Words on Wednesday – Created Beings

I am still, ever so slowly, working my way through The Soul of Science: Christian Faith and Natural Philosophyby Nancy Pearcey and Charles Thaxton.

So very much of it goes right over my head. And then I read quotes like this one:
we are created beings
and I’m thankful that I haven’t given up on this book, even if I’m not understanding it all.

We are created beings.

Recently Finished

Despite reading a lot in the last week, the only book I actually finished was When Falcons Fall: A Sebastian St. Cyr Mystery. I think Harris has improved over the course of this series but this book wasn’t necessarily my favorite. There seemed to be an awful lot of “catching up” in the writing just in case someone who isn’t familiar with the series picked up this book. So for me, since I’ve read all the books in the series, there was a bit of impatience. (As in, “Yes, I know. You’ve told us that for eleven books now.”) That said, Devlin and Hero are a dynamic duo and I hope she keeps writing this books for a long time. (And then maybe we can have Simon’s adventures too, kind of like how Elizabeth Peters wrote about Ramses Emerson in the later books of the Amelia Peabody series.)

Recently Added

Heirs and Assignsis the first book in a new series. This was recommended to “people who love Downton Abbey”, which, no, I do not love Downton Abbey (although I maintain a nostalgia for most of the first 3 seasons) but I do love England and mysteries so…

Current Read Aloud

At bedtime we’re reading The Cricket in Times Square, which I have never read despite owning  it for years.

Our morning read aloud is The Children’s Homer: The Adventures of Odysseus and the Tale of Troy. I love the richness of the language in this.

We’ve also added Greek Mythsby Ann Turnbull to our morning read aloud routine, mostly because of the gorgeous illustrations and the fact that the sections are short. I think The Children’s Homer is going over my younger listeners’ heads a bit, so reading both makes for a more inclusive read aloud time.

(If you want to see more of what books we’re reading or wanting to read, make sure you’re following me on Instagram. I won’t say my pictures are anything special, but they do give you more of a glimpse into our everyday lives.)

Current Book to Review

Still nothing. I’m waiting for my sources to get some new stuff. I really prefer not to review a book if I suspect I won’t like it since to do so feels like a waste of a book, the publisher’s time, and my time.

Current Kindle Deals

A Confident Heart: How to Stop Doubting Yourself and Live in the Security of God’s Promisesby Renee Swope is $0.99 today.
