The Time Keeper

THE TIME KEEPER

By Mitch Albom

I found this fictional story very interesting, the story tells how father time became father time. The main character Dor start out wanting to keep track of time in everything he does. He invents different way to keep track of time, like the water clock and the calendar. The story tells many parts of his life, from his childhood to his adult life and ends up in a cave as father time. The story continues with Dor tells stories of two people, Sarah Lemon and Victor Delamonte. Sarah, a teenager, and Victor, a elderly businessman, want to stop time or get more time for what they think is important. Neither knows the other but they will before the end of the story. The story shows how our lives can interact with others. A fascinating story of how we will try to manipulate things for what we think is the best way. This book will inspire you and will help you to understand the true meaning of time.

Here is a quote from the book that I like; Dor was talking to Victor about why there is a limit on our days:

"There is a reason God limits our days."

"Why?"

"To make each one precious."

PURSUING JUSTICE

PURSUING JUSTICE

The Call To Live & Die For Bigger Things

By Ken Wytsma with D. R. Jacobsen

Justice, what is it? The author will help you understand what it is and why it matters. Ken explains that God is a just God and how Christians need to understand God’s justice. Ken offers many examples to justice and injustices that take place in this world. He offers scriptures on how God is a just God, and how God want us to do justice in a needy world.

The book is very informative and is on a subject that Christians need to understand. At times, we will follow our own ambitions, dreams, and end up making things worse than they are. I think the author makes many excellent points and are points that need our understanding for a better world.

Some areas Ken covers are Justice as a way of knowing God, How justice informs love, How empathy carries justice, and many others. The book will make you think about how you act, worship and live.

Ken offers some disturbing statistics about Christianity in the USA and gives examples of how Christians can do more of an injustice when we think we are doing justice and being helpful. The book will open your eyes to why God’s justice is important.
