Just look at these gorgeous books! If that’s not proof that I am the most amazing book worm ever, then I don’t know what is. You jealous? Yeah, you should be. Want my books? Too bad. Want to sniff it? Get out of my house! Okay okay, I am clearly kidding. This is not the most amazing collection of books you have ever seen and I am not the best reader in the world. Frankly, I’d nominate our fellow blogger David for a position as a book worm. He’ll literally read to the point of insanity. Ask him for more details! Well anyway, I was blessed to have received these books from a friend that I am not sure wants to be named here. And contrary to what the image humbly suggests, these books do not really belong to me as much as it belongs to the team at Walking Christian. If any of my fellow bloggers are interested in reading these books, feel free to let me know but please expect a 2-3 year shipping delay. There’s another book that I ordered via Kindle titled “Memorize the Faith!” – which for technical reasons could not be included in the image.
I personally prefer ebooks but nothing does beat the physical experience of waiting to receive a book in the mail and opening it up like it’s your first time getting a package. Oh, must I mention the life-changing experience of sniffing the book as you turn its lovely pages? It’s such an addictive drug, trust me. Try it out for yourself someday at a bookstore near you. For a philosopher though, the best part is sinking in all of that information and feeling like you’re becoming 10x smarter. I really couldn’t ask for a better gift. Though at first, I honestly resisted because I don’t want to be a free loader. He convinced me to accept the offer but I still feel as if nothing I can say or do could show my appreciation. It’s hard because I think other people are better than I am and deserve these things much more than I ever could (c.f, David the Book Worm). Nevertheless, it appears the Lord has blessed me with many things and I really do hope to share this knowledge with others on WC. Or perhaps you’ll have some insightful criticism (I’m looking at you, Robert!).
I’ll be discussing my reading habits soon, something that I am not particularly proud of but hopefully it’ll work as an inspiration for future discipline. I should note that one of the books (Think Christianly) was actually a gracious offer by the folks at Engaging Church. I’ll be providing a review to this ASAP. For those who want some quick links to the books that I just received, I’ll provide them in a second. Please note that these are affiliate links, so if you purchase them through us, you’ll be supporting the future growth of WC. I’ll explain why we’re doing that in the future as well but your support means a lot to us. Rest assured, we’re not a secret terrorist organization with an agenda to blow up abortion clinics. Your support will go toward the continuation of this ministry, not for future trips to Disney Land or Las Vegas. Here you go:
- The Last Superstition – Edward Feser
- An Introduction to Philosophy – Daniel J. Sullivan
- Think Christianly – Jonathan Morrow
- Questions that Matter – Ed. L. Miller, John Jensen
- Memorize the Faith! (And Most Anything Else) – Kevin Vost
Enjoy being a Book Worm!
