The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (Riverhead) For people who enjoy: High-impact thrillers....Why it's worth the read: When Rachel sees something she cannot unsee on her train commute, she gets entangled in a suspenseful mystery involving a beautiful couple and their secrets. It's easy to see why this page-turner is being compared to both Gone Girl and Hitchcock's Rear Window.
Most of us say we’re followers of Jesus- but have you considered that you may be nothing more than a fan? In the book Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus by teaching pastor Kyle Idleman, the issue of fan vs follower is discussed in detail. Idleman uses the analogy of a sports fan or someone who idols a celebrity and then challenges us to look at our personal relationship with Jesus.
