New in the Church Library: Learning From My Father

To me, it seems unusual to have a book of faith-related reflections written by a lawyer and business executive. But Learning from my Father; Lessons on Life and Faith, by David Lawther Johnson (248 J) is such a book.

After his father’s death, he retrieved letters his father (a Presbyterian minister) had sent to him over the years and wove them into eight lessons, such as Beginning with Belief, Riddled by Evil, and The Need for a Good Witness.

Radio host Krista Tippet praises it as “at once an affirmation of tradition and a call to trust the vitality of the tradition to meet all the complexity of unfolding life in this world.”
