Review: Jamie Grace, Forbidden and Self-Help
Recorded another Premier Review show today due to be aired on 13 March at 4pm. Jules Rendell and I reviewed two (awful) books: ‘Forbidden’ – a “lipstick confession” novel based on the story of David and Bathsheba – and ‘God Give Me Victory Over Anger’ – a “self-help” book steeped in demonic possession and Biblical literalism, and Jamie Grace’s album ‘One Song At A Time’, which was excellent (mix of R&B, folk, pop, acoustic). The last track on her album was particularly strong.
