Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer by Patricia Wilson
Freedom from Worry: 28 Days of Prayer

N, May 21, 2013

I was given an advanced copy of this title by NetGalley. I have read the first week's readings and I so impressed with this book that I have already bought a copy for a friend who is going through some tough times.

This is one I will want to have on hand for times when worries try to take over. I tend to get into the hamster wheel of thoughts repeating themselves over and over again. This really had some very helpful ideas to break the cycle and focus on what really matters. Ms Wilson uses the Psalms to help us learn how to "let go and let God" This book helps to build faith and trust in the Almighty and bring peace to a worried soul.

Very well done! A fascinating premise really well fleshed out. Good for anyone who enjoyed Forgotten by Cat Patrick. I found this to be very captivating. I look forward to more by this author.

I'm delighted to have found this new author. She has great chops. Her earlier book When You Reach Me was a terrific read as well. Georges solution to bullying brought tears to my eyes. I also liked the way each character's secrets were revealed. This book is touching and funny and a great read. What more can you ask for? I'll be handing this out to all my friends and patrons.

I listened to the Tantor media audio edition of this book. I received it as a gift from the publisher. I enjoyed it a lot. Very good narrator. Very timely plot. Interesting look inside the lives of the rich and super rich. I enjoyed the characters. They were very full and felt very real. Good solid book. Wonderful audio presentation.

Spiritual Formation Bible (Encounter Series) by Nrsv Zondervan
Spiritual Formation Bible (Encounter Series)

N, August 25, 2012

This is truly the finest bible I have ever encountered. The margin notes and essays are really wonderful. They call me to examine myself and the scripture I am reading. I am drawn deeper in to the text and closer to the Divine.

In my Quaker meeting we call these kind of notes "queries". Questions without answers but that cause us to ponder more fully and explore more deeply our thoughts and feelings. It is sustaining and uplifting to meditate on these queries. They bring the bible alive.

With this bible I look forward to bible reading and what it will bring to my day and my life. I am saddened that it has fallen out of print. I do wish Zondervan would bring it back. I buy used copies whenever I see them to share with friends.

I have both the NIV translation as well as the NRSV. They are both terrific. I am hoping that it will be made available electronically so that I can carry it with me everywhere. I wish I could get this on my Kindle and iPad. It would be great to have it with me always.

I wish I knew how to contact Timothy K Jones to thank him for this fantastic resource.
