Some book pics from Tim:
Reason For God
We studied this in our adult Sunday school class during Fall and it was a great class. I needed to read some chapters twice to understand the logic and philosophy used by both sides. Keller is very good at defending the faith and giving reasons to believe in God. He also challenges the facys and assumptions of atheists and doubters.
The Jesus Storybook Bible
My 5 year old twins love to sit in my lap and listen to me read this Bible to them. They also enjoy the many pictures. 21 OT and 23 NT stories are told at an age range between 4 and 7. “The Jesus Storybook Bible tells the story beneath all the stories in the Bible. It takes the whole Bible to tell the this Story. And at the center of the Story, there is a baby, the Child upon whom everything would depend. From Noah to Moses to King David, every story whispers his name. Jesus is like the missing piece in a puzzle-the piece that makes all the other pieces fit together. Beautifully written and illustrated, The Jesus Storybook Bible invites children to discover for themselves that Jesus is at the center of their story, too.” From the back cover of the book.
Lost in the Middle: Midlife and the Grace of God
Paul David Tripp
This is a great book that I read when I turned 40. Though the Bible never defines when midlife starts everyone can either prepare, live it, or look back on this time in their lives. Physical ailments can often lead us to spiritual breakthroughs and this book by Paul Tripp is excellent. I highly recommend it to all men and all pastors.
I Am Reminded
Not having grown up in the PCA I learned a lot about the people, history, and practices of the PCA by reading this book. It is half history of the PCA and half autobiography of Kennedy Smartt. He has fascinating stories to tell and it is a very easy and enjoyable read.
