i finished reading scott stapp's 'sinners creed'. very good book. and like someone else pointed out, it indicates that he still struggles with his flesh... with addiction. and wisely, he knows he always will, and that he will always need to rely on God to get him through.
so now i started reading a book that was recommended by my mom and my SIL. it's called "the cutting edge". by ace collins. it's fair, so far. i'll keep reading it. it's about a model who gets her face slashed up with a whisky bottle during a robbery gone bad. i think the author writes like she's a bit inexperienced, and there's been a few errors that should have been caught, so i'm surprised that this is an author who has published more than 60 books and has been featured on all sorts of talk shows. i would expect better from someone like that. seriously. here's an example.... if there were an incoming trauma at an ER, wouldn't you expect the doctor on duty to be paged to the ER "stat"? instead, in the book, the nurse pages "dr. craig, come to the ER, it's an emergency!" and then repeats the page. and words like "beautifully" get spelled "beautiful-ly". what's up with that?
i'll finish it though. and then i'll find something that is written with a more mature voice.
