Recommendation: The Book of Jotham by Arthur Powers

I was blessed and lucky to meet Arthur Powers at the Catholic Writers Guild Live this past August, and I was very happy to pick up a copy of his award-winning The Book of Jotham.   I finally snagged a bit of time to read it, and it made for perfect sabbath-day reading.

This was a moving book that drew me into an illustration of a concept that is either mocked or championed in our current culture:  the value of the “incapable.”  With language that manages to be simultaneously both deep and light-handed, Powers paints a picture of both why and how God creates all His children in love, even if we can’t see that same loveability with which He sees us at every moment. If you’re looking for a brief vision to warm your heart towards those you might find yourself holding in any kind of contempt, I recommend you take a look at The Book of Jotham.
