    One thought on “Christopher”

    1. Closer to five stars.Three years ago I received the first novel by David Athey, Danny Gospel a novel I thoroughly enjoyed His new novel Christopherexplores some similar themes, but not a repeat in any way.The story follows Christopher starting at the age of eleven Christopher is a lover of nature and does than to stop to smell the roses, but to really look at a rose His parents are a sort of hold out from the sixties with his mother being into alternative therapies and vegetarianism Christopher [...]

    2. Disclaimer I edited this book for Sophia Institute Press so of course I think it s great A beautiful poetic novel about a young knight in search of the truth and the three girls he falls in love with along the way to seeking the Greatest Love.

    3. Beautifully written I found myself gasping at times, it was so beautiful It is a growing up story, a boy into a man in the gorgeous city of Duluth, MN It s also a story of his search for Truth, which he finds in the Catholic church I enjoyed reading this book, it is lovely and compelling.

Christopher is an engaging story which follows a boy in search of truth Even at a young age, Christopher has the ability to see the presence of the holy in the natural world, yet he does not know God fully Still, his mystical heart continues to search for true love which he must give himself to unconditionally.

    5. What a refreshing book Would recommend it to older teens and up Lots of short chapters that make you want to stay up way too late to see what happens next I am looking forward to reading by this author

    7. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Christopher, and would recommend it to anyone who likes to be moved and grown by a story It s full of incredible pockets of imagery and epiphany that grip you, and cause you to pause and give space to them within yourself.The author is no doubt a poet this shows through in Athey s perception of the natural world and the inner life of a young man as he comes of age However, this is not simply a coming of age story it is also a dance of pursuit and retreat between Chri [...]
