Each week (give or take one here and there) I share three things I like – It could be a book, a movie, a podcast, an album, a photo, an article, a restaurant, a food item, a beverage, or anything else I simply enjoy and think you might too. You can find a whole pile of things, especially books, I like and recommend HERE.
1. The Quotable Lewis edited by Wayne Martindale & Jerry Root
I’m a bit biased since both of the editors for this wonderful volume were professors of mine in college. Beyond that, however, this book is an incredibly valuable resource. It is organized by topic and pulling from all of C.S. Lewis’s writings from books to essays to letters to poems. In some cases lengthy portions and entire essays are included and in other cases tweetable gold is scattered across the pages. It shows the range of Lewis as a thinker, writer, correspondent, and communicator. The Quotable Lewis is essential for any appreciator of his work and an ideal gift for a Lewis lover.
2. Amazon Echo
I thought the very idea of the echo was ridiculous for a long time. But then I hung out with a few friends who had them and I realized just how handy they are, so I got one. Amazon is always running sales on these, so they are affordable enough that it doesn’t feel like a splurge or a risk. The sound quality of the speaker is excellent, the voice commands work flawlessly. You can make calls from it and link to any other Amazon devices you have too. It is a toy, a convenience, and delightful addition to any home.
3. Humble Beast
Record Label, Clothing Line, Book Publisher, Conference Host – Humble Beast does so many things and does them well. What sets them apart is the thoughtful, intentional craft and creativity they put into each effort. They care about artfulness because it is reflective of God and reflecting God is what they really seek to do. Words, pictures, beats, melodies, harmonies, and designs are all created and arranged with the specific intention if beautifully expressing and portraying the creativity of The Creator.
