    Now, now Dr. Murray – no cheap jabs at youth pastors! Thanks for this.

    Thanks Dr. Murray! I stumbled upon your blog searching for new book suggestions. This is great. I really appreciate the four suggestions! I’m definitely going to look into Ordinary.

    I wanted to pass along one my pastor recommended to me. It’s the #1 bestseller on religious fiction, so maybe you’ve already heard of it. But I can’t stop thinking about. It’s a fantastic collection of short stories. It’s called Pieces Like Pottery. I really can’t recommend it enough. I would love to see your review of it at some point!
