Book Review - Ten P's in a Pod

Ten P's in a Pod

A Million-Mile Journal of the Arnold Pent Family
By: Arnold Pent III

Book Review

Over a decade ago, I travelled with my wife and kids to churches around the country for around 100,000 miles. So, it was somewhat interesting to read Arnold Pent's account of their travels. His writing style is matter-of-fact with quite a bit of dry humor thrown in. For me, the book was interesting for the first several chapters, and then after that, not so much. The context this family ministered in is worlds away from where we live today in America. Also, even during the time they did minister, they were so much different than most American families. I wonder if the people who would be most interested in this book are those who knew the family or who have never travelled like that before.

The standout benefit of the book is reading how well they knew the Bible. I think it would encourage most of us that there is more we can do in this way.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
