This is the first novel in a street-lit series headed by Snoop for Atria. “Books speak more to a female audience than does his music,” Schmidt says, “so these novels give him an opportunity to show, particularly his female fans, another side.”

I don't quite grasp "street-lit."

Romance novels seem to appeal more to women than men. Is that what 'street-lit' means? Is Snoop writing soft porn?

Oh, you mean like the stuff Dickens wrote? Or de Balzac?

Unleashing the Potential of the Smaller Church, edited by Shawn McMullen.  A collection of inspiring stories from the lives of smaller churches within the Restoration Movement.  As a preacher in a congregation of 125 I get frustrated with Willow Creek, SouthEast, and Saddleback seminars that seem to forget that a sub-hundred grand budget only goes so far.  This book, and its sequel, Releasing the Power of the Smaller Church, are both well worth reading.

I'm reading "Ronald Reagan in Private" by Jim Kuhn.    It's pretty interesting so far, and not a type of book I'd normally read, but I'm trying to move out of my comfort zone.

I don't mind fantasy fiction, but you have to provide for a possible willing suspension of disbelief.

"Barton Stone:A Spiritual Biography" by D. Newell Williams

Wow!  I really enjoyed this. Of course I like reading history so it was a fast read for me.  There were a few slow parts when he started discussing Stone's view on atonement, but that was the nature of the material. I have studied church history some years ago in college so I was a little familiar with the material. But I really came away with a greater appreciation of Barton Stone and his teachings and our history.

I would love to hear from anyone that also read the book or maybe a "what next" suggestion.

Tozer's on my "one of these days" list.  I looked through some of his stuff not long ago, and it seemed very good.  The kind of stuff you'd want to buy and keep around to come back to every once and awhile.

I've read more than a few books by Tozer... You won't regret putting him on your "have read" list, if and when you do.

Interesting. I have that book, and was actually thinking about picking it up after I'm finished with "The Pursuit of God"...

"Show me God" by john Herrin.... I think that is his name.   



This isn't his name but I forget again what it is ..   Something Herren?   Good book.  Science pointing to a creator.


Maybe it is fred hereen?



I do believe it is fred heeren

Finished "Night" by Elie Wiesel so I added "Call Of The Wild" by Jack London to my current list.

I've been going through and reading stuff I had to read during my elementary-high school years in school and don't remember any of it because I wasn't interested in school.  "Night" was the only book I remember reading the whole book because it was so interesting...we were assigned a chapter the first day of it and I read the whole thing.

So after "Call", I will read "White Fang" by Jack London and "The Diary of Anne Frank" and then I'll try to remember some other books I had to read because I honestly can't remember now...I wasn't interested in school, remember?
