This commentary on the Sermon on the Mount is a great read. Like everything by Swindoll it will force you to think through the Bible passage with new eyes and give you a lot to think about, reflect on and apply to your life.

Swindoll’s take on the Sermon on the Mount, he talks out against works and religion and focuses on loving God and others. Some real practical reminders about how we treat the poor and our Brothers and Sisters in Christ. One of his better books.

Another good book by Jodi Picoult. This time she writes about an Amish girl who is accused of neonaticide (killing her newborn). Like Vanishiing Acts by the same author, it explores legal and moral issues within the setting of an Amish community. I learned a lot about Amish beliefs and their ways (as did the lawyer who defends her). And again, as with Vanishing Acts, this book is thought provoking. In a world of black and white, Jodi Picoult looks at the grey areas of life.
