New Book!

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.
