Books

I have been reading some pretty interesting books of late so I thought I would share some of them with you.

How Sweet the Sound.

This was a really good book by Meredith Resce. It is an Allegory of Jesus. It is set in a made up place which has a country with a king and an island that is under the control of the king but is many weeks journey from the country. The island is taken over by the enemy of the king and the king loses contact with the island. I recognised a lot of similarities with stuff from the Bible. It's a good book and well worth reading (although I don't necessarily agree with everything in it).

the organic God.

This book is by Margaret Feinberg. It is about having a proper relationship with God, which is free from additives and pollutants. Encouraging us to discover God in a refreshing way. It is a new perspective on how to have a relationship with God. Another book worth reading.

The Reluctant Journey of David Connors.

This is a book by Don Locke. It is about a man who is separated from his wife, and his life is falling apart. He is about to end his life when he finds a carpet bag, which magically gives gifts for people that need them. He meets a lady named Maggie and the bag takes the two of them on a journey, where they discover something from their past which they need to let go of to move on with their lives. This is a really powerful book which i would recommend to anyone to read.

So glad that you enjoyed the Organic God.

My husband and I are looking forward to spending some time in Australia in the future since we've wanted to go there for years.

Blessings,
Margaret

All sound like wonderful reads, but I am particulary interested in 'The Reluctant Journey of David Connors'.
