Hello, folks! (or floks… silly typing fingers.)
I thought that it might be fun to start a little series here on the blog, in which I share some of the famous people/historical figures/fictional characters I’d like to chat with over coffee. Of course, coffee dates with these people aren’t really possible, but it’s fun to think about! 🙂
For today… here are my five top picks from fictional books!
Jo March (Little Women)
I would so love to chat with this lady! I’ve enjoyed her story ever since I was little. She just has such a fun personality, and the lessons she learned in Little Women are so, so good. I love the dialogue in Louisa May Alcott’s books, and so hearing Jo tell stories would be priceless.
Daniel bar Jamin (The Bronze Bow)
Another character from another favorite book… I really appreciate the character development Daniel experiences in The Bronze Bow, and it would be fascinating to talk with him about his spiritual journey. I would also love to ask him more about his conversation with Jesus… and learn more about what Jesus is like from the perspective of someone who talked with Him face-to-face.
Demetrius (The Robe)
The book really left you cliff-hanging as to what happened to Demetrius, so I would appreciate learning about what happened to him… especially since he was one of my favorite characters. I would love to learn more of the details as to what happened before, during, and after the Crucifixion.
Dobro Turtlebane (The Bark of the Bog Owl)
This guy just cracks me up. Hearing him talk about his crazy adventures would be hilarious. Not sure I would want to be seen with him in public, though…
Screwtape (The Screwtape Letters)
This probably sounds really weird and creepy, but it would be fascinating to talk with him. I learned so much from “his” letters about how Satan can work against me… understanding more of his strategies so I can better combat him would be really awesome.
