Winter is reading time. Never mind the beach with its sand and flies and barking dogs. Shut-in-from-the-cold winter is the time for books. As usual, there is more than one in process piled on my table. Current list:
Just finished “Everybody’s Normal Till You Get to Know Them” by John Ortberg. Funny as ever, with a serious message hidden midst the laughter.
“The Priestly Bride” by Anna Rountree – lifts the God-hungry heart to a place of intense longing, almost to a point of pain. Beautiful word painting of our Beloved.
“Redefining the Role of Women in the Church ” by Dr. James T. Davis. The best I have ever read on what Scripture really says about the role of women, and how distortions over the years have kept 50% of the Body of Christ in bondage. Excellent Bible study as well.
“Pen on Fire” by Barbara DeMarco-Barrett. Clearly written encouragement for would be writers, with excercises at the conclusion of each chapter.
New Additions to the Pile:
“The Throne Room Company “by Shawn Bolz
“The Supernatural Power of a Transformed Mind” by Bill Johnson.
“Soul Tsunami” by Dr. Leonard Sweet (a gift this Christmas)
“Growing Old Ain’t for Wimps” (gift from my housemate, Margaret.)
Some time I want to get to “Divine Conspiracy” by Dallas Willard. Guess we could use a long winter. Put the coffe on and another log on the fire….and maybe even unplug the phone!
