Life Through Pages

Here's some updates on the new books I'm currently reading. This should give you a little glimpse into what's going on with me (outside of finishing that thesis of course).

The Christian fiction book I'm reading right now is Petra: City in Stone. This is another book by T. L. Higley that I thought I'd read before I got to Pompeii: City of Fire: A Novel which is the next book for the Christian Fiction Book Club.  One of the endorsements at the beginning of my copy is from Colleen Coble who says "I'd never read a book as compelling as Francine Rivers's A Voice in the Wind-until I read Petra by T.L. Higley!" If you know how much I love the Mark of the Lion trilogy then you know I consider this very high praise indeed and really look forward to reading it.

I've also recently started a bible study with a small group of girls and we're going through Walking in Power, Love, and Discipline: 1 And 2 Timothy and Titus (The New Inductive Study Series). This is a day by day inductive bible study on the pastoral letters from Paul. I've never done an inductive study before, and I'm interested to see how well it works out. If anything, we're going to at least get a more in depth look at these three books of the Bible and have a good time of encouraging fellowship.

Last, but certainly not least, is Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream.  Our college group is going through this study and meeting once a week to discuss. I see this book challenging me greatly and I look forward to sharing those challenges and hearing from others. I'm praying that I'm able to keep an open heart and mind on this one. I would appreciate your prayers for the same.

Please also remember all those who are hurting after the series of storms we've had roll through here over the last couple of days. We're doing fine, but there are many north and south of us who have lost family, friends, homes, etc.  Please continue to pray for them and look for ways to help. It's been so amazing to see God's people surround these communities with love an support.  May His name be made great!

  1. Hi, I just finished reading Radical a while back and it really gave me a lot to think about. I'll pray for you and your college group. It's such an important book that reminds us to keep focused on the Truth. Petra looks good too. :)
