      When I was much younger, I went through a phase where I read a lot of Westerns, particularly Louis L Amour and Zane Grey But in the last few years the only westerns I ve read have been mostly the Wagons West series by Dana Fuller Ross, and Lonesome Dove I loved Lonesome Dove, and after that wonderful experience I began collecting westerns when I came across them at library sales and such So when I received an email from Open Road Media, inviting me to review SANCTUARY via NetGalley, I took the p [...]

      Sanctuary is a heavy handed Christian allegory set in late the 1800 s in small Montana town named Sanctuary By heavy handed I mean the Christian influence is prominent throughout the story and I found the hero, a preacher named Mordecai, a bit beyond belief in his omnipotence and his actions As a Christian, I believe in the kindness Mordecai portrays to the poor Cree Indians I just didn t find the story to be a realistic Western in the sense of Louis L Amour, Larry McMurtry, etc.I rated the stor [...]

      This is a reissue of this book and I am glad it is I found this to be a very enjoyable and quick read I don t think I would have come across this western any other way It starts off with a man arriving at the train station in Sanctuary Montana, and he is unlike most men who wear a preacher s collar He drinks whiskey with the men in the saloon, plays cards and unlike the men in town he stands up for the outcasts of the town They are really the ones that make the story, it is like he knows about t [...]

      This is one of the most powerful novels I have read in a dog s age A preacher arrives in a little Montana town in the late 1800s and almost immediately he begins to help people the old drunk doctor who now just sweeps out the bar, for example, and many others, especially the Indians, rejected by the whites, starving, and living by the dump.Yet this preacher is something approaching Jesus he brings love, help for those who need it and at the end, faces a similar irate and crazy mob Jesus faced in [...]

      miscategorized as a straight western it s an unusual little book, has an interesting spin on some classic christian themes, a really intense ending, and some really poetic writing i don t think a single gunshot gets fired in the book, and the preacher who is the main character definitely never holds a rifle, despite being pictured on the front cover holding a rifle.
