Recommended by my daughter, Rose, the voice in this book reminds me of Odd Thomas in its sweetness and innocence. However, this is narrated by a 10 year old instead of a grown man. The [Read More...]

Saint Peter: Flawed, Forgiven and Faithful by Stephen J. Binz

Saint Peter

One of this book’s subtitles is “Walking with Peter from Galilee to Rome.” It’s the perfect description of this book. When I’ve read about Peter in scripture I usually tend to relate it to myself.

Dickens and the Sandwich

Sandwiches and Dickens I was reading Barnaby Rudge and was startled by seeing a sandwich mentioned: He was not without some refreshment during the long lonely hours; generally carrying in his pocket a sandwich of bread and meat, and a small flask of wine.

Book Review – Somewhither: A Tale of the Unwithering Realm

Reading Slump Solution: Hard-Boiled Detectives
