But wait, there’s more. | Empire
I. Can. Not. Wait.
For me, few books have ever captured what it’s like to grow up in an Evangelical household the way RAPTURE PRACTICE does…and, the beauty of it all, is that Aaron Hartzler treats his subjects (his own family) with care, detail, and not a bit of bitterness or distrust. This is a beautiful, hilarious, and quite heart-warming story. I can’t recommend this one enough.
And just look at that cover. Beautiful. (And maybe the best book title of the year).
(Someday we will have coffee, and my passionate opinions about public education will be slightly off-putting.)
