Last week we looked at a few of Jenny Simmons’ favorite things! Every Friday I will be posting a different artist’s favorite things! This week: Sara Groves!
Sara’s favorite things:
1. Beautiful Story by Dwight Colbaugh
2. Frame the Clouds by Christa Wells
3. Downtown Church by Patty Griffin
4. Embracing Your Freedom by Susie Larson
5 .The Book of God by Walter Wangerin
Here’s what she has to say about The Book of God.
I am working through this novelization of the bible with my girlfriends, and it has been so rich! I love the bible, and think that I have a good handle on the events, but the novelization of it brings things to light that I have just read over in the past. On many occasions I have read something and have thought, “Is that really in there?” Upon closer inspection, it is! It is not historical fiction, and it is not a paraphrase. Wangerin stays VERY close to the original, but creatively so, making this a perfect book for someone new to the bible, and especially the Old Testament.
So, in light of all of Sara Groves’ favorite things, I thought I’d post MY favorite Sara Groves video for you to watch. Enjoy!
