In her book, Not God’s Type, Dr. Holly Ordway chronicles her story of coming to faith in Jesus Christ. Surprisingly, Ordway marries her background as an English professor with her career as a competitive fencer to tell how she came to believe that there could be reason behind faith.
In last week’s book review I mentioned that I was skeptical of 2 kinds of books: leadership books and prayer books. In 2015, I was fortunate to read one book from each category that I not only tolerated, but deeply enjoyed. Last week, I reviewed the leadership book; today, I am reviewing the prayer book. Its author is Timothy Keller and its title is, “Prayer: Experiencing Awe and Intimacy with God.”
I’m generally skeptical of 2 kinds of books: prayer books and leadership books. I was fortunate to have read 1 from each category in 2015 that I actually enjoyed. In fact, I place both at the top of my list for books in their respective categories. I’ll break down the prayer book next week, but today, I’m reviewing Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter by Liz Wiseman.
