Do you need to get away from the realities of life this summer? One way that I love to get away is to get lost in a great book. Jesus always taught through stories and parables. The great thing about Christian novels is you can be learning Christ-like principles while enjoying a great story.
After the coffee shop and bookstore open, I might be able to start ‘Martha’s book club’. Until then, I will just tell you about some great books…
One of my all-time favorites is Redeeming Love, based on the book of Hosea, by Francine Rivers. It’s a story about love and forgiveness; hurt and healing…it’s just an intense novel, I can’t even describe it. You just have to read it for yourself! It will easily keep you awake until 2:00 in the morning.
So, go read it, and then let me know what you think!
