The Case For Christ…and Robin Hood?
Posted by Vogeler on January 2, 2007
So, our small group is starting tonight. We’re going to be reading through The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel. Lee is a former journalist for the Chicago Tribune. He became a Christian while on a quest to prove to his Christian wife that her faith was wrong. The book is the story of his journey.
I love this book. I encourage everyone to get a copy. Also, if you are a young couple under 30 and are interested in this study, you can contact our group leader, Nathan Diehl, at email@example.com
Now, the Robin Hood thing.
Stephen R. Lawhead is one of my favorite fiction writers. He has re-written many of the legends surrounding King Arthur, using a lot of real historical evidence (unlike the recent movie with Clive Owen, which, while entertaining, is SO inaccurate). I would highly recommend his works, as he skillfully, and subtly, interweaves his Christian faith into his books. His latest, Hood puts a much different spin on the Robin Hood legends, using some very early source material that indicates a Welsh origin for the legend. Good stuff!!
What’s your favorite book? If it really is the Bible, great! But I’d like to know what book besides the Bible is your favorite.
Oh, yeah, Happy 2007. Good luck remembering to write 2007 instead of 2006.
