Book Review: Passing Lincoln by Michael S. Rogers

Passing Lincoln
Check out the book on >Goodreads<

When her great-grandson returns the five-dollar bill with her note that he can trust God, Dolores is ready to give up hope. She wants to believe God can reach him, but she doesn’t know how to help.
Desperately, she puts her gift in the offering plate on Sunday morning and prays, “God, if you’re really there, you can use my money to save one of those kids. I don’t want to be selfish. It doesn’t have to be my Little Chet. Whoever it is, God, I pray you use my gift to help them see Jesus.”

From wallet to purse to dumpster to pocket, her gift travels all over Beulah, Indiana, until it returns to the hands of the young man who gave it away.

Passing Lincoln is a modern-day speculation of what God can do with a widow’s two coins (Mark 12:41-44).


My Review:

Genre: Christian fiction, contemporary.

My Rating: 4 stars.

My Recommendation: 16 up. A warning is below.

My Favorite Character/s: There are so many characters, but my favorite is easy to pick. Seth. I liked him the most of all of the characters because he took the time to do what was right even though he didn’t want to do it. And again with his sister, but I can’t say more because of spoilers.

My Verse for Seth: John 13:34
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. (King James Version)

My Thoughts: I’ve never read a book like this one! I mean this in a good way, of course! I loved seeing all the changes in characters, places, and circumstances. The book is interesting and I was intrigued by the first chapter.

Warning/s: One problem that isn’t really a problem just needs to be read with caution is that the book went to the POV of people who weren’t in the best places. So, there are slight mentions of being pregnant out of wedlock and abortion, alcohol and drugs, suicide and self-abuse. Though almost all of the characters do find redemption, the book doesn’t shy away from sin. So, I don’t recommend it to a younger audience or readers that will be triggered easily

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Stellae Books. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.
