What's On My Nightstand, November
As part of 5 Minutes for Books' monthly carnival, here's what I've been reading...
Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes
Sad, overly dramatic at times, I liked this book okay. I downloaded it for free (free!) from amazon. If you don't have a Kindle, you can get the Kindle app for virtually any electronic device and take advantage of their free downloads.
Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices by Mosab Hassan Yousef
Wow. Compelling memoir from the son of one of the founders of Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist organization. It's just like the subtitle: intrigue, power, betrayal. It's all there in a compelling and shocking story. Wow.
Women's Ministry in the Local Church by J. Ligon Duncan and Susan Hunt
Very good. The authors' esteem both for women and for the church and their ministry therein is evident. Solid, biblical foundation for what women's ministry ought to be about.
I'm not sure. I also downloaded (for free) Chris Fabry's novel Almost Heaven (though it's not free anymore) and Thomas Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd. I'd also like to read (based on a friend's recommendation) Wendell Berry's Jayber Crow.
In non fiction, I'd still like to read Holiness: Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots by J.C. Ryle as well as The Discipline of Grace: God's Role and Our Role in the Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges.
