My Beach Reading

Last week while I was at Seaside, I spent four days in my beach chair (complete with cup holder), with my feet in the water, periodically counting heads (my five children's), and reading this book, Knowing God by J.I. Packer.

I highly recommend this book!  It was thought-provoking, challenging and encouraging.  I read it because it is one of four books that Olivia will read next year as part of her requirements for earning a high school credit in Bible.  I plan to buy her a new copy, for two reasons.

1.  The current copy is salty and splattered with seawater.
2.  I want to keep the copy I just read so I can reread it, chapter by chapter and underline, take some notes, etc.  This book was full of Scripture references, and I want to look up and read each and every one.

I plan to begin rereading Knowing God when I finish my B90 reading on October 8.

The main theme of this book is that to know God, you must love His Word.  And in my opinion, we can't love something we don't know, and we can't know something we don't spend time that is one reason why reading my Bible has to be high priority in my life.
