Why My Daughter is a Pharisee

I came to the realization that my daughter is a Pharisee about halfway through my vacation. Just from being at home more, I picked up on her pharisaical tendencies. The subtitle to this post could be: Why does Levi hate the Jesus Loves Me Song?

Book Review: The Prodigal God

Take that Winter Reading List. Down goes Prodigal God by Tim Keller. A very quick read by one of my favorite authors; he’s even one of my more consistent podcast listens.

Book Review: The Hole in our Holiness

I am crushing my Winter Reading list and just finished The Hole in our Holiness by Kevin DeYoung. It’s a smaller book but packs a big punch and left me wanting more instead of having me skim the last couple chapters because the author had lost my attention. Well done, Mr. DeYoung, well done.

Book Review: Deep and Wide

I got a chance to sit down and read Andy Stanley’s Deep and Wide the other week and wanted to get my review out there. For years the knock on Andy has been that his church, Northpoint, has been wide but not deep. They are great at reaching unchurched people but those of us on the outside have wondered if those people have been able to move forward through discipleship. Andy wrote this book to speak to that tension. I both appreciated and enjoyed his candor.
