Discipleship Essentials by Greg Ogden

If I had one bone to pick with this book it would be word choice, especially in regards to some of the questions. Within the group I worked on this book with, there was often much confusion about what the questions were really asking as some of the p ...more

Well, this was an adventure. Having never seen the movie, and only knowing in the vaguest sense what to expect, this was, at times, quite the ordeal and also quite the happy struggle. Scarlett is, of course, insufferable, and Rhett isn't much better. ...more

This book is just about as funny, inappropriate, touching, vulgar, and honest as I think any fan of Poehler would expect it to be. There were times when it felt a little all over the place, but for me that made every new chapter an exciting surprise ...more

I don't think fans of other books by Liss will be disappointed by this one. While Benjamin Weaver, the protagonist in other works by Liss, appears in this one as well, the appearance is incredibly brief, so don't get your hopes up. But Sebastian Foxx ...more

Excellent read. Short and to the point, with examples of everyday people who have been faithful to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spriti.

Books about road trips are usually either a fun adventure, or incredibly tedious and painful. There is rarely an in-between. Thankfully. This book leans way more towards being a fun adventure, if a little trite and unbelievable at certain points. And ...more

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami
Rate this book
Clear rating
It isn't that this book is poorly written, because it isn't. I think this book has the same kind or prose and style that other books I have read by Murakami contain. If anything, the reason I give this book only two stars is because it is boring. Not ...more

Certainly more engaging, and more interesting, than the second one. He Joshua has ditched his wife, Sally has be reunited with her father, albeit begrudgingly, and Lobsang is still Lobsang. As humans continue to search the Long Earth and make more di ...more

Victor Hugo
“So long as there shall exist, by reason of law and custom, a social condemnation which, in the midst of civilization, artificially creates a hell on earth, and complicates with human fatality a destiny that is divine; so long as the three problems of the century - the degradation of man by the exploitation of his labour, the ruin of women by starvation and the atrophy of childhood by physical and spiritual night are not solved; so long as, in certain regions, social asphyxia shall be possible; in other words and from a still broader point of view, so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, there should be a need for books such as this.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Zora Neale Hurston
“It is so easy to be hopeful in the daytime when you can see the things you wish on. But it was night, it stayed night. Night was striding across nothingness with the whole round world in his hands . . . They sat in company with the others in other shanties, their eyes straining against cruel walls and their souls asking if He meant to measure their puny might against His. They seemed to be staring at the dark, but their eyes were watching God.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

Steve Martin
“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”
Steve Martin

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom you will serve, wether the Gods of your fathers who were on the other side of the flood, or the Gods of the ammorites in whos land you dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version
