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.

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 Book Review: The Prisoner of Zenda
