Reading is more apart of my life ever since retirement. Actually, it comes and goes with me. Lately, I have read several books, and I'm in a small group for Bible study that uses a small book as a guide for the study of Colossians. We just had our first meeting last Wednesday.
I was getting behind on reading all of John Grisham's books, so I purchased his most recent one, GRAY MOUNTAIN. As others have mentioned. He tells a good story in a compelling way that keeps one moving on to know what happens next. However, some of his books are much better than others.
I still think A TIME TO KILL, his first novel, was the best one I have read. SYCAMORE ROW is sort of like a sequel to that one and is very good.
Several books I've read have so much violence, etc., in them that I have picked and chosen what I can stand to read in them. This applies to UNBROKEN. I was particularly drawn to a certain chapter in this book that tells about Louis Zamperinis's conversion at a Billy Graham revival many years ago, which is described on the Graham website at Louis Zamperini’s Story of Survival and Redemption . This is where the title of this post comes from. Zamperini was also the Grand Marshal of 2015 Tournament of Roses Parade.
After I have finished the study of Colossians, I'll share my thoughts on the study guide book.
Here's a cheer for you readers out there.
GIVE ME A BOOK; LET ME READ -- READ, READ,READ!
