“Though None Go with Me” by Jerry B. Jenkins


I finished Jerry B. Jenkins’ “Though None Go with Me” and enjoyed the complexities of Elisabeth’s romance with Will. She was “a fool for Christ and a fool for Will.”

Elisabeth dedicates her life to God and obedience to Christ. I could not read or listen to this heart-wrenching story in one sitting. Yet Elisabeth’s hardship, pain, and sorrow reflect the struggles many people experience during a lifetime and ring true. I questioned Elisabeth’s rash decision and lack of stewardship to hand over the twentieth-century Victorian family home to Aunt Agatha.

But as a reader, I learned from Elisabeth’s hourly, daily, and lifetime service for God that, in the end, faith triumphs over tragedy.
