Here's to P.I.D. Recently, I lost the ability to listen to my iPod in the car, which got me to pull out my CD collection. Yesterday, I found Back to Back, the second album by P.I.D. and truly a significant part of my early teenage life. I LOVED that tape. It was stolen at some point in my childhood, but I found it on CD a few years later. Read the rest of this entry »
Wisdom Chaser: Finding My Father at 14,000 Feet

I just wanted to drop a quick review of the latest book I just finished: Wisdom Chaser: Finding My Father at 14,000 Feet (affiliate link) If you’re not familiar with Nathan Foster, perhaps you’ve heard of his dad, Richard Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline (affiliate link) and Prayer: Finding the Heart’s True Home (affiliate link) – two of the meatiest books on a close relationship with God I’ve ever read.

Nathan pretty honestly addresses the common struggle of all men, but especially with my generation: our relationships with our fathers. Like Nathan, I’ve had to work through my own father issues, and I have one of the good ones, as does he. As a writer, Nathan sometimes needs some work – the chapters could sometimes dig a little deeper, but honestly, he’s engaging for one simple reason: he’s very honest. When I care about a story as much as I cared about his, I don’t care so much about little technicalities. Besides, I don’t think I’ve got much to brag about when it comes to writing either.

I highly recommend this book to any guy who wants some wisdom on how to learn to bridge that relationship gap with his father.

Thanks, Nathan, for taking the time to put it out there. I’m going to try some of the things I learned from this book – in my own way, of course, since I don’t live near any mountains.
