A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis
If you’ve hung around here at all you have probably seen this book. We finish it up this week in the Liturgy of Life Reading Group. Please join us.
Walking in Wonder by Elizabeth White
I just finished this little book written by an Orthodox Montessori teacher. Though her approach to the faith is definitely more Eastern there are some great ideas in this book of ways to prepare kids to grow in their faith even from a young age. Plus it is short and straightforward which makes for an easy read.
Infidel by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Ayaan Hirsi Ali is a controversial contemporary figure though I didn’t know it when I began this book. She is a Somalian refugee and a friend recommended I read it when she heard we meeting Somalians at the local shelter. This is Ali’s memoir and it is gripping, often violent and captivating. She walks through her own experiences growing up in Africa, as an asylum seeker and eventually as a Dutch politician focusing on the injustices she saw for women in Islamic communities.
Wheat Belly by William Davis MD
Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry
We read The Art of the Commonplace in our reading group earlier this year. This book is like that one only told in novel form. It is slow moving and sweet, a beautiful read. I wish I had time to sit down and read it cover to cover, but instead I’m savoring it in small pieces.
