Summer Evening

This evening I sat outside on the lanai, drank iced coffee and read a new theology book (thanks, Tim).

The boys were playing with a neighbor(!) in the pool. Five splashing boys.

It was peaceful.

So, what do you think? Do you like it? How far are you? Are you reviewing it?

(Oh, you know how I love theology books!

Have you read "With Reverence and Awe" yet? It's really good.

I will be reviewing it, so I'll hold most of my comments for now. In short, though, I'm finding it edifying and drawing me to worship (as any good theology book ought.) There are some things stylistically (sp?) that I wish were different (less generalizations, more footnotes. . .)

Frame won't be replacing Berkhof as my SysTheo of choice. However, I can see situations in which I'd reference or recommend Frame before Berkhof.

I have also been enjoying Boca Java on ice lately. I'll think of you next time I'm sipping on a glass. *grin*

Well, then I will definitely be looking forward to your review!

How much shorter is it than Berkhof?

How is a lanai different from a deck, porch, patio?

Julana, it's hard to describe a lanai. But it is different from a porch or a deck. Maybe the closest way to describe it would be a screened patio. It's easiest, though, to show you.

Five of the top six pictures here show the lanai:

Ours isn't quite as lavish. . . but still very relaxing. Lanais are especially wonderful in Florida, because they allow for indoor-outdoor living with minimal bugs.
