While browsing my college library's section on Christianity, I came across the two volumes of Russel E. Miller's "The Larger Hope". I checked out the first volume (Subtitled "The First Century of the Universalist Church in America, 1770-1870"). I have only read the first two chapters so far, but what an awesome read! These two chapters focus on John Murray, the "founder of American Universalism". While I already had a deep respect for John Murray before, it has grown by leaps aqnd bounds reading this biography of his life. I am getting ready to start the third chapter (which seems to focus on the theology of the early Universalist Church, focusing on Murray and his contemporaries). I am so psyched about this book! It was so hard to put it down in Business Law 101 in order to take the quarter's first exam and follow the subsequent lecture on **yawn!** torts.
Has anyone else read this book? Does it remain this riveting throughout the book?
