Read it, couldn't put it down! Crazy Love by Francis Chan... "This book is written for those who want more Jesus. It is for those who are bored with what American Christianity offers... I hope reading this book will convince you...that by surrendering yourself to God's purposes, He will bring you the most pleasure in this life and the next." (quote from book)
I read this many years ago not knowing what to expect. I had always thought of James Patterson as a murder mystery writer. Imagine my surprise when I read this book. I think I'm going to go read it again right now . . .
This gripping tale explores ever-timely topics—violence-as-entertainment and rule-by-intimidation—and through Katniss holds out the possibility of change. —The Washington Post
Water for Elephants. I listened to this audiobook while I was in Costa Rica riding the bus through the rain forest. So when I think about it, watch the movie, or tell people about it, I feel like I'm in Costa Rica again. It's so weird, but that's what happens.
