Babe’s Bi­ble: Gor­geous Grace

The Church of England - - COLLEGE STREET -

Babe’s Bi­ble Se­quel by Karen Jones A woman will al­ways have hard­ships. This has be­come a con­sis­tent theme since the dawn of time.

Sex traf­fick­ing, drugs, and temp­ta­tion are only a few sec­tions of the mad­ness that me­dia and the world have re­cently seen. It’s time Chris­tians stop hid­ing from it and un­der­stand the prob­lems coming from it.

Karen Jones backs up Babe’s Bi­ble: Gor­geous Grace with a “gra­cious” se­quel that fi­nally ad­dresses the con­cerns of real cri­sis as well as rap­ping up prob­lems from its pre­de­ces­sor.

Jones writes about Grace, a mother and wife who is faced with per­sonal temp­ta­tions as well as aid­ing those in need. While many of the prob­lems are even out­side of her realm, she helps each per­son as hon­estly as she can.

Grace is a kind-hearted woman fac­ing very dif­fi­cult prob­lems. Not only are th­ese dif­fi­cul­ties af­fect­ing her per­sonal life, but also her peers.

Although she has the best in­ten­tions in mind, her help some­times brings on more con­cerns. For ex­am­ple, she ac­ci­den­tally brings her best friend Chloe, face to face with her past. This seems like a pat­tern theme through­out the story.

With per­sonal ad­vice from her faith based in­tu­ition, Grace ad­heres to her gut which al­lows her to make the best de­ci­sions God could hope for.

The book touches on real is­sues for women like mak­ing love, teenager rants, and jug­gling the fam­ily life­style. It does not go with the typ­i­cal flow of a fe­male’s happy end­ing, but also al­lows for some to not come out on top.

The se­quel is worth the read; how­ever, it is fo­cused on the ma­ture women au­di­ence. Most of the sto­ries re­late to a more in­tense ready au­di­ence of Chris­tian women.

This book re­fuses to hide be­hind melo­dra­matic things and fo­cuses on the more real­is­tic as­pect.

I def­i­nitely would rec­om­mend this side of the story; how­ever, read­ing the orig­i­nal helps enor­mously when mak­ing an over­all as­sump­tion.
