5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read for People in or Preparing for Ministry 6 Oct. 2011
By JMR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Law of Jealousy is an important book in a number of ways. The author does a wonderful job of presenting some of the real life challenges of ministry, marriage, adultery, abuse, sin, forgiveness and so much more. In reading this book I am reminded of the challenges of balancing ministry and family and the importance of spousal equality as a couple encourages one another and partners together in ministry and in the home life. At times we are all faced with the realities of our own egos and although we cringe at the way that Peter treats Eva there are time that will become more like Peter than we care to admit, concerned only for the self and not for the other. It serves as both a reality check and as opportunity to celebrate a redeemed life. The Law of Jealousy is an excellent book and should be a required reading in classes for students preparing for ministry.

I am not a book reader. But I must say this book was awesome! It was very well written and I didn't want to put it down. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a book that keeps you guessing or on your toes. I hope there is another one to follow because I would definately buy it to read! Thumbs up to the author! Great job!
5.0 out of 5 stars Shining a light into dark places 24 Feb. 2013
By Tangle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This story is an exploration of one woman's journey to healing as she struggles to escape an abusive marriage. The story faces the tragedy of domestic abuse head-on, while remaining firmly grounded in hope, faith, and the joy of new beginnings. I enjoyed the cast of many unique and interesting characters, especially the group that coalesces to provide support and encouragement to Eva as she grows through this difficult time in her life. But the most interesting part of the story, for me, was the exploration of the varying reactions on the part of both clergy and lay people within the church, as they face the allegations of domestic abuse made against one of their leaders. Ms. Dunlop's writing style is entertaining, flowing easily, and she writes about human nature and personal relationships, about the church and the community, in a penetrating and insightful way. Once I had read about half-way through, I could not put the book down until I had finished. I look forward to reading more from the pen of Ms. Dunlop!
5.0 out of 5 stars excellent story that needs to be told - and read by pastors everywhere! 27 Sept. 2011
By Gayle L. Brosnan-Watters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just finished The Law of Jealousy by E. Deloryce Dunlop. It is a story about spousal abuse in the church, and the difficulty women who are verbally, emotionally, and even physically abused have in getting fair treatment within the church. In this case, it was the Christian church, and it was mostly about people of color, but the fact is that it can be in any church, and it certainly can be people of any color including white! This book should be read by anyone just wanting a good read, but it should especially be read by people in ministry, including pastors who seem to think that somehow those who are being controlled and/or abused should somehow be able to "live above it" and just trust God to change the person with whom they live. Even if they never do get physically violent, sometimes the emotional abuse is just as severe, or even more so, because no one knows it's going on!
Excellent book, and I highly recommend it.
The Law of Jealousy
5.0 out of 5 stars An engaging novel that goes beyond entertaining! 27 Sept. 2011
By Max Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This moving story will educate those who are unaware of the dynamics of spousal abuse and how social systems, such as the church, may serve to protect and empower the abuser. Also, those who have lived with verbal, emotional, or physical violence will be encouraged and emboldened to create a space of safety and freedom in their lives where they may live genuinely and productively to be who they were created to be. Difficult to put down and compelling to read, this book beckons the reader to enter Eva's world and cheer her on as she overcomes obstacles of hostility and injustice to journey toward healing and wholeness.
