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

Black and Son

Thomas Hunter is a man who is tossed between two different realties.  Each time he falls asleep, he dreams about a different reality.  Both seem so real, he doesn't know which one is a dream and which is not.   He soon finds that both realities coincide with each other.  He can bring details and warnings back from his dreams.  He learns that one of his realities is in big danger and he has to stop whatever is to come, but will he be able to convince those who rule over him of the danger...after all it was just a dream.

This book is the conclusion of The Giver. It gives us more detail of what happened to Gabe and Jonas after they left their community. It also gives us a story about Gabe's birthmother.  I really enjoyed this book!
