Whatcha Reading? Wednesday

| | Comments (2)

Well, my Lenten resolution to read non-secular books is still continuing, and I'm ashamed to admit that it has slowed down my reading quite a bit. Blush.

I'm in the midst of two books, one fiction, one nonfiction. For fiction I'm reading Taylor Caldwell's Dear and Glorious Physician, which is about Luke. Not too far in, it's pretty good so far. I think of Caldwell's books as the "old fashioned" kind of book--with a sweep of years and places and characters. Luke is still a young boy now, but with a love of the "Unknown God" and a surety that someday he will know that God better.

Also sitting on the bedside table is a book by Scott Hahn, First Comes Love about love and home and family. Just started this last night after I got in from a quick trip to see my sisterfriend.

One idea I was quite struck by was this: In the creation story in Genesis, God creates and it is good. The first time something is not good is when Adam is alone. And then God creates Eve. Think of that. Surrounded by Paradise, walking in friendship with God, with appropriate work to do and animals surrounding him, it was not enough until there was a companion--a family.

That is something to think about.

How 'bout ya'll?


I picked up First Comes Love last year in a used book shop and it still awaits my attention. Looking forward to your review.


I'm still working my way through both Fulton Sheen's Life of Christ and St. Faustina's Divine Mercy in My Soul. =)

I might not pick up another novel until after Easter.
