The Blood of the Lamb by Peter De Vries
The Blood of the Lamb

blewskye, November 13, 2009

Unflinching, raw exploration of a heartbreaking story - told in clean, sparse prose. There are several moments when this prose descends on you like a lightning bolt and leaves you forever altered. Being insidie the thoughts of the main character as he travels his journey of intellectualism to the ultimate in human suffering, witnessing one's child die a painful death, offers a window on one of life's biggest, if not the biggest, question. The horrible suffering of the innocent. The reading of this book requires courage.
