Excellent Christian Accounts

(5 Sterne)

These are what I don't hear nowadays: accounts gathered together to encourage both Christians and non-Christians to live lives that have eternal worth. It is easy to misunderstand the emphasis on certain social aspects of Victorian life. In an era without medical hygiene and pharmaceutical advantages there was a death in every family. Alcoholism was a curse that was fought with all the fervour of today's "Black Lives Matter", gay rights, and knife / gun crime campaigns. Yes, there was class division, racism and illiteracy, but there was also a work ethic and a recognition of that ethic that allowed people to lift out of the street gutters and into employment. This was a culture within Victorian society which aimed high because it had set before it the highest principles, and was honest about its failures and rejoiced in its successes. I don't find these principles or these encouragements nowadays, except in the empty platitudes of Internet images and feel-good stories. Today needs these accounts.

Didnt finish

(0,5 Sterne)

Dnf. I listened to about eight of the many stories in this volume. Stories is a misnomer; although they have the format of stories, they were undoubtedly intended to be sermons. About half the stories I read were on the evils of alcohol, and these little sermons were particularly pathetic. There's probably some decent stories among these sermons, but the book is 10 hours long, and I don't want to persist with a book of that length just to find a few good short stories.

Some lovely stories.

(3 Sterne)

There were some good stories, others with a moral and yet others that were exaggerated and soppy. Of great interest was the many voices and accents, making me realise how many people give their time generously.
