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. As a rebellious teenager, Mesu rejected God and His Word, but discovered Jesus as a life-transforming Savior through the changed life of an old friend.

“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.”
Mesu Andrews, Love in a Broken Vessel

“But neither the mountains nor the people can rob you of the forgiveness God has given...unless you let them.”
Mesu Andrews, Love Amid The Ashes

“Forgiveness is like an olive tree, mistress. Once it takes root, it will grow, and it’s hard to kill.”
Mesu Andrews, Love Amid the Ashes

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.
