BOOKS

During the time I’ve had my blog, I’ve always kept a list of the books I’ve been reading. I had envisioned wonderful reviews of every book, but never made that a reality. So I’ve been trying to clean it up and write a little bit at least about each book, giving each one its own page instead of just a link to Amazon.

It’s horribly uneven…some I’ve just quickly given a sentence, others a synopsis, a very few have gotten creative treatment. But, something is better than nothing…I hope!

Here’s a beautiful perk to marriage that I never imagined…I find my own church and theology books, but Elaine reads lots of stuff. She’s in a book group and she loves reading. So, whenever I do read a non-pastor-type book, it’s always a great book, because Elaine only gives me the best!
