I’ve been recently sharing my favorite books from the past year. Sadly, we come to the last one. For those who have missed my other posts on 2015 books, check them all out at the links below.
This next book is highly important to me for the message it gives. It is..
Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Rated A –
I believe each individual should have this on their shelf.
I think everyone is relatively familiar with this work, but how many have actually read it? How many have actually grasped the message? To one, it may just be a nice, entertaining, historical fiction novel, but to me, it was a wake-up call for America and her church. Whether it was read during the times of the Civil War or read even today, the message of this book still holds true. People cannot see people as people, and here the church sits idly by doing nothing.
Not only is this story convicting,but it’s also incredibly well written. It is entertaining and it does hold the reader’s interest. Because of the characters’ heart rending struggles and strife, one cannot help but cry when they cry or rejoice when they rejoice.
Please pick up a copy of your own. To solve the problems of today, we need to take a blast into the past. See how Stowe deals with the issues during her time. Have they really changed that much?
Now that I’ve concluded this chapter of favorite books, what were some of your favorites of 2015?
