Book Log: December 2009

1. Francis Chan. The Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit. 208 pages. David C. Cook Press. This was a helpful book in encouraging me to trust and walk in step with the Holy Spirit. Chan takes several breaks in his book and tells the reader to spend time in God's Word or in prayer--important steps as we take in truth about God. For a fresh reminder of what God the Holy Spirit can do--read this book.

2. C.S. Lewis. The Magician's Nephew. 208 pages. HarperCollins Press. Alright, I cheated. I listened to the first two books of the Narnia series. This one is the sixth book in series, but chronologically is first. Two kids use magic rings to get to Narnia--and see how it all began.

3. C.S. Lewis. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. 176 pages. HarperCollins Press. The first book in the series. There are a number of great illustrations for our spiritual lives: the crucifixion of Jesus, the rebellion of the sinner, and the victory of Christ.


  1. "Please - Aslan,” said Lucy, “can anything be done to save Edmund?”
    “All shall be done,” said Aslan. “But it may be harder than you think.”
