I'd need a different approach, I'm sure, if I relied on a steady stream of writing for my primary income source. (less)

The author often used beautiful phrasing and the book had a few powerful, emotional moments. I found it to be a generally well-paced read, but with too much unrealized potential. As usual, I had an easier time relating to the author's male characters ...more

booklady Have you ever heard the song with these words?

"Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours...
Yours are the hands with which he is to bless men now."

It's by John Michael Talbot and I've found where you can download it but I'm just too technologically ignorant to know how! The song, however, is beautiful!

God bless, booklady




Skylar Burris Thanks, Karen! I'm glad you are enjoying Ancient Paths.
