Monday Memes

Mailbox Monday is hosted this month at Knitting and Sundries. It is the meme in which book bloggers share what books came in the mail, so stop by Knitting and Sundries and check out everyone's posts for the week.

The mailman only stopped at my house once this week, and he left a copy of
Christmas at Harrington'sChristmas at Harrington's, which is for a First Wildcard tour.

I did get one other new book this week, a memoir of an alumna of my university
Southern Fried Child In Home Seeker'S ParadiseSouthern Fried Child In Home Seeker'S Paradise  I heard Jimmie read from this book Saturday and it was hilarious.  I'll have a review soon.

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is hosted by Book Journey.  In it book bloggers tell you what they did last week and what they plan this week.

I spent Sunday catching up.  Click on titles for my posts.
I reviewed The Clinton Street Baking Company Cookbook,and made their chocolate chip cookies.
I made corn pudding and reviewed James Beard's American Cookery
I have a giveaway of The Family Dinner cookbook.
I reviewed Letters to Ethan.
I reviewed The Tapestry Shop.

My plans for this week:
I started this a long time ago and have been reading it bit by bit but I need to finish it off, and I'm determined to do so this week.

About the book:  Walking with God  allows us to read the entire story of the Bible in one captivating and inspirational book…

We all have a deep sense of the importance of the Bible. But many of us get lost when we actually dive into the Scriptures, and our time spent with the Bible can be more frustrating than fruitful. We are reading a collection of writings drafted by an ancient people, in an ancient culture. But Scripture is the Living Word of God, and it is meant just as much for us as for those who lived thousands of years ago.

In Walking with God, Dr. Tim Gray and Jeff Cavins unpack the central story woven throughout Scripture and present it in an easy-to-read, concise manner. Gray and Cavins take readers on a journey through the “narrative” books of the Bible—the ones that tell the story—and present a panoramic view of God’s glorious plan of salvation. Their expert commentary dives deep into the mysteries of Scripture, unlocking its riches and showing you how you how these inspired words are meant for you today.

Enter into the Scriptures with Walking with God. Witness the fascinating story of our faith unfold, and see how you, at this moment in your life, fit into God’s plan for all of humanity.

I also want to read the two new books I got this week, and then, attack Mount TBR.

  2. Walking With God sounds really interesting. I purchased a book a couple years ago called The Book Of God which is the Bible written in story format - HOWEVER it is so big it intimidates me and therefore sits unread.
