I want to let you know that you can now get the Kindle version of my book, GO, on Amazon.com. If you read it, or have read it already and would like to post a review, that would be wonderfully helpful. I like the book a lot, but apparently it’s considered poor taste to review your own book. At least in a positive way. No matter your opinion, I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback!
I just finished a book by Timothy Keller, called King’s Cross. It’s subtitled “the story of the world in the life of Jesus,” and it’s essentially a running commentary of the book of Mark. I decided to buy it to enhance my reading through the gospels this summer, part of my plan to read through the gospels four times this year (I’m currently finishing up lap #3).
I am a fan of the way Keller communicates complicated concepts, bringing them down to a place that’s easily understood, even by myself. Like this idea that gave me pause as Keller comments on Mark 3:
The gospel does not say “the good are in and the bad are out,” nor “the open-minded are in and the judgmental are out.” The gospel says the humble are in and the proud are out. (King’s Cross p. 47)
Convicting. As if we need any help when we read the teachings of Jesus to be convicted. If you’re taking on a study of the gospels or Jesus, I’d add this book to your library.
