I've read a lot of books this year. I've read quite a few good ones...a few terrible ones...and a very few that stand out in their excellence. One of those is Leif Enger's Peace Like a River. So I'm smiling to see John Piper's review and I'm hoping that his attention to this new American masterpiece will help give it a much wider reading. Put this one on your list for 2009!
(And if you have an Audible.com account, and you should, consider listening to this one. It was a lovely book to have read to me.)
