Review: Glimpses of Paradise by James Scott Bell


I liked this on a lot of levels even though the story felt very rushed. I haven’t read any of his other stuff, but I recognized a character from a separate story, and now I’m gonna have to read that series, too. ;-) What I liked the most: the snapshots of what was going on in the church during the late 1910s-early 1920s. He included a lot about RA Torrey, which was really cool for me since my parents went to the Church of the Open Door when they lived in LA. I grew up on Torrey’s doctrines through McGee’s preaching, so I really appreciated the inclusion of letters, sermons and so on in this novel. Also, the ending was very good.
