Currently Reading . . .

         Published several weeks ago by Thomas Nelson Publishing, Dr. Carol Swain's "Be the People" is a timely analysis of the Judeo-Christian founding of America. By exploring America's covenantal conception and the present departure from the biblical vows forged during the nation's infancy, Dr. Swain presents a call to action - a call to reclaim America's faith and promise. 
Dr. Swain recognizes the crux of the issue is not simply the more-recent abdication of conservative policies, but the nationwide renouncement of God. A full review to come.

Sweet Serenity of Books - HWL

A boat, beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July . . .

          So begins one of my favorite poems memorializing summer (See last page of "Through the Looking Glass".) I am terribly fond of perusing literature -  re-reading my all-time favorites and discovering new literary treasures - during grand old summertime.

          To my great enjoyment, I recently fell upon (not literally) Associated with Thomas Nelson Publishers, offers free copies of new releases in exchange for blogger reviews. I'm a book enthusiast. Especially of ones that get delivered to your door with a $0 price tag. No shipping and handling. Yes. I'm a fan already. Bethany House Publishers also extends a similar offer. And so, I set up this blog to review these such books, and any other books that I just so happen to get my hands on (and most likely a bundle of my all-time favorites will make an appearance at some time or another).

. . . Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die.
