Counterfeit Christianity by Ro...

<i>Counterfeit Christianity</i> by Roger E. Olson

  Roger Olson is a seminary professor in Central Texas who is also a prolific writer of books which take complicated theological or historical concepts and write them for use in adult Sunday School classes. I (Kristen) hold a degree from the seminary where Olson teaches, as well as have used his books in several classes. […]

Jesus, Pope Francis and a Protesta...

<i>Jesus, Pope Francis and a Protestant Walk Into a Bar</i> by Paul Rock and Bill Tames

  Y’all, I am not going to lie. I requested this from NetGalley without even clicking to find out more info. The title and the cover were enough to draw me completely in. I didn’t know who Paul Rock was (the Senior Pastor of Second Presbyterian in Kansas City, MO), nor did I know that […]

Body of Faith by Robert Fuller

<i>Body of Faith</i> by Robert Fuller

  As someone who believes strongly in researching intersections of society as much as possible, I was intrigued when I saw Fuller’s Body of Faith available for eBook rental from University of Chicago. Let me pause quickly and praise this service. I’m located outside of a university system at the moment and acquiring appropriate resources for […]

The Bollywood Bride by Sonali ...

<i>The Bollywood Bride</i> by Sonali Dev

Petals, I wanted to love this one so badly. I really did. As soon as it was sent to my precious little Kindle from NetGalley (thanks, publishers!) I stopped the book I was reading and dove into this one. I liked it. I really did. I just didn’t love it. Many of  things I loved about A […]

<i>The Queen’s Vow: A Novel of Isabella of Castile</i> by C.W. Gortner

  The Queen’s Vow is the latest book in my on-going project of trying to read as much as I can about women leaders throughout history. I am slowly realizing, as I move through adulthood, how little I know about the women who have gone before me that have shaped the world. I know more […]

And the Mountains Echoed by Kh...

<i>And the Mountains Echoed</i> by Khaled Hosseini

  And the Mountains Echoed is a complicated story that starts with a journey across Afghanistan and follows the ramifications of that journey over the following fifty-odd years. It’s a different kind of novel than I normally read – not just because I don’t normally indulge in Afghani fiction. I’m more used to straight narratives […]

Awake by Natasha Preston

<i>Awake</i> by Natasha Preston

  Awake is an odd book at first. You know that the new boy, Noah, who is interested in our girl Scarlett is a bit off. He’s a little too attentive, a little too perfect. My internal “stalker!” sensors were going off, until it’s revealed that Noah has actually been sent by someone to make Scarlett fall in love […]
