Hints of Heaven is a compilation of essays that are directed at individual parables found in the Bible. It was a totally different type of book for me to read, and completely out of my comfort zone, which is something I always try to do during a reading challenge such as this. I found some glimpses of great insight into some of parables in the Bible within this book. It was a quick read, only about 150 pages, with each essay being about two pages long. This was nice so that I could stop at any time really and not lose my thoughts or place.
While some of the reflections were nice to read, the author is a little too ”fire and brimstone” for me. Since he is a priest, this may not be surprising for some, but not all priests are that way.
Overall, I’m glad I read this. I don’t think I’d recommend it as a casual read, but if you are interested in theology or Catholicism, give it a go.
Overall rating: 3.5/5
