This month, I’d like to share three books that have deepened my reading journey. I’ve included one book I read, one I’m currently reading, and one greatly anticipated book that awaits me on my bookshelf. This selection includes an interesting blend of enthralling allegories, insightful educational philosophies, and engaging biblical study. It’s important to read a wide variety of books, so with that in mind, let’s take this literary journey together.

The Great Divorce

by C.S. Lewis

In my quest to explore the works of C. S. Lewis, I picked up The Great Divorce, a thought-provoking allegory of Heaven. Lewis takes us on a bus ride from Hell to Heaven, where he introduces a cast of characters faced with the inevitable choice between Heaven and Hell. This story touched my soul because Lewis remarkably portrayed these characters in a timeless way that’s still relevant in the twenty-first century. The symbolism and depth of the story in this book are so rich, I’m sure I’ll revisit this book again.

In Vital Harmony

by Karen Glass

If you are a Charlotte Mason home educator, you’ve probably read or heard of In Vital Harmony by Karen Glass. I had the privilege of meeting Karen Glass four years ago, and I consider her a mentor in the philosophy of a Charlotte Mason education. Glass explains Miss Mason’s twenty principles for education, with “Children are born persons” and “Education is the science of relations” as the two key principles. I am constantly finding wisdom and a greater understanding of home education through Glass’s writing and study of Miss Mason’s work.

Women of the Word

by Jen Wilkin

Jen Wilkin’s book, Women of the Word, has been sitting on my shelf for some time. I am always looking for fresh perspectives and ways to study the Bible, and this one promises to provide just that. It has excellent reviews, so I have high expectations that will shed new light on the Word to encourage me on my faith journey.

I’d love to know what you’ve been reading lately or what book you currently have your eyes on from your to-be-read shelf. Please share in the comments!

    Thank you for sharing the books you are currently reading! For once I have one I would like to share, too. Kelli introduced me to “Running on Empty”, by Janice Webb, PhD. It is changing my perspective about the effects of a less than perfect childhood on adult perceptions, chronic depression, and a host of other symptoms of adult brokenness. Ultimately it is giving me hope that the problems we carry into adulthood from parental shortcomings can be reversed, healed and overcome. “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27
