Wednesday With Words: A Boiling Imagination

Today, I wanted to share this lovely quote from Francis Shaeffer’s He Is There And He Is Not Silent, a book which tackles the distortion of truth and goodness in our current culture, and shows how Christianity is the only viable option that can explain our world. This particular quote is extremely encouraging to me as an author and creative person, because, sometimes, Christians get caught up in this idea that we shouldn’t be creative, because it must be wrong somehow.

Creativity


On my reading list this week:

The Blue Castle by L. M. Montgomery: Another lesser-known novel by the author of Green Gables. It was on our shelf, and I am very good at not reading the things I probably should be reading (*cough, cough* The Mysterious Benedict Society *cough, cough*) so I thought I’d try it out. I’m only a chapter in, but it already promises to be very interesting.

Wednesday with Words: The God Who Is There

It’s a new year, but I’m still working on some of my school books from 2016. One of them is Francis Shaeffer’s Trilogy, a collection of three of his books, including The God Who Is There. In this day and age, when many people reduce humans to very intelligent animals  or some kind of biological machine, this quote provides an interesting contrast:

To ask that man should have been made so that he was not able to revolt is to ask that God’s creation should have ceased after He created plants and animals. It is to ask that man should be reduced to machine programming. It is to ask that man as man should not exist.

Francis Schaeffer,

The God Who Is There

On my reading list this week:

Starcross by Philip Reeve: I really enjoyed the first book of this whimsical steampunk series, Larklight, and I want to finish the second book. I got it as an audiobook from the library, but what with school and trying to finish up Little Dorrit, I’ve gotten a bit sidetracked.

The Hacked World Order by Adam Segal: Another library book I’m trying to finish. I may or may not be researching something for a project… 😉
