Faith and the Parable of the Blindfold by Jwyan C. Johnson is a Christian read that gives biblical scriptures throughout various short stories. In the first story, Thomas Walker visits a doctor to obtain a second opinion regarding his skin's sensitivity to sunlight. Oddly enough, Thomas is visiting a doctor named Faith, that his friend Christian has referred him to for this second opinion. The story was a good read because as the story unfolds and Thomas agrees to try physical therapy with Dr. Faith, he says that he doesn't see how it will help but he realizes he has nothing to lose.
Faith and the Parable of the Blindfold tests your faith through symbolism. This was an easy read because it gave a different insight to the Christian faith and was a great way to help learn different scriptures. Although short in length, it was very well written and done in a creative way that enabled the reader to understand exactly what was intended by the author. At the end of the book, all of the symbols in the stories are identified to help give an even better understanding of what occurred in the stories.
Throughout the book, scriptures are referenced for continued understanding which is a bonus. The overall goal seems to to be to get people to better understand scriptures and it’s a great idea for young teenagers. At the end of the book there are questions as well as a skit that encourages the reader to push even further when trying to gain a better understanding of the scriptures used. The skit is also an outstanding way to hold the attention of readers of all ages.
Jwyan C. Johnson has done an excellent job with this book because it packs a punch and makes one wonder beyond reading the story. I found myself smiling at the scriptures and having a better understanding of how they should be interpreted. This is a good read from beginning to end and I would definitely recommend it to others with preteen children.
