Book Review - Heaven How I got Here: The Story of the Thief on The Cross by Colin S Smith
I  would classify this book as creative nonfiction. As

disappointed.  A good novel communicates
truth by showing it to us.  Creative
nonfiction is telling something, rather than showing so...

Keller is a master at clarity, thoroughness and anticipating the objections of
his readers.  The book meets well the
objective of the series to be ...

Finshed - "Reading for Preaching" by Cornelius Plantinga Jr.
I have to admit there was a bit of uneasiness alternating with sheer delight in reading this book. The uneasiness comes perhaps from my own bias. As the author says "My outlook contains all my own shortsightedness, bias, bigotry. To have a shot at integrity...
