On My Bookshelf This Week
That and one of my favorite Christian novel sets. They’re the kind I can read quickly because I already know what’s going to happen. And I’ve read them so many times I could probably recite several sections word for word.
Please tell me you do that, too. Please.
So here’s what I’ve been reading lately.
* Stuck by Jennie Allen. This book and the next were great finds at Pages for Pennies, our local fundraiser for the public library, so they only cost me $1. Stuck is a study about identifying the hindrances that keep us from living the victorious lives God wants us to have. It’s eight lessons that include study questions, journal prompts and spaces to write out Scripture. Loved this one!
* Dressed To Kill by Rick Renner. This is an amazing book about the full armor of God in Ephesians 6. With tons of interesting information about Roman soldiers and their battle dress, it’s a great way to study a passage of Scripture we already know from a different perspective. My favorite thing about this book, though, is the extensive study of the Greek words Paul used and explaining them all in context. Amazing.
* The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. This is the study book I’m working through now, and it’s very good so far. Everything she writes is backed up with Scripture, and she shares some amazing truths that apply to new wives and experienced wives alike. I always study with a highlighter, and there is a lot of yellow in these first few chapters already.
* A Place Called Home series by Lori Wick. I have almost every book she has ever written, and they’re the best ones to read again and again. Sometimes you need interesting characters, an intriguing plot and God’s word as the focal point, and these books deliver on all three counts. They’re the perfect books for when you need a little escape from your own troubles, and they are incredibly uplifting. This is probably my favorite series Lori Wick ever wrote.
