This was released in 2002 and is very dated, but still a fun read. I used to read Clancy a lot when I traveled for work and spent a lot of time sitting around airports so it's neat to revisit some of his stuff.

Haven't read that, but I'm sure it's good since Lott wrote it!
I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

That book has not aged well... I tried reading it a few years ago, but DNF.

My favorite review:

“If your psychologist recommended this book, get a new psychologist.”
. . . be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien
