Books that Inform

posted by Ruth Graham

A book that recently came my way is Indivisible by James Robison and Jay W. Richards. It is a good read. The have “put the  hay down where the cows can get it”. With all the many voices clamoring to be heard theirs is a clarion call to understand our roots and look to the way the Founding Fathers set our government up. It has been very helpful to me as I listen to all the pundits and talking heads. James and Jay articulate the Christian worldview that is so necessary in order to discern what is taking place these days.

Whether you are a Republican or Democrat, we need to understand the times. This is a pivotal year in the life of our country and I, for one, am very concerned. We can no longer sit on the sidelines and be apathetic. It is time to speak up.

I urge you to run, not walk, to your bookstore and get a copy of Indivisible.

In the same vein, it was helpful to read Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxes to understand the times that lead up to the rise of Adolf Hitler. Our political life cannot be separated from our spiritual life. Dietrich Bonhoeffer lost his life because He was willing to take a stand against the evil of his day. We must do likewise.

    I strongly agree with your view that we should stand up for what we think is just and speak up. Thank you for sharing Indivisible, I will definitely check it out.

Easter or Christmas?
How many of you have heard it said, "Easter is them most important date on the Church calendar"? I know I have. But it bothers me. How can we make a value judgment? You can't have Easter without Christmas. And Christmas would be meaningless without Easter. Oh, we could argue that Jesus was a good

Skipping Spring!
We had 5" of snow last Sunday and this Sunday it was 60+ degrees. It's like having whiplash! Last year we had a very early Spring...this year it is very late. Soon it will be 85 degrees - it seems we go from winter to summer, skipping Spring. And it amazes me that while there is thick snow coveri

When You Can't Sleep
I woke up early this morning. Too early. Too early to get up but too late to go back to sleep. So I just lay in bed thinking....then I began to fret - worry - about what all I needed to do and the fact I didn't think I had gotten enough sleep. I am sure you know the feeling! Frustrating. Maddening.

A Worship-worthy God
I am reading a marvelous book - it is slow going because it is so rich and needs my full attention: The Divine Conspiracy by Dallas Willard (HarperSanFrancisco, 1998). In it he quotes Adam Clarke's statement about God: "the eternal, independent, and self-existent Being; the Being whose purposes
