BOOK REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Patience of a Saint by Andrew Greeley

I love stories of old love.  That’s right.  Not stories of young love, those are a dime a dozen.  I love stories of couples that have shared their lives and hurts for decades and against all odds find a way to still share their love.  Patience of a Saint is just such a story.  Red Kane is a Chicago newspaper reporter that between  investigations of dirty politicians and unexplained disappearances, He experience a renewal of the Holy Spirit.  Despite his better judgment, Red sets out to restore his broken marriage.  The story of redemption is not one sided but two showing the rewards of one person taking the first step.  Greeley shows how to disclose the baggage that two people can let fester until it dampens the joy of a loving relationship.

My favorite part of the book is when Red decides he is going to back to being his old ornery self and finds the Holy Spirit does not let him go so easily.  What a releif to know that the love of the Lord can stalk us and lure us back to His loving arms.  Read the book– One of my all time favorites– and renew your own belief of restoration in  your life.  It’s fun to read about Chicago too.
