What I'm Reading (February 2017)

Occasionally (once a month or every few weeks), I'll share what I'm reading. I usually have lots of books on the go, so I'll give you the highlights (and sometimes, the lowlights). Here's what's on my bookshelf.

The Insanity of God: A True Story of Faith Resurrected by Nik Ripken - This book is devastating and hopeful all at once. I've only just begun it (after hearing it highly recommended at CROSS) but am captivated already.

Newton on the Christian Life: To Live is Christ by Tony Reinke - There is only one book by Tony Reinke I have not read. This is it, but here I am happily rectifying that. I'm only a few chapters in, but already it may be my favorite book of his yet.

One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson - This is one of the most fun and vivid non-fiction books I have read in a long time. This is the summer of Charles Lindbergh, Babe Ruth, Al Capone, and a whole lot more. It's so engaging, it reads like a novel.

The Whole Christ: Legalism, Antinomianism, and Gospel Assurance - Why the Marrow Controversy Still Matters by Sinclair Ferguson - With a title like that, who wouldn't want to read it? Actually, this book was written for a popular level audience. Yes, it is at times complex and confusing, but overall joyfully readable and practically encouraging.

King Solomon's Mines by H. Rider Haggard - This novel is a bit of a slow start, but I'm excited to get into it. It's come to me highly recommended.

Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand - After I read Unbroken, I was hooked by Hillenbrand. This is the book she wrote on the famed racehorse, Seabiscuit, and the stories that surrounded him.

Feminine Threads: Women in the Tapestry of Church History by Diana Lynn Severance - Mom and I are reading this one and learning so much. I'd definitely recommend it!
