Good wee article for anyone who does any regular bible teaching.
I enjoy reading Faye’s (http://fayehendry.wordpress.com/) book reviews and so here’s what’s currently on my bed-side table.
I Kill Giants - Joe Kelly: A heartfelt comic about a girl’s escape to her imaginary world. Amazon
Invisible - Paul Auster: His latest. Good story but some pretty grim sexual stuff I had to skip over. Amazon
Son Of Hamas - Mosab Hassan Yousef: Interesting autobiography by the son of a Hamas founder who worked for the Israelis before converting to Christianity. Well paced and neat to get a pesonal perspective but the poliical and religious analysis is really thin and lacks subtly. Amazon
Leaders Who Last - Dave Kraft: brilliant! Best Christian book I’ve read in ages. Thoughtful, practical and, personally speaking, very timely. A real kick up the bum to start looming after myself better. Would recommend to anyone.
