The Broken Way by Ann Voskamp
Rate this book

I will let others rate this book, because I just can't. No one can give so many stars to a raw and honest conversation in which a friend's soul is exposed in such a vulnerable way. Ann is my friend and this book felt more like a letter in which she ...more

Packer does a great job in explaining how the Puritans viewed life, and how they lived it. This is a must read for those who love the Puritans and want to imitate (and we all should!).

Letters to Malcolm by C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis is always a good read. This is not a book, however, I would recommend to someone who wants to grow in his prayer life; there are other books that accomplish that far better.

Marilynne Robinson
“All bread is the bread of heaven, her father used to say. It expresses the will of God to sustain us in this flesh, in this life. Weary or bitter or bewildered as we may be, God is faithful. He lets us wander so we will know what it means to come home.”
Marilynne Robinson, Home

Jorge Luis Borges
“Don't talk unless you can improve the silence.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Bryan Chapell
“The reality of the ordinary progress of Christian understanding should not escape our notice: early believers "know no answers"; immature believers "know all the answers"; and mature believers "know the limits of our answers.”
Bryan Chapell, Ephesians

Flannery O'Connor
“The mind serves best when it's anchored in the Word of God. There is no danger then of becoming an intellectual without integrity...”
Flannery O'Connor, The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor

Flannery O'Connor
“One of the awful things about writing when you are a Christian is that for you the ultimate reality is the Incarnation, the present reality is the Incarnation, and nobody believes in the Incarnation; that is, nobody in your audience. My audience are the people who think God is dead. At least these are the people I am conscious of writing for.”
Flannery O'Connor, The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor
