Book Review: Celebration of Discipline

Celebration of Discipline by Richard J. Foster is an American protestant Christian classic. Maybe even for Catholics too, I don’t know. Published in 1978, it’s the type of book that one might receive as a graduation gift or one might acquire for a small group or something. My husband’s name is on the nameplate of…

Book Review: Knowing God

For the record, I would give this book 4.5 stars, but Goodreads makes me stick to one or the other, so… Also for the record, it remains difficult to rate certain books, because they might be important or edifying, even though literarily they might not rank at the top end. I have found myself in…

Book Review: The Purpose Driven Life

The Purpose Driven Life: What On Earth Am I Here For?, Expanded and Large Print Edition, by Rick Warren and published in 2002 by Zondervan. Note made in 2020: The term “evangelical” has been changing much, of late, so I doubt that I would now call myself “evangelical.” Please take any use of the term…
