About a year ago, I developed a unique passion for reading "make you think" books. The reason I say unique is because before this, I HATED to read. Now I love it. God has some great things to say through His Word, and through some wonderful authors God can be understood more clearly and I can't get enough!
I often struggle to get all the way through books. I'm not sure why. For instance, I am in the middle of several books right now: Spirit of the Rainforest, Bruchko, Lillith, Screwtape Letters, Mere Christianity, and finally Let the Nations Be Glad. I usually don't like to read novels, but the novels I'm reading now are interesting to read and have a substance too them, so I'm giving them a try.
So, the topic of my post: Harold Clousing, of APU Man Choir Directorial fame, gave us a book called The Shack by William P. Young as a Christmas gift to every guy in the choir. I started reading it two days ago. I don't often read the forwards in books because they are usually dull and take more than enough time to read, but I thought "Eh, why not." Hooked. Immediately. I can't wait to read this over break! I have only heard positive feedback from those who have read it. I will try and post what goes through my head while I'm reading this heralded (no pun intended) book.
I think that will be a good motivator. Yep =]
