Book Review: “Charitable Writing”(Richard Hughes Gibson and James E. Beitler III)

Finally, I have finished this great book on writing and now I want to share not just quotes from it but my impression of this volume. It’s took me a few months before I finish this due to the fact that I have to give way to other books that is short so I can have something to put on my blog. But as I lay aside this book and the parts I already read, the content still is stuck in my mind all throughout those time that’s why I was so eager to pick it up and finish it.

The introduction to Charitable Writing is of course essential but its a bit long. However, once you get out of the woods and it will be a smooth and enjoyable ride. Its a long read so expect it to be grueling but interesting journey.

Book Review: “A Brief Theology of Periods (Yes, Really)” (Rachel Jones)

The novelty of this book is the selling point for me to get this book. I’ve reviewed books that are quite unique and rarely been discussed. Books on sleeping, sports and poetry plus an unfinished book on writing got my attention. Then this book on menstruation came and could be the most peculiar book that I have encountered. But I got some questions as I read this latest from Rachel Jones: Does this book stands on biblical grounds or it’s just to tease our curiosity? Do we really need a book like this in the first place? After diving in the book, I found answers to those inquires.

Fans of fiction writings can easily see traces of the biblical gospel in the literature they read. They may not be aware it or they might not admit it, readers gets suck into the stories that have been told over and over again. As Christians, we need to be aware of two things. One, God implanted those stories in our very being and two, although we see the glimpses of the redemption story of Christ, those stories wont save us. They’re merely pointing us to the gospel itself that we need for the forgiveness of sins and salvation.
