This year started off quite well with this blog. In giving suggestions to start the year right, I mentioned giving the book The Fred Factor, by Mark Sanborn, a read. Mr. Sanborn had gotten a Google alert that I had mentioned his book and thanked me in the comments . Following that we exchanged emails and he had mentioned that judging by my writings, he saw that I was a Christian. Mark then sent me a book called Roaring Lambs, by Bob Briner. The book detailed how one could practice their Christian faith while working in the everyday world. The book gave emphesis on media and the arts.
Most of the people who read this blog are professing Christians. I believe that we are the roaring lamb type. We let our faith show by the way we write. The blogs I read are entertaining and informative, but do not try to shove the Lamb of God down other readers throats.
A few weeks ago I was at a library book sale where you could fill a grocery bag with books for $2.00. One of the books I bought was Lambs Among Wolves, also by Bob Briner. The book gives examples of roaring lambs in entertainment, journalism, and other walks. He gives examples of well known and not so well known people giving a gentle witness of the Gospel with amazing results. I found that you could get a copy of Lambs Among Wolves from Amazon at an extremely low price. Click on either book image to go to Amazon for information on ordering these. I think these would make very thoughtful gifts.
Also click on the image at the upper right of Mark Sanborn's latest best seller, The Encore Effect. It's a great book on doing your work in a way that you leave those you work for wanting more. Cliff Note: That's in a good way!
