February Book Review

“Memories of Sanfields” by Bethan Lloyd-Jones 

Memories of Sandfields

This was a quick, easy and enjoyable read. Bethan Lloyd-Jones writes about many of her favorite experiences and people from their first ministry. I borrowed this book from a friend, and though I do not plan to add it to my own personal library, am happy for the opportunity to have read it.

“For God and His People: Ulrich Zwingli and the Swiss Reformation” by Jean Henri Merle D’Aubigne’

For God and His People: Ulrich Zwingli and the Swiss Reformation

Wow! I truly enjoyed reading this biography of the great reformer. While it was not as quick and easy a read as the previous book (though not difficult), it was far more beneficial. I looked forward to picking this up each time.  I am ashamed at how little I knew about Zwingli and the Swiss Reformation before reading this, and thankful for the knowledge I now have after reading the book.

This book is taken from a multi-volume history of the Reformation set written back in the 1800’s. At times the foreign sounding names of people and places were a chore to  wade through, but it was well worth my time. If we did not own this book I would definitely add it to our collection.
