New (Old) Author: Clovis G. Chappell

Someone gifted me with two books published in the 1930’s, both by Clovis G. Chappell. First of all, what a great name. Second of all, great books so far. I’m still working through his book on The Lord’s Prayer — slowly, while taking notes. Here’s one inspiring excerpt:

Mmmm. Convicting.

I love reading the words of those who have gone before us — they have nothing to prove yet introduce the possibilities of undiscovered treasures in their wake.

The other book, Faces of the Cross, chronicles the final hours of Jesus’ earthly ministry from the perspective of those who were present at or near the crucifixion. Good stuff.

RadScore: 3 bookends.

About radamdavidson

When I'm not blogging, I'm hanging out with my family, pastoring a church, or listening to vinyl.
