Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Review: The Hunter and the Valley of Death by Brennan McPherson


Experience the psalms like never before - through heart-pounding fiction!

The Hunter and the Valley of Death is a profound meditation on life, death, loss, and love. Formatted as a fantasy parable based on Psalm 23, this story shows that there is only one who could kill Death, and because of him, and him alone, we say, "Oh, Death, where is your sting?"
A man who calls himself Hunter wakes up in the Valley of Death and realizes he's given up everything to attempt to kill Death so that he can bring his Love back to life - but when he fails, who will be there to rescue him? 
Each book in The Psalm Series comes with an in-depth Bible study of the psalm the story is based on, and an explanation of the author's approach to the Scripture text. The Hunter and the Valley of Death comes with an additional, in-depth explanation of the story's symbolism. 

This makes The Psalm Series a great addition to Bible study materials. Dive deep today into fictional stories that help you wrap your heart around the Bible's most beloved poems of praise! "

This book was poignant in its representation. I felt some strong emotions throughout the whole thing. The wording was almost too flowery at times in its elegance, but all in all it made for a delightful story that took you away. The story itself was a pretty cool way to bring Psalm 23 to life. It was a pretty quick read and I would recommend this to people who enjoy Biblical re-tellings or those who enjoy fantasy, because this is a bit fantasy-like in its retelling. The characters were very alive... and I enjoyed this book. 4.5 stars for this novella.
