What Am I Reading?

I love to review books. It makes me think about what I'm reading more deeply and forces me to understand multiple facets of the book that I might not have thought of otherwise. However, I mostly review the Christian life/theological books that I read. Not fiction. Ironic for an aspiring novelist, I know. So today... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Cure

We can never resolve our sin by working on it. That was the first line of many that made me literally catch my breath and stare for a few minutes as I read The Cure by John Lynch, Bruce McNicol, and Bill Thrall. A few pages into chapter one and I was already filled with a... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Rediscovering Humility

We often define sanctification as "becoming more like Christ." A more apt definition might be "resting more in Christ's love." One of the major sins that many Christians try to sanctify themselves out of is the sin of pride. I've just finished reading the book Rediscovering Humility by Christopher Hutchinson that addresses the attempt to eliminate... Continue Reading →

Following Orders is going to rest for a while (maybe forever) and I am turning my attention to a new work. The working title of this story... Continue Reading →

In my mind, Mary Poppins belongs to the latter group. Mary Poppins is the story of a nanny and the family for whom she works. Mary Poppins, Jane, Michael, and the... Continue Reading →

I never thought I would enjoy Robinson Crusoe. Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe was assigned in a literature class I am taking this year as the second book of the semester. I entered into it with a slight sense of dread, trying to temper that with the hope that it wouldn't be as bad as I thought... Continue Reading →

Staircase to Hell

One quick thing before today's post: I was published on the Rebelution this week! If you remember my post on complaining from a few weeks ago, they published it on their site under the name 5 Things I Learned on My Quest to Stop Complaining. And now on to our regularly scheduled program. This week's... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Prisoner of Zenda

After my post of a few weeks ago bemoaning the depravity of today's literature, let me assure that there are indeed still excellent books in the world. Books that spin a tale of adventure and keep you up far later than is right (oops). The Prisoner of Zenda is one such book. Rudolph Rassendyll is a... Continue Reading →
