Have you ever read “Streiker’s Bride” by Robin Hardy? Ever since I read it several years ago, it’s been one of my favorite. In fact, I’ve read it about four times, and I’m a person who NEVER re-reads a novel.
It’s an allegory of the greatest love affair—Jesus wooing and winning His beloved. But in the book his name is Fletcher Streiker, a billionnaire in a real American setting. I don’t want to share too much and spoil the story for you.
The reason I love it is that there is so much in this story about how the Lord Jesus loves me passionately, provides everything I need, allows trials to help me learn, loves to hear me share my heart with Him in prayer, cares for and protects me via His servants (heavenly or earthly), and is coming back for me someday to whisk me off to His home in that Other World.
No, I’m not being paid for this advertisement. (It’s available for sale on the Internet.)
But in the reviews we just looked at, it gets 10 five-star reviews and one four-star—none below that. Nuff said .
