The Truth Matters

I just finished Bruce Bartlett’s “The Truth Matters” It is a handy little reference guide with many insights gleaned from a lifetime of reporting. The last few pages lists many resources with their links so that you can hone in on what you are checking out as true. It will fit in your cargo pants pocket or purse and at the ready if you are tempted to go with what seems too good to be true. In these ‘fake new’ days it is like being vaccinated against a virus that is proving deadly these days. You can read it in a hurry as he has chapters a few pages long on each flash point of the day. Worth the few bucks to own.

Immortal Diamond

If you only have time for one book this year please consider Richard Rohr’s newest book Immortal Diamond. This is a work that is so approachable you will find yourself saying “yes, yes” on almost every page. As the back cover says “This book is the ripe ftuit of a life couragously and honestly lived. Such profound wisdom conveyed with such elegant simplicity!” It will also make a wonder filled gift for some special in your life.
