The other book I'm going through is actually a bible study called To Live is Christ by Beth Moore. It's a daily bible study going into the life of the Apostle Paul. Wow, I can't believe how much I've learned about Paul and his ministry in the last two months. A neat concept I learned the other night is that Paul supported himself from city to city with making tents (his profession was being a tentmaker). Missionaries now get through customs in many countries that don't allow missionaries by putting 'tentmaker' as their profession. That word in the Christian community means missionary. Very cool.
I also just finished reading Atonement by Ian Mcewan. The movie has gotten great reviews and I enjoy reading the book before seeing the movie. The author is an incredible writer using the best imagery I have ever read. At the same time an entire page describing something gets a little tedious. But, it is an amazing read and I can't wait to see the movie (when it comes to DVD).
I also recently finished Stardust by Neil Gaiman. After renting and watching the movie I found out that it was based from a book. I then checked it out of the library and quickly read it. It is very different from the movie which we loved but the book was still a fun read. Fantasies are usually enjoyable.
What's on your nightstand and what do you think of it so far?
