I forgot to put this book on my list as one I'd read. Now Brent and I are rereading it for our nightly devotional. I always enjoy anything England writes.

We finished last night (11/20/11). England looks at the quality of mercy from several different perspectives, including Shakespearean characters. The personal stories he tells are poignant and illustrative.

Eugene England has insights into the gospel of Jesus Christ that are very valuable to me, and this book emphasizing mercy is a treasure. Mercy for others, mercy for yourself, Christ's mercy toward us--they are all explored with personal stories, doctrinal explorations, and heartfelt, exceptionally well-written essays.

I thought this was a great book from Eugene England, but not his best work. I enjoyed reading the essays and the self-analysis was fun, but I didn't feel the writing was quite as finessed as his other stuff. A good read, but probably wouldn't make the top of my recommendations list.

A thoughtful and insightful book on the quality of mercy. The Book Index summarizes the book well and I really liked the essay, chapter 4, “Easter Weekend.”
