sharing my love of books with you

Saturday, July 8, 2023

Good morning, my friends. It’s a bit gloomy here today, but that makes it all the better for reading and writing.

I made a nice cup of London Fog Latte, which I am enjoying alongside the book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible. My plan for next month’s Journeys for Christ devotionals is to write from Ecclesiastes. I must say, that is one of my favorite books of the Bible. It’s such a practical book, even though it does have a somewhat depressed air about it. I will share those here on the blog next month.

I’m not sure if you can see behind my tea the book Ben-Hur by Lew Wallace. I finished Ben-Hur as an audiobook a few weeks ago. I didn’t update the blog about it, but I highly recommend the book. Lew Wallace set out to disprove the story of Jesus Christ, but he found through his travels to Israel and his study of the Bible and other historical texts that Jesus was exactly who He said He was: the Son of God, Savior of the world. Ben-Hur is the fictional story of a young Jewish prince who met Jesus face to face and – like Wallace – came to believe that Jesus was the Son of God.

For me, today will be filled with writing. I hope yours is filled with good as well. Happy Reading!
