Soul Cry Book Review:
“Soul Cry” written by Oliva Shaw is a marvelous masterpiece in my personal opinion as a loyal Christian reader. The narrative was truly about what life is really define as. I love reading stories that have a Christian based messages that can transforms life through the developed characters. Oliva Shaw allows God to guide the pen to created an image in a format of a wonderful story that is truly to life as the struggles of a Christian. The characters were developed as lovable and at the same time hate worthy. Also the Characters were very believable that I am being minister personally through Oliva Shaw’s writing. Oliva Shaw really need to consider to turning “Soul Cry” into a movie or a television mini series.
Oftentimes, we hold onto relationship that clearly isn’t the best for us. God will allows things happen to us so we can be inspired to allow God in everything that we do. For the character, Jamika allowed much more in her marriage with Jalen than a person who knows their worth have on any given moment. “Soul Cry” is a fiction story butthis kind of situation does happens in life. The character Jalen really got on my last nerve. He portray himself as a Spirit filled Pastor but behind closed doors he is a sheep in wolf clothes. He beats up his wife, Jamika and have affairs with different woman. His behavior really cause Jamika to end her life. Jalen made her feel like a piece of trash and he doesn’t care of anyone but himself. He is a monster in the pulpit and a hypocrite. “Soul Cry” shows us a scenery in the Church Community that just because we are Christian that doesn’t mean we are immune from heartache and problems. “Soul Cry” shows us the patterns of generational curse in families through the Characters of Jamika’s mother down to Jamika herself. That generational curse can be broken if we allowed ourselves to heal by sharing the history of Domestic Violence, drug abused, drinking problems with your children and not keep it a secret. Thank God there were a happy ending for Jamika and she discover her worth. Also she got the support from her mother and a new man that loves and respect her.
