Kathy McC | 36 comments I am enjoying this book, but not as much as other JP books. Is anyone having trouble with the "believability factor". I sometimes feel that I am reading fantasy fiction. I am 2/3 finished.

Ashley (readerandwriter) | 75 comments If your talking about the book Keeping Faith , yeah I am having trouble with the believablity factor. I think the book is sort of a debate of wheather God exists or not and is telling us we should believe in God.

Kimberly I dunno...I'm not having too much trouble with that, because so many people are skeptical about it. (I just entered into "The New Testamet"). Even the priests don't believe her...but most of the clergy are depicted as buffoons. I am not Cathloic and I do not know too many priests, but they are portrayed in this book to be worse than Metz (the lawyer)!

Kathy McC | 36 comments That's a good point. I hadn't really thought about that. Interesting- is it a commentary in disguise?

Kathy McC | 36 comments I think that is true. My problem is- if this is written for a non-believer or a skeptic, I think the miracles are too obvious. True belief often comes from accepting less obvious forms of God's presence.

Anna | 81 comments This is one of the few JP books I haven't read--is it based on Roman Catholic doctrine? I am a Methodist, but former Roman Catholic--partially due to the patriarchial nature of the Roman Catholic Church.

Ashley (bookworm84) (bookworm84) I read "Keeping Faith" and I absolutely loved the book.
