Posted by Andy Boyer on

Looking for a good beach book? Or a good book in general? Often for me that means fiction, particularly crime fiction and these days Scandinavian crime fiction. That is all well and good, but what if you could use your beach time to deepen your understanding of God, nourish your soul, and grow...
