Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man by Fannie Flagg -- A fiction book I got at a book exchange. Rather cute and fun and easy for when you want something light to read.
Jesus, The Middle Eastern Storyteller by Gary M. Burge -- I got this last Christmas, and had it in my "to-be-read" pile. I picked it up before Christmas this year and finished it today. I enjoyed reading this short book and thinking of Jesus' parables in their cultural context. The author discusses honor and shame in a community and how people would uphold it. He talked about the story of the lost sheep, coin and son. He discussed extending grace, and compassion. I may have to read this one again soon!
