To Spare My Loved Ones Of All My Geekiness...

I'm a geek, I can accept that. I love to read, bake, sew....oh and shop! That should count for something against my geekiness! But alas, even the shopping has been quite curtailed since married life began ;-)

Yes, I was the little girl that you often see sitting away from the rest of the group, watching and observing the others or with my nose buried deep in a book (*sniff sniff*). My mom would beg me to go outside and play in the sunshine with the kids in the neighborhood and all I wanted to do was be left alone in my room with my books. Unfortunately I don't share the passion of reading with many others. There are a few of us out there and for that reason, I began this blog so as not to drive away my usual family and friend readers of "A First For Everything" as I delve into detail of books I'm currently reading.

So here we go - my first book review is:

"Simply Christian: Why Christianity Makes Sense" by N.T. Wright.

Not exactly a "simple" book on Christianity. I'm not as comfortable devouring anything I read on someone's take of who God is and how they interpret the Bible. I started this book because our small group at church decided to read it together and discuss what we thought chapter by chapter when we met on Tuesday nights. Even as a group we quickly lost interest maybe halfway through. But being as how I feel compelled to always finish a book, I finished it anyway. I'm not saying that N.T. Wright's teachings are right or wrong in this book, I'm just not as open to take everything I read as truth, unless its from the Word of God itself.
