LIBRARY NEWS   

JULY/AUGUST 2019

 

Hello fellow readers! Hope you will find

something during the next 2 months to

spend some worthwhile hours reading.

 

We have two non-fiction selections this

month that can be used as Bible Studies

if you so choose. The first selection

Seeing the Heart of Christ--How Jesus

Cares for Hurting People by Bill Crowder.

This author’s name will be familiar to

readers of the daily devotional, Our Daily

Bread, which our church has available on

the table outside the Sanctuary. Mr. Crowder

takes 12 encounters Jesus has with people

facing different hurting situations in life

and how they can speak into our lives today.

He brings some possible new perspectives

on each. These are followed by questions at

the end of the book if you wish to extend your

study.

 

Karen Kingsbury a very popular inspirational

storyteller has now started a series on The

Family of Jesus. In this first book she writes

on Joseph, Zechariar, Elizabeth, John the Baptist,

James and Mary. She has used scripture and has

filled in’ with historically and culturally correct

setting information to ‘flesh out’ what their lives

might have been like. The last quarter of the book

has daily application questions, group discussion

questions and homework questions to further your

study, if you so choose.

 

Our fiction selection this month is Shadow of the

Mountain--Exodus by Cliff Graham. The topic of

this historical fiction is Caleb and the author

presents him as a trained warrior. It takes place

as Caleb is fighting the Anakite giants in the Promise

Land to claim his inheritance. He recounts for his

nephew about the time of Moses and Aaron in Egypt

and the travel in the wilderness. The author is a

former military man and brings vivid descriptions to

his writing. It is a fast paced and well written.

 

Hope that one of these books or another will fill

your summer with knowledge, enjoyment, inspiration,

etc. Happy reading.
