I’ve read some good books in the last few weeks (a couple of worthless ones as well).

The Appeal by John Grisham. This is Grisham’s latest novel and he once again relies heavily on the American judicial and political system. There’s enough truth in this work of fiction to, at the least, raise some eyebrows. I found the book difficult to put down and very disturbing. It’s a great plane or beach read.

Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado. I think I’ve read every book Max has published. This is one of his best. Giants is a study of the life of David with wonderful, practical life application. Max may be the king of word-smithing–unfortunately at times even to the point of distraction. Definitely recommend.

The Sky Isn’t Visible From Here by Felicia C. Sullivan. I picked this book up on a whim from the new release section at Borders. Sullivan’s book is her own life memoir. It was especially meaningful to me as I continue to delve further into understanding the damage that is done to so many children. Sullivan is an extremely skilled writer. Once again, I found this book hard to put down. It is not for the faint of heart.

Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby. Though this is really a workbook–it takes twelve weeks to complete–it is worthy of review. This was my second time to go through Experiencing God (the first time was about ten years ago). I was pleasantly surprised to find the same incredible depth of meaning as the first time I went through the study. Blackaby’s workbook is very self-probing and has the potential to bring about incredible life transformation.
