Currently Reading 10-4-09

This week has been a semi-productive reading week for me. I've finished a couple of books and still working on another.

The books for the week are:

Growing up in Grace by Murray G. Brett. I highly recommend this book. While reading I could help but tell myself...if you can't say amen, say ouch. Said a lot of amens, with an ouch!

This short book looks at the Christian life and the process of sanctification in a believers life. The challenge of this book as stated by Geoff Thomas in the foreward is this :
"This book addresses our consciences about the character ot our Christian way. Is there credible godliness? Is there a deepening, growing relationship with our Lord? Is the loce of Jesus Christ constraining our behavior - love so amazing, so divine demanding our souls, our lives, and our all - and are we giving the Lord affectionate obedience in return?"
Amazing Grace in the Life of William Wilberforce by John Piper. This is a short biography of the evangelical member of Parliament who strove nearly his entire life to abolish slave trade and slavery in England

Girl Talk: Mother-Daughter Conversations on Biblical Womanhood by Carolyn Mahaney & Nicole Mahaney Whitacre.

These two ladies have written a book for both mothers and daughter on the issue of what it means to become a godly woman. The look at the mother/daughter bond and then in short chapters give many examples of godly living. Encouraging all the way the daughters to learn from their mothers, obey them and follow their example.
