The Face of Water by Sarah Ruden

I really enjoyed her Paul Among the People, but this one seemed a little phoned in. There were some good insights (and some things I object to), but mostly I felt like I was reading her translation notebooks.

Primal Screams by Mary Eberstadt

This was a very good book, of the kind that labors to get educated people to come to grips with the obvious. In this case, it is that the sexual revolution laid the foundation for the insanity of identity politics.

Preaching as Reminding by Jeffrey D. Arthurs
Rate this book
Clear rating
This was quite a good and stimulating book, which contained a lot of useful information. It was marred in a few places with references to women preachers, which is kind of like finding a garden slug in a really great salad. But still, I profited.

“Education is the process of selling someone on books. ”
Douglas Wilson

“God gave us minds to think with and hearts to thank with. Instead we use our hearts to think about the world as we would like it to have been, and we use our minds to come up with rationalizations for our ingratitude. We are a murmuring, discontented, unhappy, ungrateful people. And because we think we want salvation from our discontents...”

Will Is there an error with your page? It says you've been reading those 3 books in your 'Currently Reading' section since 2009.


Margaret Chind Thanks! I've read several of your titles and plan to continue on into Omnibus. I used it while working as a long term substitute at a Classical Christian School and now nothing else with suit!
