Mesu grew up with a variegated Christian heritage. With grandparents from the Pilgrim Holiness, Nazarene, and Wesleyan Churches, her dad was a Quaker and mom charismatic. As you might imagine, God was a central figure in most family discussions, but theology was a battlefield and Scripture the weapon.

3 Sources Helped Me Put Manasseh on the Spectrum

Why would anyone link an ancient Judean king with autism? Let me begin with full disclosure. No one in my family or circle of friends has officially been placed on the spectrum. And I didn’t write King Manasseh’s fictional persona as high-functioning autistic (HFA) to push an agenda. I wrote Judah’s fourteenth king with this particular struggle because careful and ...

“The messages of a prophet...affect the decisions of kings. The decisions of kings determine not just the course of nations but also the life and death of individuals in those countries. If we become so enamored with our own little world that we disregard the nations, we are no better than those who focus on nations and ruthlessly disregard human life.”

“But neither the mountains nor the people can rob you of the forgiveness God has given...unless you let them.”

Mesu It's good, but I had to read it in short spurts. Very troubling images conquered by God's continuous healing. It's raw but excellent.


Miralee This is the next book on my list to read. I've heard very good things about it and plan on blogging about it, as well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
