I tried to read as widely as I can. I'm generally fascinated by biographies. Biographies of people who made a notable impact, waves, disruptions of sort. One of history's figures I've had interest in was Genghis Khan. He shaped the history and direction of a people and continent. After conquering a city, he inquired about … Continue reading Genghis Khan And The Mongol’s Theology; A Big God

2013 was a great year. Besides my other blog, I also got to start a photoblog and I Am Jonah, which is this blog. I've already written about why I started I Am Jonah here. 2014 started off with some significant changes for Ingrid and me.

This was a book I never rushed to finish. Partly because I have been reading other books and working on my theology assignments. The other part of it is that I wanted to be careful to take as much in and reflect on some of the things put forward by Frank Viola and George Barna. … Continue reading Pagan Christianity?: A Review
It's taken a while to read and finish this book. I've shared an excerpt from it. I've also made reference to how it made me think about some things. I will be doing a review of it soon. What "spiritual" book have you read or are you reading that's challenging you in your walk?

There's a perspective about "older day" Christians that helps being back some sort of "freshness" into my perspective as a follower of the Way. Some of the simplicity with sincerity people like Tozer wrote with is challenging and a good break from our present "Christian culture". Tozer's "Knowledge of the Holy" deeply impacted me and … Continue reading “Classics”
