Read

I can’t get rid of my books.  I have too many, and there are always more.  And there will always be more.  Books are a part of my spiritual heritage and a part of who I am, and having the Bible and a set of “tutors” in the faith – authors whose words have challenged me, uplifted me, soothed me – has meant a lot to me over the years.  Because of that, I’ll be starting a book review section here of books both old and new.

Reviews

Henri Nouwen’s The Return of the Prodigal Son

John Ortberg’s If You Want To Walk On Water, You’ve Got To Get Out Of The Boat

Just Like Jesus, Max Lucado
