THE WHOLE ARMOR by Faith Baldwin


Email this review


More of a magnum opus for Faith Baldwin, this abandons the lilies of the field on Park Avenue for the more sober, spiritual story of a minister, young Paul Lennox, and the many conflicts which come his way. Understanding toward other, if uncompromising towards himself, Paul is able to handle the problems of his parishioners as well as his younger brother Tim, unstable and alcoholic. But more limited in his knowledge of himself, he rejects the love of Connie feeling that her aims and his are disparate, realizes his error, and again is faced by his own spiritual shortcoming when he contracts infantile paralysis, experiences a weakening of his faith in himself and in God....If the intentions here are more serious, the results are still only rental, effortlessly so.
