"He did not study God, he was dazzled by him."
I thought at first having only watched the recent movie that it was long winded... But being many times starred at for my bursts of laughter or the many attempts to restrain tears, I can see as I have felt the build up was worth it.

Beauty found deep in despond.

The plight of humanity seen through it's lowest eyes with such dignity.

God can not be seperated from the story.

This book is a giant.

Things discovered about a really great author that glorified God more then humanized the man.
