S. L. Russell
The Land of Nimrod
From the Leviathan Trilogy
Russell's Nimrod is not like any Christian book I have read. Her characters are real, sinful but working on their redemption. Take the time to read, to marinate in the profound truths found inside of it. This book is a gem, captured brilliance of ordinary people living the Christian life as best they can. I highly recommend it.
The last in a trilogy of truly inspiring and thought provoking novels, I have been moved from tears to laughter throughout the series. As a non Christian I was firstly dubious about reading "realistic Christian fiction", but it really was exactly that; realistic. Eileen, the main character, is not painted as a paragon of virtue but a normal human being with doubts and flaws; making the best of the hand she has been dealt. The author has an amazing knack of making the reader identify with Eileen whilst questioning their own faith and values.
