“What Are You Reading?” Wednesday

Awhile back, I read The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson; it was a wonderful book! So when I came across this intriguing title and realized it was written by the same author, I decided to pick it up. I’m so glad that I did! It is a great book and the Lord put it in my path at just the right time in my life.

“What if the life you really want, and the future God wants for you, is hiding right now in your biggest problem, your worst failure….your greatest fear?” This statement from the back of the book really caught my attention! What about you? If so, I highly recommend this book!

I’d love to hear what you’re reading this week…feel free to share!

Trusting His Plan,

Sandra

    It is great getting book recommendations from others. I am reading The Christian Atheist by Mark Groeschel. I deal with so many women in the prison who say they were believers or are now believers but their lives just aren’t changing. So this book caught my attention with a few excepts I read from it and its subtitle. Believing in God but Living as If He Doesn’t Exist! So many people “go” to church, but then live just as they have always done. I have struggled over the issue then of “are they saved or not?” I am finding the book so insightful.

    In a Pit with A Lion on a Snowy Day was his first book and it is excellent and I too found it after I had read Circle Maker. I am reading his latest book called The Grave Robber which is How Jesus Can Make Your Impossible Possible. I also recently finished a book called Plan B by Pete Wilson which is what do you do when God doesn’t show up the way you thought He would and it was so helpful and insightful that I went back and purchased 10 extra copies and handed them out to people who I thought might be helped by it. God’s joy and peace be with you.

      Thanks Rocky! I’ll have to check out Batterson’s latest book. I really like his writing style. I’ve also heard of Plan B…I think I may even have a copy of it on my bookshelf somewhere. I’ll have to see if I can find it…sounds like a great read!

    I just finished two of the three books that I was reading the last time you posted about what people are reading! Oh well, I am not reading like I used to now that I have Zachary. I have started Girl On A Train for my neighborhood book club, but I will have to tell you what I think about it once I get a little farther in.

    I just finished reading A Promise in Pieces by Emily T. Wierenga. It is from a series of books published by Abingdon Press; the series is called Quilts of Love…so each story is one about faith and some kind of quilt. It was an interesting story and somewhat light-weight reading. My mom gave it to me as an “escape book” … That was wise since in my read-through the Bible I am knee-deep in Job and 1Corinthians, which are not light-weight. Also, I just started a loaner from my brother called Becoming Odyssa, true story about a young woman who solo-hiked the Appalachian Trail.

      Sounds like a great series, Lynn! We do need those “escape books” every once in awhile, don’t we?? And, I’m always a sucker for true stories..might just have to check this one out. Thanks for sharing!
