It is amazing how much you end up having to do when you didn’t do it for a week. My design jobs stacked up…my church work stacked up…my stacks stacked up.

So the blog gets some delays in its normal broadcasting which I hate doing.

so lets talk about some books ive read recently.

They Like Jesus But Not The Church– Dan Kimball – 3 out of 5 stars
Great book and challenging. It is another book in the vein of following Jesus and his actions and not being like judgmental problematic Christians. Changing how the outsiders see us. Only issue with the book I had was that it was exactly like UnChristian just without all the Barna stats. My recommendation is to pick one of the two and read it.

Blue Like Jazz – Donald Miller – 2 out of 5 stars
Ok I know I’m gonna be crucified for this one, but I just wasn’t really into it. Good book, but for me it’s really a book for people who are searching, confused or have walked away from the Christian faith. It was almost blog like, but not a very enjoyable literary read.

90 Minutes in Heaven – Don Piper – 4 out of 5 stars
This was a simple book and quite short, but it was a great one. It is just a great story of hope. Don wen through death, heaven and then hell on earth. It is amazing to read about his journey and his walk with Christ and how that all shaped him to be an amazing witness of God’s mercy and grace.
