Books

Two days ago I went to visit Peter and Susan Hoover at the Rocky Cape Christian Community  (the Hutterite community I mentioned in a previous post) a 20 minute drive from here.  Peter had mentioned in one of his newsletter emails of a recently written book about the life of Susan's mother, and that they had some copies available, so I went to pick one up.

You can read some info about the book here.





Peter and Susan also lent me a well read copy of the book below because I mentioned I had just finished reading another book by Margaret Epp (The Earth is Round) and had really enjoyed it.  This is the book I am reading now....



And they also gave me these books below.  I have read some other David Bercot books and find them very interesting and challenging....




And there was a lady visiting there for a week from a community in New Zealand who they wanted me to meet...Jeanette Bagrie.  She and her husband started a christian community, Drury Church,  just outside Auckland in New Zealand nearly 20 years ago.  She had some of their books that they had written which she gave me.  We also exchanged contact details to keep in touch.



So I went to pick up one book and came home with eight!!!!

  1. These books sound interesting. I checked our local library website and they have one Margaret Epp and several David Bercot books, so I will check them out and give them a whirl!
