Thinking Outside the Box

When I was younger, I thought I was obligated to like all the Christian songs I heard. I wondered what was wrong with me when this liking didn't come. This bothered me for years.

Review: War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

As you may have noticed, my book reviews have been less frequent as of late. The last three months I've been doing some hardcore reading.
