Too many different books. And far too many that blow my brain circuits and make me want to read a quick mystery or something as a restorative:
The Mind of the Maker by Dorothy Sayers. Still working on this one, still following the discussion at Ordo Amoris.
The Pilgrim's Guide: C.S. Lewis and the Art of Witness edited by David Mills. This would be going faster if I'd stop re-reading passages and stop trying to read half of it out loud to Philip when I think he would enjoy it.
These Last Days: A Christian View of History edited by Richard D. Phillips & Gabriel N.E.. Fluhrer. Borrowed from Pastor Dad. Quite interesting and I try to read a lot of this one to Philip too, even though he already told me he would read it when I finish. I just can't help it.
Clutch of Constables by Ngaio Marsh. Started this one as a break from the other heavy theological reading. Also because most of these Marsh mysteries have been loaned to me and I'd like to return them before I forget that they're not all mine.
And I still have a book mark inPacific Crucible: War at Sea in the Pacific, 1941-1942 but it should probably be listed under "What I'll read next" because it's getting pushed pretty far down in the stack.
• What did you recently finish reading?
Sticky Faith: Everyday Ideas to Build Lasting Faith in Your Kids by Dr. Kara Powell & Dr. Chap Clark
OK, but not great. Rather too dependent on a social gospel in parts. Nothing groundbreaking.
Killer Dolphin (also known as Death at the Dolphin) by Ngaio Marsh. Interesting, diverting mystery. (Although I would like to point out that all these Marsh mysteries set in theaters never even consider that the backstage crew could be guilty. Which seems odd, right?)
• What do you think you’ll read next?
The aforementioned Pacific Crucible or maybe
Freedom's Forge by Arthur Herman.
Or maybe another mystery will jump to the top of my stack...
What are you reading right now?
