The Inner Circle by T. C. Boyle
The Inner Circle

Leslie, April 29, 2007

Boyle creates such palpable vignettes, then weaves them all togther into a story that you actually want to read. The colors, smells, sights, and feelings are so vivid. Definitely an enjoyable and thought-provoking read.

This book truly has the power to educate, while offering engrossing stories as well. Whether you grew up "without a net" or not, there is definitely truth to be garnered from these writer's tales of their lives.

Mitford Years #1: At Home in Mitford by Jan Karon
Mitford Years #1: At Home in Mitford

Leslie, May 27, 2006

A humorous detailed look at the life of a minister in a small southern town. See into the personal life and ministry of a man that must deal with God and people on a daily 24/7 basis. You will meet many colorful and varied characters, and come to love each one and loathe a few troublemakers. Although this series deals with many weighty topics, it is bathed in a delightful uplifting humor that is rarely found in Christian fiction. A very few slang terms are used in this series, and maybe one or two inappropriate words for true "Christian" fiction, but it is easily dealt with. I have the entire set and could hardly wait as each book came on the market. Sadly the Mitford series is complete, but hey, now you can get them as a set or even used. (Look on the bright side) I would say this is currently my favorite series. I drank in each book and reread them too. If you start with At Home in Mitford you will be hooked.

Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life by Joanna Weaver
Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life

Leslie, May 27, 2006

I especially appreciated her insight into the lives of these two women of the Bible. Her honesty and helps for living for God without stressing about "keeping score" was very helpful. She acknowledges that all of us go through different stages in our Christian growth and service, and that none of us should compare ourselves to the lives of others. I learned many things about my own service. I was encouraged by her comments on Mary's devotion and boldness to take the time to really "hear and listen" to Jesus when it would have been much easier to "keep busy doing". Don't miss this great book that I literally stumbled across.
