    One thought on “Stone Crossings: Finding Grace in Hard and Hidden Places”

    1. UGGGGHAm I literally the only person in the world who doesn't like this book? First off, you need to know that I'm a Christian, so I'm not going to dog the book for those reasons. However, some of her points are weird and creepy. Such as--God the lover? Not cool. Also, minus 10 points for any author who uses the word "lover" in a non-ironic sense. The book starts out with her trying to make you believe it is about her opening up her life and exploring it with the reader. Not true. She hints at l [...]

    2. I consider it a privilege when I finish a book like Stone Crossings. L.L. Barkat's stark, evocative prose wormed its way into my heart, and her unflinching honesty caused me to consider life more deeply, to run to the God who made it all. I love her story throughout the book, how it restrains to tell the truth, yet holds her privacy. I love how she wrestles. And I love how God finds her.

    3. So far I have absolutely been caught up by the beautiful words and images in this book. I am half way through and I read when the baby is going to sleep I'm finding some real grace and learning in these pages.So made it half way through then petered out. Not sure why

    4. Beautifully written and poetic. Barkat finds God's presence in the midst of life's tragedy. At times her poetic pictures swept me into her story and other times left me a bit confused. Still, a book I really enjoyed. Very hopeful perspective on life.

    5. An enjoyable read despite the hard places described at times. I found it uplifting, meeting me where I am.
