Today, I'm starting a new practice of resting or fasting from electronic media - email, Twitter, Facebook, blog-reading, all of it - on Sundays. Nothing but the quiet of good music and the restful joy of that strange old thing we called a book - ink printed on paper pages.
To whet your appetite, I am going to work on finishing two books so I can publish the long, long overdue book reviews later this week:
Girl Soldier is co-authored by my friend and hero, Faith McDonnell. Grace Akallo is the girl soldier of the title and Faith's co-author. You can purchase the book here
At The Heart of the Gospel is Christopher West's response to his time of reflection following the controversies surrounding his way of teaching the Theology of the Body. You can purchase it here
I'll see you sometime later this week, right now I've got a couple of good books to curl up with.
