It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. I nearly froze taking the garbage out. And that means it is time to think about what books to buy for those who are readers. Here are some suggestions.
Book Recommendations for Those Thoughtfully Considering Christianity
Encounters with Jesus by Tim Keller – Highly readable and well reasoned.
Despite Doubt by Mike Wittmer – We don’t need to be afraid of our doubts. Mike Wittmer – – gifted as always – – shows how we can confidently embrace faith. (By the way, you ought to read Mike wondering if it isn’t a little over the top to give elementary kids flowers for singing “The Little Drummer Boy).”
Book Recommendations for Those Who Love to Study God’s Word
God’s Wisdom in Proverbs – I recommend this one all the time. See here.
A Book Recommendation for those (like me) Given to Introspection
The Freedom of Self-Forgetfulness by Tim Keller
Books for Those who Love a Good Mystery
Anything by Charles Todd. I read everything that Todd (a mother and son) write.
My Most Recent Book
Bound Together by Chris Brauns
I use Adobe Lightroom to both organize my pictures and for 99% of my edits. In addition to being a wonderful tool for organization, the below before and after pics make the case for using it to edit pictures.
Of course, when I do occasionally want to get rid of power lines or make major edits, Photoshop is the preferred method! Notice: Church with power lines and church without.
In terms of cameras – – and I know this gets a little pricey – – but you will be pleased with any of the following:
Nikon 7100 – I use the previous version of this camera.
Nikon D600 – If you get this camera for me for Christmas, then I will take a very nice picture of you.
