#bookhaul
Second hand book sale at the church down the road. I hadn‘t planned to go and may have been quoted as saying “it‘ll be filled with popular books I won‘t want”

Feeling sheepish now 😜

Kavalier and Clay is to replace my copy that a friend borrowed and lost. 🙌

Happy #roll100 day! Another eclectic match up is in store for me in March 😆

#5 is The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys
#28 is Circle of Friends

Circle of Friends is a little on the chunky side (almost 600 pages), so hopefully #bookspin is good to me and the rest of my March reads are on the shorter side 🤞

PuddleJumper Good luck! 600 pages is quite the tome! 3mo

I have no ambition to change my nature, I merely intend to conquer my dislikes.

This isn't an apologetic, but also it totally is. It definitely it isn't a systematic theology, but it gets its hand around most of what it ought. This is a highly personal, modern look at culture and Christ and who must always be victorious. A treat, front to back.

If I challenge I must be made to fight, or there is no poetry in challenging. If I vow to be faithful I must be cursed when I am unfaithful, or there is no fun in vowing... Christian marriage is the great example of a real and irrevocable result; and that is why it is the chief subject and center of all our romantic writing... I should ask to be kept to my bargain, to have my oaths taken seriously; I should ask Utopia to avenge my honor on myself.

"There is one thing that Christ and all the Christian saints have said with a sort of savage monotony. They said simply that to be rich is to be in peculiar danger of moral wreck... it is quite certainly un-Christian to trust the rich, to regard the rich as more morally safe than the poor."
