Spirit of Sweetgrass

A new book.

I have serious problems with this book's premise. Although everyone has a right to their own opinion, I have a problem with a book catagorized as "Christian Fiction" and it go off the deep end like this one does.

The reason I have a problem is because "The SPIRIT OF SWEETGRASS shifts less successfully to the afterlife, where her Gullah-Creole ancestors surround her; but soon, her heavenly peace is disrupted, for she still has work to do. Now Essie Mae, who once felt powerless and invisible, must find the strength within her to keep her South Carolina family from falling apart. Together, with Daddy Jim, they team up to return to Earth and battle two spirits conjured up by Henrietta's voodoo that threatens to ruin an attempt to save the sweetgrass basket weaving culture."

Jesus emphatically and clearly states that we do not "come back to earth" to "fix problems". That is found in Luke 16... Jesus tells us about Lazarus and the Rich Man. Lazarus was not allowed to go back and warn anyone of anything.

For me this book pushes the envelope way to wide... so wide, everything falls out on the floor.
