Today I turned to Write Alm’s January prompts for some creative writing inspiration.
And wouldn’t you know it, the prompt was “currently reading.”
So here’s what’s on my night stand and am carrying around with me these days:
The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God by Timothy Keller with Kathy Keller
I’ve read two other books by Keller, The Prodigal God (which was one of those books I almost couldn’t stop highlighting) and The Reason for God: Belief in the Age of Skepticism. As always with Keller, I appreciate his intellectual prowess, Biblical exegesis, and broad cultural knowledge and examples. I love that Keller brings a high level of intellectualism to his writing while at the same time remaining simple, clear, and direct in his style. One thing I like about this book is it’s not some sort of how-to manual. It is much more broad in it’s scope. Instead, it is thought-provoking and vision casting (so far).
Morning Glory by Sara Jio
I was first introduced to Sarah Jio when I read The Violets of March. This remains my favorite novel by the author but have read everything else by her as well. Morning Glory is about a woman who’s lost her husband and child and is searching for a fresh start and rents a house boat in Seattle. There she uncovers clues to the mysterious past of a former owner of the boat.
James and the Giant Peach by Ronald Dahl
If you can believe it, I’ve never read a single Dahl book! This one I’m reading aloud to the kids.
And of course, I’m still listening to Harry Potter on audiobook.
You’re up next! What are you currently reading?
