On Our Shelf
Updated: May 4
by Erika Castiglione
Though the past few dreary days have, unfortunately, not been ideal for outdoor meetings, they have been perfect for curling up with a good book. Thankfully, our Waypoint library has remained open and we have been adding to our shelves. If you are looking for something to read this winter, you might want to check out one of the following selections.
7 Myths About Singleness
By Sam Alberry
A couple of years ago I set out to find Christian books on singleness that I could recommend to others and this book stood out. Where other books seemed to view singleness as either simply a waiting period until marriage, or a tragic fate to be pitied, Sam Alberry paints an honest portrait of the struggles of the single, celibate life while still celebrating the unique gifts that single men and women bring to the church and the sufficiency of Christ to meet their every need.
Cherish: The One Word That Changes Everything for Your Marriage
By Gary Thomas
Although The Meaning of Marriage by Timothy and Kathy Keller is my go-to book recommendation for anyone seeking to understand both the theology and beauty of Christian marriage, Cherish is my new go-to for couples who have been married several years and might have forgotten the joy of honoring and appreciating one another.
The Tech-Wise Family: Everyday Steps for Putting Technology in its Proper Place
By Andy Crouch
The practical and encouraging wisdom in this book is especially fitting in our current circumstances. Although our family hasn’t applied all of the advice in this book, we have benefited from its principles. I appreciate that it goes beyond just safety to building a healthy and wise relationship with technology, as well as its emphasis on being a creator instead of just a consumer.
