Tomorrow (May 19th) marks the birthday of one of our favorite writers, Marilyn McEntyre.
In honor of the occasion, we offer this intro reading guide to her books…
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and we offer a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
Well-known biblical phrases — “in the fullness of time,” “fearfully and wonderfully made,” “in the beauty of holiness,” and others — suggest and evoke and invite. In this book Marilyn Chandler McEntyre offers brief reflections on more than fifty such scriptural phrases that prompt readers to pay attention, to pause where we sense a beckoning.
