This week I have a guest post on Claudia McFie’s blog down in New Zealand. Claudia became a friend back in 2012 when she posted on her favorite Christian books and included my Kneeling with Giants in her top ten. I found myself in some very fine company.
Since then I’ve done a Skype session with her small group when they were praying their way through that book. More recently she joined the Launch Team for my new book Love Your Bible: Finding Your Way to the Presence of God with a 12th Century Monk.
(By the way, she’s giving away a paperback copy of Love Your Bible to someone who leaves a comment on my post on her blog. Just click through to participate!)

There are lots of reasons loving the Bible seems like a stretch today… click here to read the rest.
