If I Could Ask God Anything

I blog for many reasons, but one reason is that it helps me focus. Odd perhaps, but it works for me. I've shared a lot of my spiritual journey here and when Thomas Nelson had this book available through their book review program, I jumped at the chance to read through this one. It's target audience is children, but I've found that parts of the Bible can be pretty difficult to understand and I keep a children's Bible on my bookshelf for those times.

This book was really neat - a lot of the answers were presented in a way that everyone can understand. Many were basic and simple while others took a while to read through. All in all, it was a nice break down and I think it would be useful for someone who enjoys teaching others about Jesus and Christianity. Should you rush out to get it? Probably not, but it may make a nice reference item to keep on the shelf.

I think my next book will be A Hole in the Gospel. I've been wanting to read it and it's finally out in paperback!

What are you reading???

I have to laugh about the "should you rush out and buy it?" comment... because had you not said that, I might have!!

Hole in the Gospel is on my list, too. I keep waiting to get it through paperbackswap, but I think it might be better if I just buy it.

What am I reading? Nothing at the moment, but Im' getting ready to read Raising Your Children with No Regrets by Catherine Hickem. Went to her "talk" a couple years ago and it was I'm going to read the book for some "refreshment" in terms of parenting!

Yes. I agree with Jill. I might have rushed out to read it.

Finally have a few minutes to log in and check on y'all and was hoping to see some news about your interview and job and all.

Praying still....
