Books I’m reading or have reserved from the library. (I see fines in my future.)
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin, by Erik Larson. I downloaded this to our iPad since I was still #508 in line for a library copy. I’ve read about 200 pages and can’t wait to follow this book with the new Bonhoeffer biography.
Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, by Eric Metaxas
Invitations from God: Accepting God’s Offer to Rest, Weep, Forgive, Wait, Remember and More: by Adele Ahlberg Calhoun
Writing Life: by Annie Dillard. Great for writers who want to learn the craft from one of its masters.
On Writing Well: by William Zinsser. Want to cut the fluff from your writing? Read this book.
Shepherding a Child’s Heart: by Ted Tripp. Revisiting this book with a moms’ group from our church and looking forward to rethinking its ideas. It’s always a privilege to consider a biblical vision for parenting and to do so in community.
The Lost World of Genesis One: Ancient Cosmology and the Origins Debate: by John Walton. The children are more and more curious about the discussion of evolution and creationism, and this book comes highly recommended from a trusted friend.
Pentateuch as Narrative: by John Sailhammer. The next issue I’m writing for Today in the Word is on Leviticus. Ouch. That’s going to require just a wee bit of study.
