The Organic God

The Organic God

On 8/18 The Art of Steering wrote: This is a new printing of a previously published book. In the author's words, it is 'designed to take you on a journey and to illuminate the beauty of God in your life'. Parts of Feinberg's writing are quite arresting and beautifully-conceived, especially the way that she puts her thoughts together ... Reviews: August 2013

Bread and Wine

Bread and Wine

On 5/13 The Art of Steering wrote: Part recipe book, part reflection on the embodiedness of life, this book is beautiful! Niequist 'love letter to life around the table' weaves mouthwatering descriptions of food with reflections on family and friendship. Though I had not read any of her work before and am not a passionate reader of ... Reviews: May 2013

Altar Ego

Altar Ego

On 4/14 The Art of Steering wrote: Though the world tells us to seek fame, accomplishments and success...though those around us label us as father, mother, husband, wife...though we ourselves count our identity as empty, depressed, or angry...these labels are not all there is to say. You are not, in fact, who you think you are. So says ... Reviews: April 2013

Heaven's Lessons

Heaven's Lessons

On 3/3 The Art of Steering wrote: Steve Sjogren died on the operating table when supposedly simple surgery went massively wrong. He had a near-death experience but then came back, to a world of pain and disability. His old ways of understanding God were no longer enough and so he embarked on a long process of trying to make sense of ... Reviews: March 2013

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky

On 1/31 The Art of Steering wrote: This is the fictionalised account of Dostoevsky's life through the eyes of a theologian. I really wanted this book to be good and I really persevered with it. But it was to no avail. I could not get into the writing or even work out where the book was going, crafted as it is largely in the form of ... Peter Leithart, Fyodor Dostoevsky

WHERE HAS OPRAH TAKEN US? International Edition

WHERE HAS OPRAH TAKEN US? International Edition

On 10/27 The Art of Steering wrote: In all honesty, I only selected this book for review from Thomas Nelson because I didn’t fancy the look of anything else on the list. Oprah, I figured, might at least turn out to be interesting and I needed a light read! Some of the other reviews I read were not always complimentary about this book ... Fascinating!

The Grace Effect

The Grace Effect

On 8/27 The Art of Steering wrote: This is the story of Taunton's family's adoption of a little girl from the Ukraine called Sasha. Yet it is not just a personal account; instead it is interwoven with an analysis of the arguments of the New Atheists for a society which denies God. Such refutation of atheistic thinking is Taunton's life ... Review: The Grace Effect

Going Deep

Going Deep

On 7/24 The Art of Steering wrote: I really like books by Gordon MacDonald, almost without fail. This one was no exception, tackling as it does a topic close to my heart. It recounts the story of a church which became serious about disciple-making, a church which decided to release its pastor (MacDonald) and his wife to a deliberate ... Inspiring and practical, if a little clunky in style

I Am a Follower

I Am a Follower

On 5/30 The Art of Steering wrote: Sweet's book, I Am a Follower, was one which I chose because of my interest in leadership. In an attempt to debunk the idea of leadership, Sweet hits on the idea of followership and, more specifically, 'first followership'. I'm just not sure of the point of this and am not convinced that there is an ... Reviews: May 2012

On 1/28 The Art of Steering wrote: I was quite pleased to discover Skye Jethani’s latest book, With, available for review at BookSneeze.com. It’s one of those which I had become aware of, wanted to read, but was probably never going to get round to buying. Having finished it, I can affirm that it was worth a read and is the kind ...

Heaven is for Real Deluxe Edition

Heaven is for Real Deluxe Edition

On 1/20 The Art of Steering wrote: This e-book was provided to me for free courtesy of the BookSneeze programme. I have to say that I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent. It’s the story of Burpo’s son’s visions of heaven in the context of a life-threatening episode of appendicitis ... Review: Heaven is for Real
