Tamam, Berry Knudsen Stephanie Plum değil, ama sıkıcı, sık sık sıkışıyor, yakışıklı ve yakışıklı bir erkekle tanışıyor ve 3 küçük yaşlı kadını evlat ediniyor. Bu hızlı bir havadar okuma, kitap plaj çantamda Hawaii'ye almış olmalıydım.
a really good book
A gorgeous, poetic personal account of Black Elk's life, historical battles, personal connections to Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull, etc. I fell in love with his descriptions and dialogue. Some spots get a little long (his dream/vision sequences), but it's a lovely glimpse into the life of a Native American who lived on the brink of seeing his peoples' extinction.
One of the books that REALLY made me want to be a teacher. What a fool I was (I'm mostly kidding).
This is a book for Christians about simplifying the Christian life to three basic loves: love for God, love for other Christians, and love for those who are not Christians. Kreider and Seibert make their points mostly through stories and testimonies, letting real examples be lessons in a way that structured lists would fail. Their message is powerful and effective, and should be inspiring for any Christian. A reader should know that this book isn't written for those who don't believe in Jesus already - there isn't any effort put into, "Here's why you should believe that God loves you," except where that comes through stories aimed at something else. For someone who's already a Christian, though, this book is rich and full of honesty and love. The two authors don't identify themselves very often, and even though they have different backgrounds and work in different parts of the world now, most of the book is a nice harmony of voices. When it comes to personal stories, the authors will indicate, parenthetically, which one is telling the story, but mostly the book seems to be fully by both authors. One thing that I really appreciate about the book is its commitment to simplicity. The main text of the book has very few direct Scripture references or doctrinal statements. There isn't an in-depth discussion of predestination or the authorship of 2 Thessalonians. Instead, most of the book is about the mechanics, in both grand and intimate scale, depending on the example, of living a Christian life. There are certainly Scripture references and specific details, but most of these are saved for the appendices, and the main book flows with a joyful simplicity as the authors share their hearts like patriarchs at a Thanksgiving dinner table encouraging their family members. The book is positive and inspiring, and I think Christians will really enjoy it. (in the interest of fuller disclosure, I was a member of a church in the network led by Jimmy Seibert, and we have known each other for years. I love Jimmy and would never post a harsh review if I didn't like a book that he wrote. At the same time, I've been out of the network since I moved out of Boston five years ago, and I could simply have chosen not to review the book without fear of social awkwardness if I hadn't liked it. You can trust that I am sharing my actual opinions, even though I have a personal connection to the book.)
