When I read something that I think is significant I want to share it, but don’t always know how. I realize the internet is loaded with options for posting things, but I guess I’m old-school. I just make copies of articles, and make books available. The problem is they most often just sit on the shelf in my office. With that in mind, I want to let you know what’s waiting in my office for those who might be interested.
I found several articles in Touchstone that I thought might be of interest to those concerned about reparations, the history of slavery, and “Race, Religion & Reconciliation.” I also found a book by Voddie Baucham, Fault Lines, the social justice movement and evangelicalism’s looming catastrophe, that I found very insightful and frightening. I only have one copy of Voddie’s book, but I’ll be glad to loan it out.
The next book is one that Duane loaned to me, and I bought several copies to make available. Alive: How the Resurrection of Christ Changes Everything is the best defense of belief in the resurrection and how it changes our life that I’ve ever read. Just ask, and a copy will be yours to read…and to share.
The final book is the one we will be studying together on Sunday nights beginning September 19th. When I first read about Living Spiritually in the Material World I have to admit I was skeptical about it. The book cover refers to it as a “Christian self-help book” and it was written by a psychologist. But when I read it, I was blown away.
The author goes beyond psychological approaches to self-help, and focuses on the spiritual guidance that was given by the founders of America’s early colleges to their students. With forty chaplains of Yale recently electing an atheist to be their president, you’ll be amazed to hear, and benefit from, the biblical advice and exhortations that were given by college presidents of the past.
