Three New Books!

My sweet family has given me three new books. I'm looking forward to reading them all. But where to find the time? And which order do I read them in?

Anyway, here they are:

Generous Justice by Tim Keller

The Rabbit and the Elephant by Tony & Felicity Dale and George Barna

From Eternity to Here by Frank Viola

Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? (I'm sure Alan has read at least two of them).

Bobby,

I'm looking forward to them - especially Viola's.

I read Viola's From Eternity To Here earlier this year. I read it in the series of books with Pagan Christianity, Reimagining Church and the one he wrote before all that on the New Testament.

Of all those books, this one is by far the one that stretches me most. It's as if all the physical and practical elements of the other books, this is the underpinning narrative behind everything.

It's not about agreeing with everything, but it is about igniting or reigniting a passion for what maybe on the heart of God.

Great read to be re-read as well.

Ur Man,

Thanks for the advice. I'm really anticipating what Viola has to say. I've heard a lot about it, and I'm wondering how much I agree with him.

God bless.

Yep. I've read two of them. I hope you share what you think of them all.
