Book Review: Living Love ... In conversation with the No. 1 Ladies Detective Age

Book Review: “Living Love: In conversation with the No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” by John Inge (2007) Inspire.

Some of you may well have enjoyed reading the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency novels by Alexander McCall Smith, or watched the BBC drama series which was broadcast a few years ago, but you may not have expected the novels to become the focus of a book on theology, written by the present Bishop of Worcester, John Inge. In “Living Love ...” Bishop John examines the life of Mma Ramotswe, the heroine of the novels and a good and wise woman, to reveal what makes for a a good and godly life. Mma Ramotswe, the owner of the first ladies’ detective agency in Botswana, clearly sees people through the eyes of God, looking for the best in people, pursuing harmony in relationships wherever possible, forgiving weakness, pursuing justice and peace and loving her neighbours. Central to the stories is the value given to friendship, which lies at the heart of human relationship. If you enjoyed the novels, this book will add a deeper dimension to your enjoyment.
