I love books about the middle ages so I immediately grabbed this book. I was very disappointed with the author's writing style. He includes many unnecessary details, which detract from the story. In fact, it is so irritating that I really had to force myself to finish the book. It reminds me of something a six year old would write.

Great book , in spite of my misgivings at first! Aug. 25 2009
By Martha A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I hesitated to read this book for review as I hate posting reviews about books I do not like alot, and when I saw it was about the Winslows and by Gilbert Morris, I wondered if I would be able to like it! But since I know that some of Gilbert Morris books I have loved as well as hated some, I got it and I am glad I did. It may be a precursor to the long House of Winslow series, but you do not see it in this book. I loved the story!
It really wound alot of history through it with King Henry lllV, Anne Boleyn, William Tyndale, and other well known characters in history through it. If these were the ancestors of the House of Winslow, he did an excellent job of telling a good story of their history. Don't get me wrong, I loved the House of Winslow series, the first several that is.... Anyhow, if you enjoy a good historical fictional story, you will enjoy this one. True to Gilbert Morris fashion, the young man in the story is somewhat wild though before coming to Christ, but there is a conversion and change in him that is obvious and not a overnight switch. But because of some of the things mentioned in his wild part of his life, I would recommend this for older readers

Good story, bad history Sept. 8 2010
By tiara510 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very hopeful for this book, but was pretty disappointed. I have read many historical fiction novels about the time period this book takes place in, so when historical inaccuracies showed up in this one, it was glaringly obvious. Queen Catherine would not have been still at court at when point in the story when it puts her there and the main character would not have had the access and familiarity with the royal family that he had. It was so unrealistic at points it was painful for me to read. I did like the story of redemption and how Morris tied in the story of the English translation on the Bible, but for historical accuracy, this one gets a big C-.

The Winslow Legacy Continues... March 15 2011
By Katie McCurdy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Gilbert Morris - known as the grandfather of Christian fiction - has once again crafted a wonderful story set around the time that William Tyndale began translating the bible into the English language. But the story is not of this brave man who gave his life to bringing the Word of God to the common people. Instead, it is the story of Claiborn and Stuart Winslow's life. The book begins with Claiborn's story and then continues on to give Stuart's life the center stage.

He attracts the attention of the king as a young man and lives in the King's courts, where evil runs thick and is openly accepted. Characters often discuss the different affairs King Henry VIII became involved in, but they don't go into much detail except naming the mistresses. While Gilbert doesn't shirk from showing the immorality and adultery that ran high in the courts, he doesn't go much farther than telling it like it was. It was sad and sobering to watch Stuart fall - throwing away his money, purity, and honor - but the message the author conveyed through Stuart's testimony was strong. Stuart fell, but God raised him up.

The writing was different from what I am used to, but it wasn't difficult to read and after a few pages, I was used to it. It was a bit different in that the book opens up with Claiborn and Grace as main characters, and then halfway through the book shifts to their son, Stuart, as the main character.

The culture of that time was really neat to read about. I really enjoy reading a book where I actually learn something about that time period - and that's how it is in "Honor in the Dust"! I have read a few of Gilbert Morris' books through the years, and this is one of my favorites. It really picks up towards the end and for the last hundred pages I could not stop. A very recommendable read.

I received this book from Christian Review of Books in exchange for writing this review. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.

My First Gilbert Morris, and not my last!! Aug. 29 2009
By Margaret C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Honor in the Dust" is my first experience reading a book by Gilbert Morris if you can believe that with my loving Christian Historical Fiction, but you can believe that it will not be my last. This being a prequel for a previous Winslow Series, I am excited that there are already some books for me to jump back to as well as being excited for the rest of the Winslow Breed series to come in 2010 and 2011. Set in England in the time period of King Henry VIII makes an interesting background as the story goes through two generations and really brings a reader to care about the families and individual characters involved, one can really see the young men grow and blossom in their relationships.

There are many themes in this book. Besides from being a good read overall, there are lessons available to learn. From similarities in life to Biblical lessons to trying to hold strong in ones "honor" in a temptation arena, the challenges are realistic and hard. With historical characters such as Queen Catherine, King Henry VIII, and William Tyndale make it very interesting. There is sword play and adventure, betrayal and romance, espionage and disguise and a dozen other features that make this an all around enjoyable read.

I was enthralled with this story. It was awesome! Sept. 29 2009
By Michelle Sutton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Honor in the Dust blew me away. I was totally enthralled by the book and didn't want to put it down. I don't think I've ever read a book by Gilbert Morris before, though my husband has and he seemed to enjoy the stories. Now I can see why.

This novel truly impressed me. For people who love reading about King Henry VIII and his many problems having a son, his issues with the church, and his numerous affairs, this will definitely fit that taste. However, the book is more about God using William Tyndale to translate the Bible into English so the common people could read God's word. It follows the infamous Winslow clan that Gilbert is known for creating for his many House of Winslow books.

I love stories that delve so much into the culture that you feel like you are there. Morris does this well with just enough detail to make the setting come alive, but without grossing you out at the same time. He also lets his characters mess things up and suffer the consequences. He doesn't gloss over their sin and the shame that comes with it.

Morris also does a fantastic job of putting his characters into seemingly impossible situations and having God and/or His people come through for them, but not every single time. Life isn't like that and Morris doesn't portray it that way. However, when good triumphs over evil and when God changes the hearts of several characters, as a reader I couldn't help cheering for them. I thoroughly enjoyed this story.
