Thank Goodness It’s The Friday Hop!

25 Mar

Yay!  It’s Friday!  So what do I do now?  Go on the Friday Hop!  Each week bloggers answer a very important question and then  hop around discovering other blogs.  It’s simple — just click on the icon below to start the journey.

This week’s question:

“If you could physically put yourself into a book or series…which one would it be and why?”

This is a REALLY hard question.  I think my answer is whatever I am reading — I like when books draw you in and you want to be with the characters, get to know them, feel the adventure or the journey.  Right now I am reading The Damascus Way by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke, set in 1st century AD Palestine.  I am wiping sand from my face, listening with rapt attention to Phillip the evangelist and participating in the exhilarating mystery and wonder of being a new believer.  Each book is its own adventure.

The fledgling church is being scattered by persecution, spearheaded by a fanatical young Pharisee who does not realize he is aiding a divine mandate to spread the truth “unto the ends of the earth…”

Julia has everything money can buy…except for acceptance by either the Gentiles or the Jews. Her Greek father already has a wife and family, leaving Julia and her Hebrew mother second-class citizens. But when they are introduced to followers of the Way, they become part of that community of believers… and everything changes.

    Yes, that would be a wonderful spot to be in….or how about popping into the Gospels and sitting at the feet of Jesus. Wow.

    Here’s my post for this blog hop. Hope you will stop by.

    I’m a new follower!

    Apologies in advance for my answer this week as it will not immediately resonate with the book blogger population which happens to be 99.5% female.

    My choice is a book series geared towards guys which won’t enthrall the vast majority of my fellow book bloggers (who are almost entirely female) with the extensive discussion of powerful weapons and sexy milspec gear, beautiful women, eye-popping action sequences (with occasionally obscene violence), and the like.

    But there IS something in my answer that just about everyone of the female persuasion can benefit from my decidedly “books for guys” post. Hop on over to http://www.howardsherman.net to find out what it is.

    Happy Hop Friday!
