Thoughts on Black by Ted Dekker

Hello book friends! You haven’t seen me in a while! I’m not going to apologize, because these last weeks have been full, happy, lovely ones for me with family—a birthday party, time with my nieces, a rabbit show (really!), ordering pizza, encouraging sermons from my Pastor, joyful choir practices, and sitting on the front step...

Full Review, In the Field of Grace

I really had no intention of reading another Tessa Afshar book so soon! Back in January I reviewed Land of Silence; besides that, I have an ever-growing pile of works by unknown (to me) authors begging to be given a little time. But In the Field of Grace popped up in the audio book section... Continue Reading →

It’s Monday…

The photo I wish I took Reality As much as I may... Continue Reading →

Full Review, Land of Silence

Close your eyes for a moment... (not too long, or you won't be able to read this post!) You're me. You're at work at the library. The automated materials handler (a.k.a. the book sorting machine) is humming and spitting books into different bins behind you; someone's mom is reading aloud in the children's area; coworkers...

The One I Really Want to Love

Science fiction. Final frontiers, colorful characters, thrilling and imaginative challenges to overcome... I love it. But where's the Christian Science Fiction? I realize it's more difficult to write because so many of the common constructs of science fiction do not fit within a Biblical worldview, but it can be done. As a teen, for example,...
