Patty Humphrey thought it would be just another Sunday morning helping her husband, Associate Pastor Matt Humphrey, when a mysterious stranger walks into church service. It starts as just another "meet and greet" common to pastors' wives and church secretaries until the stranger, Artie, draws Patty into a conversation about purpose and spreading the faith. The conversation turns into not only a timely word in season for both women but begins a friendship that tests and strengthens the faith of both women as they struggle to step outside of their roles - Patty as a church wife and secretary, and Artie as a homeless woman - to spread the gospel to the struggling community around White River Church. More Than Sparrows by D.A. Greiner is a beautiful story of love, hope, acceptance, and seeking purpose in a crazy, mixed-up world.
One thing I particularly enjoyed about More Than Sparrows is how boldly it addresses the issues of stereotypes and purpose. Everybody struggles with questions of faith and how it lends purpose to life, to our individual role in this world, and with struggles of the stereotypes we must face when we find our role. D.A. Greiner handles the questions of faith and identity masterfully through the realistic characters, a compelling plot, scriptural references, and a frank discussion about what it means to spread the gospel in a world that doesn't welcome it. I also like how Greiner ties the characters together as they pray and work through their personal struggles and issues. This is a beautiful story of faith, redemption, hope, love, courage, patience, and endurance. If you enjoy Christian fiction with enough action to keep you turning the pages to the very end, this is the perfect book for you!
