On the whim that someone may care; a tidy list of my current reading adventures… with links of course.
Just diving in to a couple-three narratives by Carley Eason Evans, Lyn Leahz, and Rebecca Forster; their titles respective:
“The Eight-Foot Boy” – Carley Eason Evans
“Tim Holden is the tallest kid in class, and the most bored, dissolving into tears every day after school for the six weeks he is forced to attend. His parents decide to homeschool him, but neither wants the job. They hire Scott Flanders, an unemployed philosopher, to tutor their son. Soon, Scott discovers there is much more to Tim than meets the eye.”
“Soul Deceiver” – Lyn Leahz
“Ms. Leahz masterfully weaves this end-times thriller with excitement, murder, intrigue, romance and mystery. This fast-paced prophetic classic will leave you breathless and eagerly awaiting the second book in Ms. Leahz’s trilogy.”
“Hostile Witness” – Rebecca Forster
“When sixteen-year-old Hannah Sheraton is arrested for the murder of her step-grandfather, the chief justice of the California Supreme court, her distraught mother turns to her old college roommate, Josie Bates, for help.”
No doubt we’ll soon lend a word of our thoughts on these writes, but I can tell you; all three authors are excellent writers so you don’t have to wait on our appraisal. Go get em’!
Tim Keller is steadily pumping out a series of works titled “Encounters with Jesus.” He’s on something like the seventh of these efforts, so you have some catching up to do if you weren’t aware of them. The most recent, “The Two Advocates” is a marvelous presentation of our two defense attorneys we have as believers. “Jesus is speaking to God for us while the Holy Spirit is speaking to us for us.” Awesome! These are relatively short reads, but packed with punches.
I’ve barely cracked open “Jesus Killed My Church” by Randy Bohlender, but after a couple of chapters, I’m ready to recommend this one highly. I am very grateful to have stumbled onto this author.
There’s a few more I’m delving in to, but I wanted to close with the recommendation of “The Chronological Study Bible” put forth by Thomas Nelson. This is the tool I’ve chosen for my read-through-the-Word this year. It is fascinating to read the Bible this way. The assemblers put a great deal of effort into aligning Scripture by time stamp here so that, as an example, when one reads of David’s persecution from Saul, a Psalm may be interjected that David wrote in response. It also is very helpful to read the gospels presented this way.
You know well of my endeavor to read everything ever written… so, any suggestions from your vantage?
