Edit

Thanks for all the comments on my previous post. I think I am going to take all the advice, in one way or another! I have decided to keep reading "Heaven", but to skim it for the next 10 chapters or so. If it doesn't get any better, than I will put it away for good.

As for the Piper book, I have decided to shelve that one for the time being. I can always pick it up again when I need the message (that is, when I'm struggling to desire God) or lend it to a friend who may need it.

Sometimes you know the right answer, but you just need someone to validate that it is ok! Thanks everyone!

How far are you in "Heaven"?

Chapter 12 is the last one I finished. I haven't picked it up all week.

I thought it got better right before chapter 20. :)

Honey, I feel your pain. I think it's good to push on to a certain point to see if it improves, but then after that, it's cool to shelf it.

What are you reading now? I'm enjoying "Fearlessly Feminine" by Jani Ortland. It is required reading for my "Embracing Femininity" class, but enjoyable to read.

Donette,
Thanks for the tip about the Jesus Storybook Bible. Our Bible book store had a 50% sale on it and I bought 3. We are going to start it tonight. Thanks for the tip! Love Ya!
