Two Must-Reads

My mind is like a hamper full of clothes these days.

Right now, I have layers of “clothes” (thoughts) in my mind.  You can access one layer as soon as another has been taken away.  So, my posts in the coming weeks will be in order of the layers, the thoughts, that I’ve been thinking.  And my first order of business is to tell you about two books that you need to read.

I finished book number one a few weeks ago.  It’s called Wrestling With an Angel, written by Greg Lucas.  It’s the true story of one family’s journey with a disabled child.  This book will give you an awesome perspective on suffering, and point you to the cross amidst any trials you will face.  I realized after reading this book that looking for parallels between a trial in my life and the gospel is a practice that has been lost on me, and probably the church in general.  So, y’all need to read this.  It will encourage and convict you.

Here’s the Amazon link, so you can order it right now. 😀 Wrestling With an Angel

I finished book number two just yesterday.  It’s called Heaven is for Real, written by Todd Burpo.  The subtitle is “A little boy’s astounding story of his trip to heaven and back.”  The only thing I can tell you about this book is that I think it’s seriously legit.  Not only will this read make you long for heaven, but it will help you love Jesus more before you get there.

Here’s the Amazon link for that one: Heaven Is for Real

Seriously, friends… I couldn’t put either of these books down.  You won’t be disappointed if you read them this summer!

About Joe Eaton

I praise God that my standing before Him has nothing to do with who I am or what I've done; it is found solely in the perfect life that Christ lived in my place, and His which atoned for my sin. "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of God"..."There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
