It’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but that’s mostly because I just haven’t felt the need to write… no real inspiration. No breakthroughs. And that continues. My Bible study has been a read-through of the Book of Matthew, and while I always find Bible study enlightening and interesting I haven’t had any new revelations. Besides regular Bible study I am currently reading The Biblical Basis for Modern Science by Henry M. Morris. I’m only about 70 pages into it, but so far it’s interesting. The beginning is more basic (in a general sense) and Biblical…. I’m looking forward to later chapters.
My non-fiction reading list includes (just to name a few):
Tortured for Christ by Richard Wurmbrand
The Imitation of Christ by Thomas A Kempis
2 multi-volume works by C.S. Lewis
Common Sense (and Other Writings) by Thomas Paine
Then there’s my fiction list:
The Bride Collector by Ted Dekker (reading this one now)
BoneMan’s Daughters by Ted Dekker
Obsessed by Ted Dekker
1984 by Geroge Orwell
Showdown by Ted Dekker
Saint by Ted Dekker
Sinner by Ted Dekker
Green by Ted Dekker
So, obviously that’s a LOT of Ted Dekker novels. That’s what happens when you discover an awesome author. 🙂 My fiction list is actually shorter than my non-fiction list. I also have The Pilgrim’s Progress on my list. It will be my first time reading that. And so that’s where I’m at now. Doing a lot of reading, which I love. If you love thriller or suspense novels, but prefer to read a novel that is clean and has some meaning and can still keep you on the edge of your seat…. read Ted Dekker. You will not be disappointed. I’ve already read seven of his novels and I’ve loved them all. My goal is to read everything he’s published. There are several other books on my non-fiction list (not listed above) that pertain to C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien and their writings (Narnia and Lord of the Rings specifically). I can’t wait to get to those.
