Do you have one of those friends who trades book recommendations with you? I usually meet with a friend for lunch once a week and invariably, our discussions end up in text messages afterward.
This past week, we talked about Francis Schaeffer's work, so my buddy texted me several book recommendations by Schaeffer:
He recommended that I start with “True Spirituality,” saying it’s Schaeffer’s foundational book. I’m planning to do just that.
Early in my Christian life, I read a couple of Schaeffer’s books: A Christian Manifesto, and Art and the Bible. But I really do need to read more from him, especially all these years later, so I was glad for the prompting. Truth Spirituality just moved to the top of my TBR pile.
I just started reading Packing Light: Thoughts on Living with Less Baggage by Allison Fallon. It’s too early to know if I’ll recommend it to my buddy. But I have to say, I love the notion of reading books in community, knowing that whatever we glean, we’ll be able to discuss them with each other.
