I super like this. I’m going to definitely read some of these.
I hope to read more Marva Dawn this year too, I read her book “Unfettered hope” last year, and parts of “Keeping the Sabbath Wholly.” She is so prolific! I also want to read Cristena Cleveland’s book as well, since I enjoy her blog a lot.
I just finished DIsunity in Christ by Christena Cleveland. I would consider it a must read, if you want to borrow it in May let me know!
