May has seemed like an awfully long month! Here’s what has been passing over my nightstand since last time:
The New American Standard Bible. No, not the whole Bible in a month. I like reading the Bible through, for various reasons, but on my own timetable as I feel led rather than in a year. I don’t remember when I started this time around, but I just finished reading through the NASB.
With the Word by Warren Wiersbe, again, not just since last month. I used it as my companion through the Bible this last time: it contains a few paragraphs of commentary on every chapter in the Bible. I have not reviewed it, but I quoted from it extensively when I was hosting The Week in Words.
Comforts From Romans: Celebrating the Gospel One Day at a Time by Elyse Fitzpatrick, reviewed here. Mixed emotions on this one.
The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness by Tim Keller, more of a booklet, really, at 46 pages. Very good.
My Heart Christ’s Home by Robert Boyd Munger, another small booklet, also good.
Introverts in the Church: Finding Our Place in an Extroverted Culture by Adam S. McHugh.
Just finished it Sunday, hope to have a review up in the next day or two. Review is up here. Mixed emotions with this one, too.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, audiobook. I enjoyed it much more than I did my first time reading the book a few years ago.
Shepherds Abiding, Jan Karon, audiobook.
Island of the Blue Dolphins, by Scott O’Dell, selected by Amy at Hope is the Word for Carrie’s Reading to Know Book Club for May. First I forgot about this, then the library didn’t have it, so I’ll be pushing to get this one done.
Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas.
The Hidden Art of Homemaking by Edith Schaeffer along with Cindy at Ordo Amoris who is hosting a read-along book club.
Those who know me well know that’s an awful lot of non-fiction for me! I’m aching to get back to stories!
Coming up next:
The English Standard Version of the Bible. I probably won’t mention this month to month.
The Merchant’s Daughter by Melanie Dickerson.
The Duet by Robert Elmer.
Light From Heaven by Jan Karon, last of the Mitford series, via audiobook.
