This is a fascinating biblical episode, about the "keys" Jesus gave to Peter (Mt. 16) and the much disputed "baptism of the Holy Spirit." Mr. Zarley uses Matthew to illuminate what happens in Acts; he argues that Peter's "keys" explain why in Acts some groups do, and others don't immediately receive the the Spirit when they believe. You're going to really enjoy this wide-ranging biblical discussion. podcast 127 - Kermit Zarley's Solving the Samaritan Riddle OR listen on Youtube

Paula Huston co-hosted a conversation with the authors of The Risk of Returning—another recent novel set in the same landscape as A Land Without Sin: revolutionary Central America. Paula, Rudy, and Shirley sat down to talk about why they were both pulled toward so many of the same themes, both political and religious. You can read their conversation at Books & Culture.
A Land Without Sin receives a warm review from Catholic Fiction. "Eva is an endearing character. Her wry observations on what’s going on around her are often very funny. Her cynicism felt authentic, and it was interesting to watch her closed heart open just enough to give the impression that her own faith journey is far from over."
