The Second Shelf

The second shelf of my bookshelf is at my eye level, so that's why I chose to put the books here that I did.  I can see them every time I walk by.  I have read or used most of these books, and again I will put an asterisk in front of the titles I've read, used, or listened to.  They are as follows...

*the Word of Promise New Testament NKJV Audio Bible


*The Picture Bible (I've had this one since I was a little girl)
*Fearless by Max Lucado
*Come Thirsty by Max Lucado
*Facing Your Giants by Max Lucado
*Six Hours One Friday by Max Lucado
Having  a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver


The Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan


From Goodreads...
"The Pilgrim's Progress has been printed, read, and translated more often than any book other than the Bible. People of all ages have found delight in the simple, earnest story of Christian, the Pilgrim, and his life-changing, life-affirming adventures."

Like Gold Refined by Janette Oak
*The Love Dare by Stephen and Alex Kendrick
*The Shack by Wm. Paul Young

So there's the second shelf--18 books in all. 


  1. Are you planning on reading The Pilgrim's Progress, too? I am right now, because I am writing a conference paper about pilgrimage in the nineteenth century. The Pilgrim's Progress, of course, was very popular then and influenced lots of pilgrimage stories! I had never read it, and though I am glad I am finally doing it...well, it is really hard to get through, in my opinion. I can only read a little at a time! I am trying my best, but it is a real challenge.

  2. Susie--I'm planning on reading The Pilgrim's Progress, but after looking through the book, I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated. I knew it was going to be a challenge for me, and I've been waiting for the right time to tackle it. Maybe I'll start it soon, and follow your lead reading a little at a time.
