GILEAD: A NOVEL by Marilynne Robinson

WHY I LIKE IT
No less than John Piper says this book captures the feel of the pastorate, which is no small feat, since Robinson has never been a pastor. I've enjoyed Robinson's other novels, but none has yet topped her Pulitzer Prize-winning account of John Ames in the Iowa town of Gilead.

The 2004 Pulitzer Prize winning novel
A New York Times Top-Ten Book of 2004
Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction

Nearly 25 years after Housekeeping, Marilynne Robinson returns with an intimate tale of three generations, from the Civil War to the 20th century: a story about fathers and sons and the spiritual battles that still rage at America's heart. In the words of Kirkus, it is a novel "as big as a nation, as quiet as thought, and moving as prayer. Matchless and towering." Gilead tells the story of America and will break your heart.
