously reject. I wonder how many witches came from abuse.
Another topic Ginger Garrett explores is that of gender roles in the church. Reading this section left me feeling under-informed to such a degree that I knew I wasn’t even fully comprehending her message.
This book and the Afterwords were very thought provoking for me. Truth seeking. I found it unflinching and unrelenting. I like that. I don’t want to be distracted by the trappings of this world, treasures of which will be ashes in the eyes of eternity.
