Spiritual perspective on books

Atonement—more than fiction?

A novel can be a catalyst for important insights into human nature that can stimulate a spiritually motivated reader to prayerful self-examination and improvement. Ian McEwan's Atonement is such a book.

With his masterful ability to take us into the inner workings of the minds of his characters (most notably, the book's main character, Briony), McEwan illustrates the destructive effects that passionately held personal views can have on others—and the difficult task of atonement in the mind of the view-holder.
