Counter Culture, Blogging, and a Comfort Read ( August Reads 2015)
Once a month, I share what I have been reading and link up with Anne at the Modern Ms. Darcy and others on what they have read this month. Here are the short reviews of three books I am or have read this month.
1. Counter Culture by David Platt
Instead, the most offensive claim in Christianity is that God is the Creator, Owner, and Judge of every person on the planet. Every one of us stands before him guilty of sin, and the only way to be reconciled to him is through faith in Jesus, the crucified Savior and the risen King.
I have also been having my teen son read it as part of his summer reading list. It has made for some good discussions on our long car rides.
2. Delicious Blogging by Debi Stangeland
3. Taken by Dee Henderson
“Then let’s not be abstract. God didn’t stop men from hurting me. Does that fact make God not good? I concluded that God was suffering as I was, but He didn’t want to end free will or bring the world to judgement yet, so He permitted what happened. People hurt me, not God. He didn’t divinely rescue me from the world I live in, even though that was in His power. He simply walked each hour and day of it with me, and promised me that justice was coming.
What books have you read this month or are planning to read this fall?
