Just stopped by Five Minute Friday to see what’s going on. Each week we gather at a prompt word and write for five minutes on the subject. I’ve really not had five minutes in the past couple of weeks but thought I’d check in and see if I could just jump in and start running again with the writers.
This week the message is about the value and power of Historical Fiction. So this week’s post is literacy related. I love HISTORY! I should have been a history teacher! And literature! Oh my goodness!
I will confess that as a young born again wife and mother I had to curtail the fiction. You know reading becomes reality and it wasn’t good for me. Plus I’d read until I couldn’t hold my eyes open. Everything stopped for reading. It’s still true but now I spend more time reading healthy hunks of Biblical meat from awesome authors when I do get a chance to read.
Still here are some of my favorite historical books including some I read as a young girl and teenager. Hope you find something you enjoy. Then I will post a couple of books I adore for my spiritual life just because…
God loves you and He’s for you! Read all about Him in the Word of God!
(p.s. there are more modern copies at any retail bookstore)
List of very encouraging books for believers:
Oh Beloved! Live in the Light of His Word, Rebekah Beene
The Power of Praying…, Stormie Omartian books on prayer
Oh Lord I Want to Know You, Kay Arthur
Francis Frangipane books, any of them
Finally, from the Book of Books “Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near.” Isaiah 55:6
