A Break for the Weekend…


Dear Readers:

In order to allow myself a bit more time to work on my new book, Building Christian Character through “The Hobbit”, I will be taking the weekends off for a little bit.  I will still be posting daily devotions Monday through Friday, however, and I would also like to offer you a sample of my new work!  Please open the Word document below to read Chapter 1, and feel free to tell me what you think.  Enjoy!

  1. Heeheehee, “dwarven downpour.”
    I really enjoy the way you put words together, and it looks like this is going to be another fascinating read, and put another perspective (for me) on Bilbo, and Gandalf, and Thorin and the other dwarves. I’m looking forward to it!

  2. I fully support this decision, Andrew! I thought the 7-days-a-week thing was insane to begin with. As much as I’ve enjoyed the daily dose of the Word, I can’t imagine how much work it is to produce devotions for us on a daily basis. Everyone needs rest – the Lord orders us to take a day of rest! I’m glad you’ve come to your senses! We will be all the more eager after a weekend away to get back to our weekday devotionals with you, and you will be more refreshed and ready to tackle another week, as well. May God continue to bless you in this valuable ministry.

  3. It’s awesome so far. I know this is going to shock you, but I can’t wait till it’s finished so I can read. :)


  4. I just read or re-read this post and it really helps me after making it through the first 3 chapters of The Hobbit. Got to read next two so I can read today’s post of ch. 5 summary. Thanks for broadening my simple mind!
    Only by His grace,
