Reviews - What do customers think about Love Stories of the Bible?
Great concept, poorly executed. Aug 3, 2006
I had oh so high hopes for this little book. After all, the Bible gives us some of the greatest love stories of the history of mankind. LOVE STORIES OF THE BIBLE by Darlene Mindrup, however, fell far short of my expectations.
The nine stories chronicled here are basically carbon copies of the same story. Mindrup has gone overboard with the editorializing of these great stories and takes liberties where adherence to doctrine should have been the precedent. For example, in Mindrup's version, Adam's original sin was fear, rather than disobedience. Each story renders the same semantics as the one before. A simple touch is felt as a jolt of passion.
These stories are included in the Bible, not just because they are great love stories, but because God intended them to be points of doctrine. That being the case, I do not like the looseness in which the author has used to delineate these stories.
