SPRING BREAK! Can I get an Amen?!?!
I don’t know about you, but it’s hard for me to read for pleasure during the school year. Trust me, I have no problem catching the zzz’s once my head hits the pillow at night. So, I save up all my favorite reads for summer, and maybe one or two for spring break.
Our spring break begins today. And since I just kissed the Littles’ out the door for school, mine has officially begun!
I can’t wait to read Scouting the Divine by Margaret Feinberg. My brother recommended the book to me after meeting Margaret at the AMIA Winter Conference in January. I immediately downloaded Scouting the Divine to my iphone kindle app, and my hard copy arrived just in time for my Spring Break Read-a-Thon.
Since I haven’t finished the book yet, you’ll have to wait for a full review. However, my hope is that Scouting the Divine will be a great selection for a summer book club I’m planning. Here’s the teaser from Margaret’s website:
A woman living a modern life. A Bible full of ancient truths. Join critically acclaimed author Margaret Feinberg as she invites readers on the spiritual adventure of a lifetime. In her quest to better understand what God wants to communicate through the Bible, Feinberg explores the symbols and metaphors within the stories. To discover these deeper meanings, she spends time with a shepherdess in Oregon, walks the fields with a farmer in Nebraska, explore a vineyard of California, and talks with a veteran beekeeper in Colorado. Along the way, she gains deeper insight about how scripture applies to life today and discovers answers to puzzling questions. Do sheep really know their shepherd’s voice? How often does a grapevine need to be pruned? What does it mean for a land to be described as overflowing with honey?
