:gagaI am reading Nelson Demille's The Lion's Game. I love his writing- action packed, witty, and fast paced. It is also racey, and has curse words in it- but as my 86 year old mother says that also reads his book- I just skip over those parts and words.

I recently read "Reedeming Love" by Francine Rivers. I also read the book about Tamar in her 5 volume novella set....I've just started the one on Rahab and have Mary and Bathseba waiting in the wings...OH, and in the interim, I read The Shofar Blew by the same author.

I'm trying to read, Mortification of the flesh, by John Owen, but can't quite get into it.

He's a tough read. Try his 'Death of Death".

Just Recently finished "A Christianity Worth Believing" by Doug Pagitt, which I enjoyed very much.

I would say the best books I read thus far this year, were "Letters from a Skeptic" and "Is God to Blame?" both by Gregory A. Boyd

They really helped me gain a new focus on spiritual matters.
