I Am a Follower

I Am a Follower

On 1/15 Prodigal Father wrote: I Am a Follower by Leonard SweetI received this book a few months ago, but didn't have time to read it beyond the first section. Over Christmas I treated myself to catching up. I am glad I did.It is interesting how we, with all sincerity, get tangled in the latest fad. One such is the cult of the ... A thought provoking read

Peace Be with You

Peace Be with You

On 9/30 Prodigal Father wrote: Peace Be With You by David Carlson is a multidimensional book. It is at the same time a reflection on how we react / deal with terrorism, an apology for monastic life, and a biographical look at how one person came to terms with 9/11 in his own life. At first blush, the main point of the book, forgiveness ... Peace Be With You by David Carlson: A Review

Max On Life

Max On Life

On 6/20 Prodigal Father wrote:  I have read a few books by Max Lucado. I enjoy his simple, straightforward and often humorous manner of writing. This book continues my enjoyment of Max' insights. It is a collection of his responses to letters he has received over time. This makes it easy to read a minute or two if you're pressed ... Max on Life

In Constant Prayer

In Constant Prayer

On 6/20 Prodigal Father wrote: When I first became aware of the book, I was attracted to what I thought it was going to be about. I had thought it would be an exhortation and advice on the concept of praying always, as St. Paul urges. I had hoped that it would inspire me to redouble my efforts and perhaps help me learn new ways ... In Constant Prayer, by Robert Benson

Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life

On 10/27 Prodigal Father wrote: It is rather easy to write a book trying to convince people to do good for others. Appeal to their sense of guilt, heap on heavy portions of Scripture quotes and show lots of heart wrenching photos of kids with distended bellies and sores. As an extra touch, add stories of saints and modern day heroes ... Outlive Your Life, a review

Cast of Characters

Cast of Characters

On 9/20 Prodigal Father wrote: I received Cast of Characters in July, but left it behind as I went on vacation. Then it got lost among the accumulations of summer. I am so sorry it did. This is a delightful, humorous, but very poignant look at some famous and not-so-famous people in the Bible. I wish I had read it earlier. Max Lucado ... Max Lucado’s Cast of Characters

Jesus Manifesto

Jesus Manifesto

On 6/16 Prodigal Father wrote: Jesus Manifesto is a short book and quick read, but it is full of reflections about the basis of our Christian faith. It challenges the reader to define what each of us actually believes in. Writing this, it seems obvious that what we should believe in is Jesus Christ. And yet, the authors show examples ...
