As a Christian who attended a secular school, The University of Kansas, I wish I had read this book sooner. Nothing I encountered on campus was sufficient to undermine my faith, but I often didn’t know how to answer the accusations atheists threw out, as if they were reading from a predetermined list. I never thought about how to dismantle an atheist’s position. That’s where Norman Geisler and Daniel McCoy’s book, The Atheist Fatal Flaw, could have changed my experience.

In the introduction to his book, The Pastor’s Kid, Barnabas Piper writes two things that capture The Pastor’s Kid. First Piper describes the three objectives of his book: Give voice to PKs and their challenges, speak to pastors about how they can help their kids, and write to the church about how to “ease the burden of the pastor and his family” (p. 17).
Next Friday, November 22, 2013, marks the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. It was a defining moment in our nation’s history and a day that will be much discussed over the next two weeks on television, in newspapers and across dinner tables everywhere.
Killing Kennedy, by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, has spent a lot of time since its release last year on the New York Times Bestseller List and it is this week’s True Tuesday Showcase.
In October 2012, Malala Yousafzai made international headlines for standing up to the Taliban for her right to an education. At just 16 years old, she is an inspiration for women around the world and someone young girls can look up to as a positive role model. Her autobiography, I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban is this week’s True Tuesday Showcase.
Who are some other positive role models you can recommend for young girls? Please share with us in the comments.
Last week we started a new feature called True Tuesday Showcase and y’all seemed to like it, so we’ll continue with that theme. This week, we’re highlighting Run, Brother, Run: A Memoir of Murder in My Family by David Berg.
A searing family memoir of a tempestuous Texas boyhood that led to the vicious murder of the author’s brother. As William Faulkner said, “The past is not dead, it’s not even past.” This observation seems especially true in matters of family, when the fury between generations is often never resolved and instead secretly carried, a wound that cannot heal.
So, I think we’re going to start a new weekly feature on Tuesdays showcasing books that are based on a true story. What do you think?
Let’s start with this week’s new release MY STORY by Eliabeth Smart with Chris Stewart. For months, Elizabeth’s kidnapping dominated the news, but this is really the first time we get to read her story in her own words.
