Ah, Finals Week is coming to an end and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I always find it helpful to set goals for every “vacation” I get as a student to avoid laziness (I feel like I always lose a couple IQ points during breaks, anyone else get that? Is it just me?). Anyway, in preparation for the upcoming Spring Break, I plan on catching some much needed “R&R”—Reading and Refocusing.
Here are a couple of books I hope to get through this Spring Break (this might be a little ambitious):
(1) Jonathan Edwards: A Life by George Marsden (left)
I’ve actually wanted to read this book for quite a while now, but I haven’t had the time to do so. This will be my main read during Spring Break and it should be…it’s a whopping 640 pages!
(2) Why We Love the Church by Kevin DeYong and Ted Kluck (right)
Great authors and an interesting concept that is slowly being diluted by social modernity. I know I love my church, but it’s often hard to explain why to others without sounding like a car salesman. I’m hoping DeYoung and Kluck can help me with that. This book also received rave reviews from a variety of people. (224 pages)
Here’s a bonus book if I get to it, but one that I will eventually read through:
(3) A Praying Life by Paul E. Miller (left)
A bonus book for sure (I doubt I’ll be able to finish two in a week, much less three!). Picked up a copy from church and I’ve enjoyed as much as I’ve read thus far. I hope to become more intimate with the Lord and the time I spend with Him. I’ve also been trying to work on praying more, so this book is timely for me. (288 pages)
I also want to encourage all those who are not really doing anything this break to spend abundant time with the Lord! We need to refresh ourselves and draw closer to God! Let us not lose sight of what is important and worthwhile in this world. Happy Reading!
