“Real Marriage” Review: 123 – 138, “Disgrace and Grace”

black-and-white-50s

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons [content note: sexual violence and victim blaming] This chapter was a … struggle. I’ve known it was coming for a while, but I wasn’t certain how bad it would be.

“Real Marriage” Review: 86 – 106: ‘Taking out the Trash’

trash

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons I wish you all could read the entirely of this chapter because it is ironic. One of these days I’ll have to create a whole series of posts dedicated to page 89, where Mark defines repentance, comparing that to his actual real-life behavior, because it is hysterical. Not only does he fail his own list of “pastoral requirements,” he also bombs at his own definition of repentance– and you can read the whole thing here. … [Read more...]
