Sharing Books on The Spillover

In Soul Food on August 3, 2011 by The Spillover

I love to read books about God, and often times good books are the source of great material to share on this blog. I’ve entertained the idea of writing book summaries/reviews after I finish each one, so you guys could read my thoughts and offer your own (if you’ve read the book in question). But I’m no good at reviewing books (I’m no Tim Challies). As I’ve been reading through Radical by David Platt I’ve been noting some of the ideas that really stuck out and occasionally posting them as quotes on The Spillover…and this has turned out to be a pretty cool way of sharing some of the highlights from the book.

So I’m going to start creating categories for each particular book I read. If you check the pull-down menu at the top of the page you’ll find “Radical by David Platt” listed – click on it to get all the quotes I’ve listed from that book. Since I just decided to employ this strategy and I’m almost finished with Radical, there aren’t many from that particular book (which has been awesome, by the way). In the future though, I’ll share thoughts from the current book more frequently. Almost like a “cliff notes” read-along. Or something.

Next up is Erasing Hell by Francis Chan. I’ll add it as a category. If you haven’t read it yet, please feel free to pick it up and read along with me.

And of course, if you want to offer highlights from any book you’re reading, don’t be shy. I’ll create a category and post snippets as you email them to me.

Thanks for reading the blog and keeping in touch. As always, your comments and emails are appreciated.
