I just finished reading Debbie Blue’s From Stone to Living Word: Letting the Bible Live Again.
One of my favorite images in Blue’s book is the contrast between a stone and an octopus. Yes, God is our rock, but God is alive, moving, and difficult to grasp. God is more like an Octopus than a stone.
There is lots of good practical theology in this book. Blue’s church House of Mercy is just a few blocks from our apartment. I’d recommend this book highly.
By the way, be sure to check out my What I’m Reading page to see what other books to check out.
