Book Review: Uncommon Ground ed. by Timothy Keller & John Inazu

Uncommon Ground - Timothy Keller & John Inazu (Thomas Nelson, 2020) Timothy Keller is probably my favourite living Christian theologian. I greatly appreciate his balanced and Biblical perspective on life in North America in the 21st century. So I was intrigued to learn about this latest book Uncommon Ground, a collection of essays he edited… Continue reading Book Review: Uncommon Ground ed. by Timothy Keller & John Inazu

Book Review: Jesus the King by Timothy Keller

Jesus the King - Timothy Keller (Penguin Books, 2016) Timothy Keller is my favourite contemporary Christian writer. His exploration of the life of Jesus doesn't disappoint and even though it seems simple, Keller does an excellent job of looking at the story from multiple angles. Taking the Gospel of Mark, Keller examines who Jesus was.… Continue reading Book Review: Jesus the King by Timothy Keller

Book Review: Reflections on the Psalms by C.S. Lewis

I started (an attempt at least) to read a Psalm before bed every night in the fall. So it seemed like the perfect time to read this lesser known work of C.S. Lewis. In typical, self-deprecating Lewis fashion, he begins by explaining why he's not really qualified but here are some of his thoughts anyway.… Continue reading Book Review: Reflections on the Psalms by C.S. Lewis

Book Review: A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis

I read a review of A Grief Observed recently that suggested this is a book read primarily by the bereaved and I think that's a pretty fair assessment. This is a book read by those who have experienced loss and who are struggling. I've read it once before, more than a decade ago, but it… Continue reading Book Review: A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis

Book Review: A Tale of Three Kings by Gene Edwards

This is a unique little book in that it isn't quite a Biblical lesson, it isn't quite a story. It's a retelling, of sorts, of the stories of Saul, David, and Absalom, particularly as relates to David's connections with each. Saul was the first king of Israel, chosen by God when the people demanded they… Continue reading Book Review: A Tale of Three Kings by Gene Edwards

Book Review: Letters to Malcolm by C.S. Lewis

While I didn't find this to be Lewis' most compelling or convicting book, I think there's still a lot of good stuff here. It's no secret I'm a major C.S. Lewis fan. As well as enjoying his novels, he's one of my favourite Christian thinkers and he's had a major influence on my faith. In… Continue reading Book Review: Letters to Malcolm by C.S. Lewis

Book Review: Every Good Endeavor by Timothy Keller

It's kind of an odd choice to read a book about work at this stage of my life. I'm a stay-at-home parent and I love it. I feel a lot of value in what I do and so I try to do it to the best of my ability. Which is really what lies at… Continue reading Book Review: Every Good Endeavor by Timothy Keller

Book Review: What’s So Amazing About Grace? by Philip Yancey

Grace is a small word with a big meaning. It deserves to have an entire book devoted to the subject (or multiple books) and Yancey is an excellent choice to tackle the subject. He delves deeply into grace here. What is it? What does the Bible say about it? Why is it important? And what… Continue reading Book Review: What’s So Amazing About Grace? by Philip Yancey

Book Review – A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans

This is a book I've been wanting to read for a long time and it did not disappoint. I was familiar with Rachel Held Evans' writing through her blog - mostly posts circulated by friends. And while I've never followed it religiously (pun!) I've generally appreciated what I've read from Evans. A Year of Biblical… Continue reading Book Review – A Year of Biblical Womanhood by Rachel Held Evans

Mid-Week Snapshots

Life is busy and full and blessed and hard. Here's a taste of it for me this week. Foggy days on the Coast. Many in a row now. Some afternoons the sun comes out and the fog burns away but it's been lingering for a while now. Sunday evening. Peter went fishing in our front… Continue reading Mid-Week Snapshots
