When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

An Acceptable Time

Polly O'Keefe is staying with her grandparents the Murrys.  The Murry's live in a small town were they're only friends are Dr. Louise Colubra and her brother, Bishop Colubra, who soon become good friends with Polly.  Bishop Colubras has somehow opened a time gate into the past that only he and Polly can go into and out.  Polly's grandparents try to keep her safe, so they're always keeping in eye on her.  But one day when Polly's friend Zachary, who is deathly ill, is in town, they both go into the time gate.  But the time gate closed as they were in and they are now stuck in the past.  But thankfully Bishop Colubra is in it with them. But how will the three of them get back into their own time?  I liked this book!

  1. Sounds like the movie Back to the Future starring Michael J Fox, which came out in 1984, and revived skateboarding's popularity for the 80's. Incidentally, that is also the same year Apple came out with the Macintosh computer. Apple aired infamous superbowl commercial stating they were going to revolutionize desktop publishing, which of course they did. 1984 was an exciting time. I wish I could go back to 1984, then maybe my clothes would be in style too. (your grandma's too, sshhh) Ha!
