DECEMBER 2019

 

Our bookcart is filled with our Christmas

selections for this month. Two of our

highlighted books come from these

selections.

 

Our first is After Christmas How Christ’s

Birth Changed Everything by Jeremy

Royal Howard and Doug Powell. It has

7 short chapter that explain who Jesus

is and scripture to back the claims. Each

chapter concludes with questions.

 

Lost December by Richard Paul Evans

is one of our two fiction selections. This

is a modern version of Jesus’ parable of

The Prodigal Son. The son’s turning away

is at times hard to understand and read--

oh but the redemption, hope and love at

the end are worth it! This helps us to view

ourselves and others in a new light.

 

The second fiction selection is the first book

in a trilogy (we have all three) by Stephen

R. Lawhead, Paradise War. This is a time

travel series where our characters travel

back to earlier times in Scotland. In Paradise

War-- “the setting is a world like ours but

bolder and brighter a place of kings and

warriors, bards and battles, feats of glory

and honor.” The author does a wonderful

job of drawing us into this world and having

us rooting for his characters. So if adventure

sounds good to you--this is the book for you--

for youth and adults.

 

Advent--a time of waiting--of preparing our

hearts and lives to again receive Jesus in

new and deeper ways. Blessings to all and

Merry Christmas.

 

Karen Wambaugh, Librarian
