There’s something about summer that brings a new inspiration for reading. For me, it is probably the new reading locations; around the campfire, on the back porch or on the beach, which add to the enjoyment.
Here are a few that have crossed my shelf the last few months:

Native: Identity, Belonging, and Rediscoving God by Kairlin Curtice (3 stars)

She is a great storyteller, but I would have loved to hear more from her about how the Gospel speaks into her indigenous heritage and faith.
