There’s a book for that…

In an effort to 1) relieve the readers of this blog from too many book reviews, and 2) make the book reviews more helpful, we are going to be posting them in a little different format.

Our goal is to provide the readers with the title and author of a book, a one sentence (or maybe more!) summary, who we think would benefit from the book, and a link to our full review on (just click on the author and title).

If the summary and recommendations peak your interest, click the link and read the full review. If the full review is helpful, please let us know by clicking on the button that looks like this:

This is helpful for us because it moves our reviews higher on the product. If our review isn’t helpful to you…well, never mind.

So, with that introduction, here are two books that you may be interested in:

1. Lewis, C. S. Surprised by Joy: The Shape of My Early Life.

  • Point: “Really, a young Atheist cannot guard his faith too carefully. Dangers lie in wait for him on every side.” Here is how God sought out a reluctant convert.
  • It would be worth another read and I would recommend it to someone who:
    • tells me that Christianity is devoid of reason
    • cannot ever see themselves believing in a personal God
    • who loves philosophy
    • believes science has all the answers
    • likes the works of C. S. Lewis

2. DeYoung, Kevin. Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book about a (Really) Big Problem

  • Point: Business is a part of life, but it doesn’t have to rule your life.
  • It would be worth another read and I would recommend it to someone who:
    • consistently replies with “Busy” when I ask them how they are doing
    • is frustrated with their current priorities
    • has their children in thirty different programs
    • who views busyness as a badge of honor
