Just yesterday, I finished listening to the audible version of The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. After reading through some of the blogs and opinions on this book, I had no choice but to write my own. I’ll admit I listened to this during a time I’ve been particularly angry with God. I didn’t want to buy the book. I kept hovering my cursor over it, telling myself I didn’t want it. Truly, I did not want it. But, for some reason, I felt compelled. I got three books that day and I didn’t listen to this one first. If you haven’t read this book yet and don’t like spoilers then I would stop right here. Go read it or listen to it and then come back. Notice I didn’t say to go watch the movie. Never watch the movie first. Books rule, plain and simple. Again, I don’t want to ruin … click here to read the full article.

Embracing the Anachronisms ~ Guest post by Rachel Rossano “An anachronism is a chronological inconsistency in some arrangement, especially a juxtaposition of person(s), events, objects, or customs from different periods of time.” – Wikipedia I love history. Since I was a child, I would pore over tomes of paintings, accounts of long ago events, and maps. Listening to my father’s retellings of his research for his doctrinal thesis or discussing the reasons someone’s representation of the past was wrong, I would collect facts and ideas and store them for later. In my teenage years, I was completely fascinated with Henry the VIII of England and the whole dynasty he was trying to preserve by divorcing, beheading, and out living his wives. In my young adult years, it was World War II that drew my interest. My nose was always in a book. All that said, I bet you are surprised … click here to read the full article.

Congrats on your book! Guest post: by David A. Millican III I have never told this story before. There are many reasons I have kept it a secret but it has come to a point where I feel the need to share it. It was a hundred and two degrees with what felt like a thousand percent humidity as we tracked through the ancient forests. Our guide, a flat nosed Montagnard with a slight orange tinge to his hair hacked away at the overgrown forest in front of us. The cultural attaché from the government trailed behind us clucking … click here to read the full article.
