    Ebook Ó Gilead PDF/EPUB Ì gilead kindle, Gilead EpubIt often feels as if the contemporary literary scene has internalized Anna Karenina’s dictum on the nature of happiness—that it is not idiosyncratic with the implication that it is not worth the kind of careful attention that literature applies to its subjects We need look no further than our own lives to recognize the problem we’ll encounter if we preoccupy ourselves with the Tolstoyan “unhappy family” at the expense of the happy ones Asked about our defining or most enlightening moments most of us are as likely to recount happy memories as we are moments of despair Yet too

    Ebook Ó Gilead PDF/EPUB Ì gilead kindle, Gilead EpubThis novel reminds me—with its beautifully spare prose and the bleak stoicism of its characters—of three books Per Petterson's Out Stealing Horses Willa Cather's My Ántonia and Martin Amis's House of Meetings This is not meant as a statement of influence but simply one of kinship The writing in all of these novels is conversational in tone and beautifully compressed which is enormously hard to do though it appears easy Gilead is the story of a Protestant pastor the Reverend Ames who in the midwestern town of Gilead of about 1950 or so writes to his then seven year old son The pastor is dying and the letter is intended to be read when his son has reached adulthood In it the pastor speaks of his grandfather and his fath

    Ebook Ó Gilead PDF/EPUB Ì gilead kindle, Gilead EpubDear SonThe Too Little Too Late Dilemma of Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead It’s deceptively tempting to approach a book like Marilynne Robinson’s Gilead and see only the main character’s theological musings After all in a novel about an old man reminiscing about faith and family there’s a plethora of weighty spiritual content; everything from careful exegesis of Genesis 22 to references to Karl Barth’s Epistle to the Romans Needless to say this is no simple “I remember when” fable of love and loss Issues are being grappled with weighed and eschewed However to review the novel from a theological stance cannot merely mean discussing old John Ames’ opinions on war forgiveness or predestination That job belongs primarily to his congregants and family within the narrative The uestion I the reader encou
