Josh is the pastor of a small church, and tries to do God’s will to the best of his ability. Dave wants to get revenge on all the pastors he can because of what a few have done to him. Their paths cross in Mark Miller’s The Pure in Heart.
The book is interesting, and has several good parts. The plot flows smoothly and Miller builds the stories of the main characters well and I could identify with both in some areas. Josh wants to be more comfortable sharing faith, and frequently second guesses his choices. Dave puts people, specifically pastors, into the same group based on what one or two have done to him, or a few quick observations. The viewpoints of both characters provide something to think about.
I could have done without some of the language and innuendoes. I don’t like that in books that I read. The book was good other than that.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
