The Third Day of Christmas

 John 1:3-5 "Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're enjoying these Christmas posts.  Today is number three.  Good books to give for several people types.

The Artist:  Art for God's Sake by Phillip Ryken, or Francis Schaeffer's Art and the Bible.

The Outdoor Enthusiast:  If young, a Jim Kjelgaard book (preferably A Nose for Trouble and/or its sequel) or Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransom. Another good one is The Birds Our Teachers by John Stott.

The Musician:  I am not one (sniff and sigh), but if I was, this is the book I would want. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Music Composition.  My friend Kate is a musician, and she says this book is very useful.  

The Historian: A Patriot's History of the United States.  I could go on and on about this book.  Balanced, honest, details (but not too many), timelines, connecting the dots and the reasons behind events.  Yes.

The Classical Person:  Any of the Penguin Classics. These clothbound books are gor-ge-ous.
