Brrr, it was 30 degrees outside this morning. Winter has arrived in the Bay Area! Time to crank up the heater and make cocoa. I love giving books for gifts, maybe because I am also a bibliophile. In January we will (God willing) get cozy on the couch with Ellie the puppy and read The Prince’s Poison Cup by R.C. Sproul, Monks and Mystics (The Medieval Church) and Courage and Conviction (The Reformation Church) by the Withrow’s. We’ll also listen to The Story of the World, volume 2, The Middle Ages, by Susan Wise Bauer, on CD. The kids can also read Do Hard Things if they are done with their historical fiction novels.
I’m looking forward to reading Jesus the Evangelist, by Richard Phillips, that Michelle so graciously sent. On my “wish” list is Christless Christianity: The Alternative Gospel of the American Church, by Michael Horton. Although I am currently weary of apostacy and heresy, (Lord give me strength to keep contending and defending!) my husband says I should read The Shack in order to answer Evangelical friends who think it is a great Christian allegory.
