October was a fun, productive, and thought-provoking month when it came to my books. A mega best-selling memoir, a book on theology and the church, Pulitzer Prize winning fiction, a recently released international best-seller, and a theological reread on Heaven, Hell, and eternity.
Becoming by Michelle Obama
Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans
The Overstory by Richard Powers
The Midnight Library by Matt Haig
Love Wins by Rob Bell
Michelle Obama’s book was fantastic. My second Rachel Held Evans book was a theologically progressive breath of fresh air. The Overstory was a grind but still amazing. The Midnight Library was a really great fable, a kind of It’s a Wonderful Life for 2020. And Rob Bell’s Love Wins was a great reread, reminding me of how wide the gates of my faith tradition can open.
All in all, it was a great month. Reviews are in the pictures below, and in my Instagram Stories Highlights. Hope you find a book to add to your list!
