Letter: Good books

The World Eye Bookshop may not be a “Christian bookstore” but it is a terrific place to buy “The Good Book” and books about the Bible. I have a wide-ranging library of books on the Bible and Jesus purchased at World Eye over the decades — across a spectrum of belief: from the evangelical “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren and “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young, to the more broad minded such as Peter Gomes’ “The Good Book,” to Bible-based novels like “Jesus in Egypt” by Ann Rice.

Although a Protestant, I am enjoying “A Prayer Journal,” by Catholic writer Flannery O’Connor, purchased at World Eye for me as a Christmas gift last year. My copies of “Walking the Bible” and “Abraham” by Bruce Feiler purchased at World Eye are a couple of books with insightful views of the Bible from the Jewish perspective. I have even purchased “un-Bibles” at World Eye like “God is Not Great” by Christopher Hitchens and “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins, atheists. But at the moment my favorite religious book from World Eye is the delightful and thought provoking “God Got A Dog” by Cynthia Rylant and Marla Frazee.

I did not see the specific display of books that Darlene Clark mentions in letter published March 31. But I can attest to the excellent religious section at World Eye as well as their very efficient and friendly special ordering of religious books not in stock. Easter is a good time to read a “Good Book” so stop by and find one.
