What’s On My Nightstand: April


I participated in this carnival back in February (click to see what I was reading then). I’m not reading anything political right now, unless you want to count the Two Views… book. I enjoyed Radical Womanhood, and my review should be posted at DR sometime this week. I loved Jane Eyre!

Light Reading
A Proverbs Driven Life: Timeless Wisdom for Your Words, Work, Wealth, and Relationships by Anthony Selvaggio. I am going to try to adapt this one and teach it to the kids. Just today I’ve had to get onto two of them for name-calling. What is it about the words “head” and “face” that make them so perfect for attaching another noun to create an insult? You probably have no idea what I’m talking about. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m also reading a couple of fiction books to the kids: The Family Under the Bridge to the younger two and Secret of the Andes to the elder two.

Medium
Two Views on Women in Ministry by several editors and contributors. The only one I remember is Thomas Schreiner (because I was already familiar with him).

Heavy
Word Biblical Commentary Vol. 50, 2 Peter, Jude by Richard Bauckham. Because I’m studying 2 Peter.

I’m still reading Calvin’s Institutes. Daily Bible reading has me in Leviticus, Psalms, Isaiah, and Ephesians.
Should I even include this on the list every month?

  1. I haven’t attempted actually reading a commentary yet, though I’ve thought about it. Good for you! I’ll have to give it a try.

  2. I remember reading The Family Under the Bridge and loving it when I was little. I don’t remember much about it now, but I remember liking the book.I may need to look at that Proverbs book for us, too. I need the encouragement to teach it to my kids.

  3. I took the kids to the park this afternoon which gave me more time to read. I was able to read a few more chapters of the Proverbs book, and, I must tell you, it is so good!

  4. Oh yeah the family under the Bridge – I don’t think I’ve read that in like 20 years! And Jane Erye is of course one of my very favorite novels. I always feel like I AM Jane. =) Have you read Nicole’s review of it (168 Hours?). She has some good insights pointing out Jane’s motivations vs. the motivations of a believer (and uses Ruth as an example, I think?).

  5. I’m looking forward to your review of Radical Womanhood!I LOVED Jane Eyre!!! I was one of the only people I know my age who didn’t have to read it in school, so I read it toward the end of 2008 and just devoured it ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. My review of Radical Womanhood is published at Discerning Reader. I’m probably not going to publish it to my blog.

  9. We use Drawing With Proverbs in the morning and while it is geared for my kids the wisdom taught is not lost on me ;)Samuel’s drawing of a pig with a gold ring in his snout is priceless.Sorry I missed your birthday yesterday! Hope your day was wonderful and especially your upcoming little getaway. That whole idea appeals to me and scares me at the same time … whatever that means?Have a wonderful time.
