Review: Chapters from My Autobiography by Mark Twain


Chapters from My Autobiography: 1906-1907Chapters 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.

Review: What Did You Expect? by Paul David Tripp


What Did You Expect?: Redeeming the Realities of MarriageWhat 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.
