Fiction is not False

After months of on-and-off reading, I finally finished Leif Enger's Peace Like a River. Kristie had read it a while back in her book club, and I also found out that John Piper was high on the work. So, I picked it up with eagerness, and I was not disappointed. While it's not my favorite book of all time, it was worth the time and effort.

I like what one reviewer said about the book: "Peace Like a River is a book that serves to remind us why we read fiction to begin with."

Here is Piper's blog about the book.

And, here is a helpful article on why we should give ourselves to fiction . . . becuase fiction is not false.

Read it several years ago and loved it. Might be time to go back and read it again...
