So I’ve been reading through Rachelle Gardner’s various blog postings. Mind you, it is currently 12:41 am, so my sense of humor could, in fact, be a bit skewed, but I am finding this particular quote hilarious: “So, writers, please get your own email address. And if you have your own, and your display name is something like “mommy of 3,” please change it to Jane Smith. Or, um, whatever your name actually is.”

The reason I have three email addressses:

1. Junk Mail

2. Friends/Family/Short Story Writing Publication/Mostly How I Get Myself in Trouble

3. School/Professional

Oh, and I ABSOLUTELY don’t believe in pseudonyms. If I write it, I own it. Mostly. ­čśë

You should read this book:

Read This Book!

So Gina Holmes new book, Crossing Oceans, is going to be released on May 1st. And you should buy it. Just do it. You know you want to!

Isn’t…?

“Paul recognizes the allure of principles, commands, and regulations as the means to self-improvement. But he dismisses these as powerless to bring about any real change in our lives… Paul dispels the myth that God is pleased with rule-based approaches to ‘perfecting’ ourselves. Paul would ask us the same thing today…: ‘Isn’t the presence of the resurrected Christ inside of you enough?'”

The Naked Gospel a la Andrew Farley. Love it!

Guest Blogging

Feel free to check out my guest blog at Chip MacGregor’s site: http://chipmacgregor.typepad.com/.

After Googling┬áChip’s name for an appropriate descriptor, I came up with “the Simon Cowell of the Christian publishing world.” Thank you, Jennifer Schuchmann. ­čśë

In all kindness, he’s wicked smart, he knows the Christian publishing business, and for some reason, he allowed me to post my ramblings on his blog. Maybe he’s just too excited about the Colts playing in the Super Bowl this Sunday to care about the real world!

Books Are Awesome!

Buy this book:

First, because Allan Shapiro is an amazing author. Second, because I am an amazing editor. And, I am not cocky at all.
Just saying.

So, I recently added a link to my friend’s blog (see sidebar) Ahab’s Quest, and I have to admit that I am more than slightly jealous. This could potentially lead to some competitive blogging in the near future.

Beware

Matt Bonzo’s Books

So, one of my professors from my undergraduate days at Cornerstone University, has 3 books out! Yay! And, here they are, in no particular order (in bold is information from him):
Wendell Berry and the Cultivation of Life (Brazos) with Michael Stevens. You can read recent reviews in Christianity Today and Relevant magazine.

Indwelling the Forsaken Other: Moltmann’s Trinitarian Ethics (Pickwick)

JUST OUT After Worldview (Dordt) edited with Michael Stevens. Chapters by Seerveld, Olthuis, Wolters, Naugle, Reppman.

While these books are available from the biggies (Amazon, Barnes and Noble), we recommend ordering from Byron Borger at Hearts and Minds bookstore.

(And, I would add, any local independent bookstore).
