Found a few books at Half Price Books while looking for a copy of my own book, The Contemplative Mom. My search took me to the “Religion” section:The Contemplative MomThey had one copy, so I snatched it up. Since my book is out-of-print, it’s fairly scarce. People often ask to buy it from me, so it’s good to have a few on hand.Each New Day This is a daily devotional book by Corrie ten Boom. As you can see from the photo above of my stack, the one I found is an older, hardbound edition. The selections look to be very short and simple. For example, randomly opening to February 18:
When you bring God’s Word to others, you must maintain the horizontal and the vertical connection with both them and the Holy Spirit. Pray in your heart for the guidance, insight, and wisdom you need.I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which none of your adversaries will be able to withstand or contradict. (Luke 21:15 RSV)Lord, thank You for Your presence while we work. By ourselves we are too weak, but Your Spirit makes us able.
In His StepsI’d been looking for this book by Charles M. Sheldon (again, the edition I found is a hardbound edition), and the Belgian Wonder reached out for it because it matched the Corrie ten Boom book’s binding. He didn’t know I wanted In His Steps! Apparently this book, written 100 years ago, coined the phrase “What Would Jesus Do?”The Passion of Jesus ChristThis small book by John Piper looks to have a Good Friday/Easter theme, so I bought it to read over the next few days.So, what are you reading these days? Have you picked up any treasures?
