Lucky us! Carolyn Arends has a new book out! Unfortunately, it's only available as an e-book right now.* Also, it is a collection of her Christianity Today Magazine columns -- all of which I have already read. But still! A new book by Carolyn! Of course, it's well worth getting. My favorite chapters are Chapter 2 -- Initiator: Come, Lord Jesus—oh, wait—he’s already here; Chapter 3 -- Merciful Victor: Why defeat at the hands of God is magnificent; Chapter 5 -- Benevolent Lawgiver: Why God’s law is good news; Chapter 13 -- Saying More Than We Can Say: The Arts; Chapter 24 -- Going Down Singing: The gift of mortality; and, especially, Chapter 25 -- Lessons from a Headless Snake: God’s coming victory. They are truly all good, though. Thought-provoking and encouraging and full of, um, fullness -- Spirit and Truth.
So, go already! Get it sent to your Kindle or Nook! Read! Enjoy! And come back and let's talk about it!
*I just cannot get used to these new-fangled reading devices. I bought her book for my Kindle and will happily re-read her columns on it, should I ever dig it out of my bedroom trunk and recharge it.
