Hello, dear readers!
I thought that for fun today, I would give you a taste of what I've been reading over the past, say, four to six months. And so, without further ado, here is a glimpse into all of the radical, counter-culture, seditious literature that has been forming my literary ventures (i.e. when I lock myself in the bathroom to brush my teeth without company and read for two minutes before diving back into the fray).
"Amazing Grace: The History and Theology of Calvinism" - We actually watched the video edition of this, and it took us about three or more months to finish (we did perhaps 15 minutes per night). Wonderful material, very well done, and it sparked some wonderful conversations!! I highly recommend this film.
"What Is Reformed Theology?" by R. C. Sproul - It doesn't get much better than Sproul... and this was great! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am not new to the doctrines of grace, so this wasn't too hard to wade through, but I still think it would be a good intro for anyone studying reformed theology.
"The Coconut Oil Miracle" - I've heard about this book for years and finally decided to look it up! Some of the nutritional info is a bit dated, but it's a great source of information about coconut oil and the health benefits thereof.
"Raising Godly Tomatoes" - I would be lying if I said that I wasn't doing a fair bit of nail-biting as I anticipate the rapidly approaching "terrible twos" - which, as we all know, are really the "terrible one-two-three-fours." Frankly, I shiver at the very thought. That being the case, I am nervously thumbing through my favorite parenting book in order to be ready (and to do all the training I can before the dreaded tantrum age begins). *Shiver*
"In God We Trust: Why Biblical Authority Matters for Every Believer" by Steve Ham - This book was excellent! Thoroughly eye-opening, and it gave me so much to think about. Highly recommended!
..."Why Won't They Listen? The Power of Creation Evangelism" by Ken Ham - More great stuff by the same great guy! I'm currently in the middle of it, and it is really good stuff. I love it when people bring up things that are very evident in the Bible, but which have completely escaped me for the time. Good stuff.
British history and politics, and it was both informative and a joy to read.
"A Weed in the Church" - The companion book to the film "Divided." It was definitely an "Ack! I can't put this book down!" type of book. I enjoyed this tremendously!
So.... have all y'all been reading anything stupendous and life-changing recently? Do tell!
