    I am so glad I only waited a month between reading parts one and two of this book It really is just one book split into two parts and I could not leave Emilio for too long suffering the way he was at the end of part one.Emilio Sandoz is one of those book characters who jumps off the page and out of the book Whenever he is no

    I loved this but then I expected no less since I felt the same about it s predecessor, The Sparrow This book picks up right where The Sparrow left off In my opinion neither of these books are easy reads, by that I mean something I could whiz through Part of it is the time lines taking place, part is the completely foreign names and culture I only wish I had read thi

    This is not a stand alone book The Sparrow is essential to have read Without that background story, Children of God would be confusing at times This was a seamless continuation of The Sparrow and really can be considered one book The story picks up where The Sparrow left off Woven throughout this work is the concept of Faith in God, self, others How one s faith in one s present c
