I’ve never read a book that treated its characters with more tenderness, generosity, and sympathy than Benjamin Sáenz’s Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. Even when the characters don’t think they deserve it, especially when the characters don’t think they deserve it, the narrative holds out cupped hands full of love and patiently waits for them to take it. It makes my heart ache so much; it’s a book that genuinely makes me aspire to be a kinder person.
Hello! I'm currently reading the Bible for the first time (I recently found Christ and am just bursting with joy), and the Bible translation I've been reading is The Message, because as a first time reader, it's just easier to understand. Is this okay? I feel like it's the easy-way-out, but it's still God's word right?
