“Don’t give us any spoilers,” one of my friends warned me when I told her I was intending to review Undivided by Vicky Beeching. So I shall try not to.
Vicky Beeching, both in her Preface and Final Disclaimers, makes clear what she is writing. “This is not a theology book or an academic essay; it̵...Read Full Post »
