Define a Christian (111 new)

53 We are doing a series on our blog about what it means to be a Christian. Thanks for caring enough to discuss this and minister to others. Those of you emphasizing the need to study the Word and be clear about what it says are so right!

53 A lovely testimonial! "Review" sound so tawdry.

"I finished this book last night, and I'm very happy to be able to say that I enjoyed it through and through. Spending time with beloved characters is a treat, as is seeing them altogether, but the story works wonderfully even without the familiarity. Sophronia's tale is well worth the price of admission; as a free book, it shouldn't even be a question."

Still free today and tomorrow.
53 We have reader friends all over the world, so I am posting all the store links Amazon has for the Illustrated Dodge, Twist and Tobacconist, which is free today, tomorrow and Wednesday. Merry Christmas!


Our blog has an image gallery from the book and posts about the sequel, The 'Pprentices, the Puppet and the Pirate, and you can read a sneak preview of Book Two if you download the free book!

53 Thanks, Karen!
53 Yes, Karen. Sophronia Belle Lyon was my grandmother's name. Be sure to get the illustrated version when it's free tomorrow and Sunday! Thanks! I love the gears and Victorian stuff people make. The Vintage Angel facebook page has some really beautiful stuff I share on my page sometimes, Victorian and Steampunk.
53 Thank you, Karen!
53 Happy Thanksgiving. May you enjoy God's blessings and your family's love, and a free copy of Dodge November 22-24.

Could you explain a little more what you mean, Michael?

53 Getting back to the point of this discussion, I agree that it's easier to get "Christianity Lite" published than a strong message, and that the majority of what's coming out of Christian publishing is thin, and they wish it to be so.

53 The "Tales of Goldstone Wood" series by Anne Elisabeth Stengl. First one is called Heartless. A very moving allegory, pretty intense in spots. I haven't read the second in the series ad don't know if there are others.

53 Whole books in one sitting is excellent, if you can. It gives you perspective both on God's point of view in that book and the author who wrote it down.

53 Individual verses can be interpreted to support a cherished position, but that's why my husband and I have committed to reading the Bible through, usually 5 or 6 chapters a day, over and over, to see it as a whole, not as parts to be picked out and misused.

53 So true. I have lately been impressed by people who take the Bible apart, out of its context as a whole, and treat it like puzzle-pieces that can be jammed into their own "life-puzzle" if you please.

53 So many sincere and empathetic people are still pretty gross sinners. They wear their feelings-based philosophy like a badge of honor and if you don't ignore everything about them but those characteristics, you're a bigot. We must "accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative." :-(

53 I'm trying, although I don't drink coffee. Thanks for the encouragement. :-)
