Review: Current Reads
I want to share two of the books I am reading:
Inspired by Rachel Held Evans is the book I did not realize I needed until it took hold of my heart, mind, and soul. If you ever felt uncomfortable with some of the complex parts of scripture and wondered how they could be explained in light of God being a good, loving, and just deity, this might be helpful. The answers may not be easy, but at least this book enlightens and gives you a position of solidarity.
Lore by Alexandra Bracken follows the other mythological texts I seem to keep reading and shines brilliantly. This is a modern struggle between gods and humans in a race for survival and ascension. The writing is beautifully done, and the pace never lets one slip into boredom. I am enjoying it immensely.
I know Christianity and myth are not always embraced together, but I like a little lite with my seriousness. I am always in search of variety.
You might like one or both of these.
Blessings embrace you
Every day in all things, ways,
God be your love, peace.
