Book Excerpt

Chapter One

Noah looked like his father, and she hadn’t noticed it before.

But here in the backseat of a Dodge Caravan strewn with skateboarding magazines and CDs, there was time enough to see it in the young man whose long legs stretched from the seat beside her. To see the freckles dusting her grandson’s cheeks, the way his hair poked up like a hayfield and his eyes grabbed at everything.

Up front, Oliver asked Shane to adjust the radio, the static reminding Clara of the white noise she used to make with a vacuum or a fan to calm her newborns. The first one being Shane, her eldest, the one in the passenger seat turning now to laugh at his father, who wrinkled his long nose as Shane tried to find a classical station.

Book Review

If it’s not obvious already, I absolutely love blogs and social media. God has given us tremendous resources in our day to utilize great ways to reach more people with the Gospel and to stay connected with others in ways we never could have before.

As with anything that the Lord gives us, there’s always a temptation for consequences and for things to be used the wrong way. We have a tendency as sinful people to take things that God creates and to use them sinfully when that wasn’t His original intent. While we can stay connected to others, we might lose face-to-face personal relationships. While we can reach more people with the Gospel, we might be missing someone next door.

Book Review

Of the writing of books on discipleship there is no end.

There seems to be a neverending stream of books talking about new methods, new programs, or simply new concepts of discipleship. We are invited to return to the model of Jesus, or to advance into the postmodern world. Discipleship continues to be a hot topic in the church. Francis Chan, for his part, has a pretty simple idea in mind when he writes about discipleship.

For believers in Christ, this week is referred to as "Holy Week". Most would agree that the name is very appropriate for such a sacred time. It is a time to review the scriptures that chronicle the events that led up to the crucifixion of our Savior. It is
