Sarah Clarkson: A few of the books that smacked me in the brain and changed the way I think in 2012.
The delightful Sarah Clarkson, author of “Journeys of Faithfulness: Stories of Life and Faith for Young Christian Women,” has posted her list of books of the year for 2012. If you’re not familiar with Clarkson, this quote will give you a little taste of, well, her taste:
“Beauty seen and people loved are my passions. Grace comes the clearest to me amidst friendship and family, in the beauty of good stories, in vigorous discussion, art in myriad form, and music, always music. I will do almost anything for a strong cup of coffee or tea and am always ready to enter the buzz of a good debate. I love the green earth; hope someday to live a little closer to it, but for now am always eager for a foray into the mountains or down into the valleys. Life is, to my thought, a feast to be celebrated, a grace to be daily blessed, and my delight is to live it fully through beloved God and the people he has given me to love.”
She explains: “This won’t be a long list, just a few of the books that smacked me in the brain and changed the way I think. I will only count books that were, in my evaluation, marvelous, and that I had never read before, and that I read in their entirety.”
