Summary The Unspeakable A Novel ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Free read The Unspeakable A Novel Al mentor whom Whit has not seen in than twenty years But much has changed Always somewhat unconventional Marbury is now mute speaking only in sign language his voice reportedly stolen by God on a trip that he took through western Pennsylvania On that same journey in a snowstorm that nobody can verify Marbury encountered a terrible car accident and a family who changed his life. Forgiveness Healing Faith What they look like what they cost Calia takes on the Big Stuff of life in this book his first apparently and I hope not his last It s not easy to do this without falling into easy answers ponderousness or stereotypes but Calia manages it His characters are memorable and unpredictable with than a little Flannery O Connor in them And the story completely avoids getting bogged down in preachiness Where others might use a sledgehammer Calia s touch is light as snowThe structure of the book is unusual and reminded me a bit of the film My Dinner with Andr in that it consists almost entirely of two men in discussion telling stories that defy belief but keep your somewhat incredulous attention I did get a little impatient with the start and stop approach to the stories but I understood why the author used it to create suspense In the end the only part I just couldn t buy into was the church hierarchy s refusal to entertain the idea of the miraculous and its threats to remove a priest who might actually heal people I think Calia was a bit heavy handed there in a book that otherwise treated its subjects with a light touch But that s a small misstep in an otherwise remarkable book

Summary The Unspeakable A Novel ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Free read The Unspeakable A Novel The Unspeakable tells the story of two men both priests whose strange and divergent paths collide Peter Whit an administrator for the Diocese of St Paul is asked to investigate and ultimately discredit a priest who it is rud possesses a remarkable power the power to healThe priest in uestion Jim Marbury is no stranger to Whit He is an old friend a seminary roommate and a spiritu. Two priests friends since seminary one traditional and now working as an administrator in the diocese the other shrouded in controversy because he s said to be able to heal others and working in a small church filled with those who can t hear This is the premise behind The Unspeakable by Charles L Calia Peter Whit an administrator at the diocese is asked by the Bishop to investigate the claims of Jim Marbury being able to heal others Peter who knows Marbury is assigned to investigate what s going on Marbury who claims God has stolen his voice is now mute and unable to talk but Peter is able to converse because he too knows sign language The story revolves around a miracle Marbury claims happened in PA on his way to a seminar however Whit who s already skeptical of Marbury s claims begins his investigation into the events and can t find any proof that Marbury s story is true The story is mainly dialogue between the two priests and goes back and forth between present day days in the seminary as friends and the miracle that happened in PA The story is extremely thought provoking and even though I don t consider myself religious in any way I found I too was wondering Can a mere mortal heal others in the name of God Marbury who is being threatened with a transfer to another church or even excommunication stands by his claims that there are those that can heal Whit tries to break through his story and discover why he won t talk even though Marbury says God stole his voice after the event in PA This one was of a book of deep thought and wonderment for me I found it extremely interesting and informative Like I said I don t know much about organized religion but did learn a few things while reading this one I think the author did an excellent job of portraying each of these men as men of God but also as mere mortal men with all the flaws and detriments that go along with that It was a uick read for me as I couldn t uit turning pages to find out what was going to happen next Can other s heal in the name of God Can we hold God responsible for bad things that happen to others These are a couple of the uestions I continued to ask myself while reading this book I didn t come away with any real answers but I thoroughly enjoyed every word of it Again very thought provoking and a good book to delve into if you ve ever wondered what are the rules when it comes to God Something to really think about Happy Reading
