Adventures in Good Reading
A collection of over 50 Christian romance fiction was recently donated to the library and is now available for loan. This fiction is a good alternative to the secular romance novels that are available elsewhere. While some may not like to read this type of book, the research done by the authors to provide background to the stories does help to enrich the reader’s appreciation of history. Also, reading this type of literature sometimes leads to other types of reading.
Some of the books include:
The displaced belle by Dooly
Peace be still by Fowler
In search of Serenity by Griffin
A shepherd’s song by Moore
Another notable collection that we carry is books by local authors from the Called and Ready Writers Guild, founded by Minister Mary Edwards and President Mrs. Wanda Burnside.
In addition, may we recommend a good biography. Reading about the lives of Christians from the past helps to strengthen our own walk with the Lord. As Hebrews 13:7 says, “Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith.” (NASV) Suggestion include:
John Newton: from disgrace to amazing grace by Jonathan Aitken
David Watson: a portrait by his friends edited by Edward England
Dietrich Bonhoeffer: pastor, martyr, prophet, spy by Erick Metaxas
