FORTUNATELY there are also books like this one.
I know we are only on the first page here but I'm already going to need to take a minute. It is a weird thing looking back on Christianity from where I am now and wondering why they are SO BAD at things.
ANOTHER pause point. I haven't read IKDG since high school and I did not actually remember that Harris had a girlfriend and stuff.
Whatever. He wants you to read it prayerfully and such. Use all the usual spells, please.
Apparently he hand wrote her a letter when he was 21, asking her to read his manuscript. Told her it probably wasn't even worth reading because hers was so much better.
But really it was just about how thrilled Ruth was to get to read the manuscript, I guess.
Can I just say off the top, she's a MUCH better writer than Dobson? I'm not saying her theology is better.
Let's go. <3
1) There is literally nothing I hate more than people bemoaning IN MY DAY and clutching their pearls.
2) HAS IT THO??
Well. She's fun, isn't she? I can already tell we're going to get along great.
Everyone remember to breathe, please.
Okay, I admit this made me laugh extremely hard and also, Elisabeth? I'm kind of on your side in this ONE INSTANCE. Quick flashback to the Before Times and Baby B!
The thing is that if that IS what she's saying there's some irony there, I think. Y'all know how I feel about language, particularly about the church and language. Go check out the #EvangelicalIntoEnglish tag if you missed it.
Now! On with the show and all that.
That's a long section, but I find it kind of genuinely heartbreaking.
I mean. I would never argue with that. Of course it is. It doesn't mean you HAVE TO.
Either way, we only get to hear about Jim in this book.
