In his book The Amusings of a Missionary, author Ken Board takes eveyday life happenings and turns them into spiritual learning experience. He takes the humorous parts of life as well as the more serious parts and gives food for thought. Board uses scripture to each application also. Most of the stories are just over one page so they are quick to read and think on. I loved the way he uses humor and his application to each every day situation. Board draws from his own experiences in mission work in Japan. Couldn't ask for a better life application book than The Amusings of a Missionary.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
