Books read in September

Sir Gibbie by George MacDonald: possibly the best book I've ever read. I only wish there were English translations of the hard to read Scottish dialect.
I Married You by Walter Trobisch (short/profound book on marriage)
The Once and Future King by TH White (Arthurian legend retold; I got bogged down in the middle, but really liked the final 100 pages or so)
The Meaning of the Pentateuch: Revelation, Composition and Interpretation by John Sailhamer (finally finished this helpful book, but disappointed this long book had to be so repetitive. It could have been reduced to 1/3 its final length and saved this and other readers a lot of time). In fact, I think if you read this helpful published essay, you could skip the book-length version, http://www.ibr-bbr.org/IBRBulletin/BBR_2000/BBR_2000_1a_05_Sailhamer_CreationCanon.pdf

Currently Reading:
A History of the American People  by Paul Johnson (a wise Brit speaking truth about the founding and progression of this fascinating country)

Pilgrim's Regress by CS Lewis (read aloud book with Carrie)
The Business of Heaven: Daily Readings from C. S. Lewis (I have been going through Lewis' daily readings since March...great great snippets for thought)
Spiritual Leadership: Principles of Excellence for Every Believer by J. Oswald Sanders (reading this a few chapters a month with my mentor)
