Book Love

Just a few we are enjoying...

The Church History ABCs: Augustine and 25 Other Heroes of the Faith. Church history in nice sized bites.

Of course, this is the most important page in our house! My husband is wrapping up his PhD on the Covenant Theology of Zacharias Ursinus. Ursinus feels a little like a part of the family now. : )

The back pages give a bit more biographical information.

For our first composer study of the year we are reading this book. And loving it! Zeezok has several more titles in this Great Musicians series. Brahms is next for us.

During lunch, I have been reading Lois Burdett's A Midsummer Night's Dream while they eat. They are a captive audience and it cuts down on the silliness at the table. All three would beg me for just one more page. This series is just a lot of fun!

And for a good cuddle-up-before-bed book Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge is too sweet to miss. This little guy with a big heart and four names lives next door to an old peoples' home and adores the residents. Especially close to his heart is the woman who also has four names and has lost her memory. So, he sets off to find some for her.

It's out of print... we picked it up at the library.


  1. I've looked at the Church History ABC's and that is really a great book! These others you have listed look really good, too. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I have so many positive memories of studying church history growing up. This book looks fabulous and a great first introduction!!! It is on my wishlist now!

    Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. Thank you for sharing these books, the musician/composer series looks interesting.
    Love the pics of your kids. They all are adorable in their own way.
