What I just have to share...
From Hebrews 4 in the Wycliffe Bible:
For the word of God is quick and speedy in working, and more able to pierce than any twain-edged sword, and stretches forth to the departing of the soul and of the spirit, and of the jointures and marrows, and deemer of thoughts and of intents and hearts. And no creatures is unvisible in the sight of God. For all things are naked and open to His eyes, to whom a word to us. Therefore we that have a great Bishop that pierced heavens, Jesus the Son of God, hold we the acknowledging of our hope. For we have not a bishop that may not have compassion on our infirmities, but was tempted by all things by likeness--without sin. Therefore go we with trust to the throne of His grace, that we get mercy and find grace in covenable help.
I'm reading Christianity in Crisis: 21rst Century by Hank Hanegraaff. I am loving it. So expect a review this week--if all goes well.
I'm also reading the Classic Bible Story Book by Kenneth N. Taylor. I've gotten through the Genesis stories so far. I don't know if I can finish that up this week or not. It's not that it's long. But I like taking my time with these small stories. Reading twenty in a row isn't really the point, the purpose of the book. They're meant to be read in small portions--for small attention spans. But soon.
In Christian fiction, I'm reading Heart of A Lion by Gilbert Morris. It's about Noah. A young teenaged Noah to be exact...at least so far. It's different than I expected. But not necessarily bad different. It hasn't got me wrapped around its finger yet. I'm actually making slow progress--a chapter or two a week for the past two weeks. But maybe I can give it some attention this week.
What do YOU do when a fiction book just isn't grabbing you? When you want to like it...when you want to want to read it? But you're just not feeling it? When you suspect that it's not the book's fault that is.
