A Primary Decision
By Dr. Kevin Leman and Jeff Nesbit
The Worthington Destiny
This is the third book in the series and I think some things would have made more sense if I had read the first two. The book was still very good and very well-written, but just would have made more sense if I had read the first two first.
It's the story of the rise of the first female President, which I find a bit ironic considering our recent election. I'm guessing some of that played into the story line for the authors as well beings the book is brand-new.
The book is classified as contemporary fiction. I am not sure that it is Christian. God is never mentioned. The Bible is a time or two, but the principles the Worthingtons lived by seemed to be Bible-based. It was a paraphrase from Luke 12:48 and it was this, "To those who are given much, much is required." There is also a theme of forgiveness and doing the right thing no matter what that runs through the book. In some ways the book has stronger Christian elements than books that spout Bible verses at regular intervals. I was challenged by the concept of doing the right thing no matter what. In the world of politics, that's a foreign concept. Also the idea that family is first and very important and you protect each other no matter what as well.
The principles of the Worthington's should definitely be emulated in each of our lives. Yes, there were some major mistakes made, like a child from a one-night affair, but the forgiveness and grace that was extended? It seemed to me that it was nothing short of God's grace.
This book was given to me by Revell Publishing. I am happy to write a review giving my honest opinion of the book.
