What is your favorite book (outside of the Bible)? Why?
My life changed forever when I read What’s So Amazing about Grace? By Philip Yancey. Yancey is an amazing writer and storyteller and his book helped me understand that God liked me for who I was.
Star Trek or Star Wars? Why?
Star Wars. Better characters. Less science and philosophy and better storytelling. Also AT-ATs.
