Review: Chapters from My Autobiography by Mark Twain

Image
Chapters from My Autobiography: 1906-1907 by Mark Twain My rating: 4 of 5 stars Some of the reflections he went into after sections written by his daughter were among the most moving I've ever read (or listened to, as the case may be). Twain was a man of many regrets. And an exceptional gift for capturing feeling with language. View all my reviews

Review: What Did You Expect? by Paul David Tripp

What Did You Expect?: Redeeming the Realities of Marriage by Paul David Tripp My rating: 4 of 5 stars Practical, gospel-saturated. The biggest takeaways are that your marriage’s biggest problem is you and your sin, and the only solution is rightly aligned worship. He frequently repeats the important concept that marriages must be fixed vertically before they can be helped horizontally. Worthwhile read for married folks; I was using it in premarital counseling with a couple and it promoted several good discussions in that context as well. View all my reviews
