Books Read in 2010 (so far)
The Hunger Games – a young girl is sent to a fight to the death by her overbearing government but finds a way to bring courage and dignity to a terrifying and grotesque system.
Catching Fire (sequel to above) – rumbles of rebellion against the totalitarian state and hollow culture of the capitol city.
The Other Boleyn Girl – way too long, but dang the Tudors were messed up.
Created in God’s Image – We affirm man’s personhood and his creatureliness. The image of God in man is dynamic, not static (sanctification). Evil’s origin is a riddle.
The Sacred Marriage – Anecdotal, reflective, compelling. Marriage is to make us holier, not happier.
The Jesus Storybook Bible – “Why has no one ever told it like this before?”
God Our Teacher – How to account for the Holy Spirit in our teaching?
