loved this book. reminded me of a portrait of the artist as a young man.
bleak- but interesting.

wow. this book is totally blowing me away.
sorry… i couldn’t stomach how sharp his humor is in this book.
i’ve heard rave reviews for a long time about this book. i understand now. it’s not something you have to read cover to cover to appreciate. it is laid out topically. i think the ideas a’ kempis lays out are revolutionary and hard core. it was written for novice monks. guess the fact that i think it lays out hard core ideas makes me a novice!
A story about "When People Are Big and God is Small: Overcoming Peer Pressure, Codependency, and the Fear of Man (Resources for Changing Lives)" — 8 years ago
this book seemed to have a great undergirding of biblical paradigm on the nature of man.
i did wonder if the author was a bit reactionary to the influence that pop psychology has had on the way christian’s understand the sin of the fear of man.
this is one of more influencial books i’ve ever read. practical yet lots of biblical background. this is my third time reading it and i’m using it in a mentoring relationship.
A story about "The Catcher in the Rye" — 8 years ago

but i still love it. love the vulnerability of holden caufield. we read this for bookclub.
a book club read.
quick read that was refreshing to read.
