With Black History Month near the end of this year, I want to note a book I think everyone should read. Every time I open The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, I end up reading this moving autobiography again. He tells his story from his earliest memory as a little slave boy up through his emancipation and spokesperson for the equality of all people. There are people today who present his speeches; and I wonder if they are as stirring as he must have been. At some of the public abolitionist gatherings when he spoke, there were people who did not believe he had been a slave; he was so eloquent and intelligent. As I read his story, I feel his intense sense of injustice - is it even possible to really feel the pain of those in bondage? Through Douglass’ honest words, I think I see some of his suffering and yearning for more.
After Frederick Douglass became a free man, he knew trials were not over; and he could not be silent. He began the first black newspaper, The North Star. Douglass’ words to the Christians of that day also speak to believers today, sharply challenging their positions and professions of faith.
Douglass is mentioned and highlighted in many books that I’ve enjoyed reading. But you can get his complete Narrative for just a couple of dollars in a Dover paperback – as long as these are published, I’ll keep them in the store.

Like many of us, Peter and his wife awoke to see the “sharp edges of [his] reality rubbed smooth by an unseen hand…the creek had disappeared behind a wall of white, and the sky had indeed fallen.”
This fun and easy read takes us through a young father’s day off work – because of the surprisingly deep snow – while he runs errands, worrying some about that job and the meaning of his life.
