We bought two books the other day: The Old Testament Explained and Applied by Gareth Crossley and God’s Big Picture: Tracing the Storyline of the Bible by Vaughan Roberts.
First, I ordered them Monday morning and they arrived Tuesday afternoon (for $5)… I LOVE WTS BOOKSTORE!
Second, the book by Crossley looks amazing. I’m 47 pages into it (it is aobut 850 long) and Crossley is great. I want to write about some of the stuff I’ve read so far, but I’ll save that for later. I will say, however, that the binding and printing of this books makes it worth every penny I paid. I will gladly pay $40+ for a book of this size when it is bound and printed well. Maybe I’ll write more about that later (for all the crapy publishers out there who publish huge books that won’t stay open, have small print, and dark paper). Anyway, I’m really looking forward to this. It is going to be the bulk of my study at work of the summer.
The book by Roberts was an impulse buy that is along the same theme as Crossley’s. Jenn is probably going to get to that one before me.
You might be saying to yourself, “but aren’t you both, according to the fancy ‘Currently Reading’ thingy, reading two books right now?” Well, yes… Jenn is reading one for a mom’s group she attends and is reading the other one during Asher’s bath time. Me, I’ll be reading Owen’s book for years and I will hopefully knock out Jesus and the commandments next week… so, there ya go…
