L.L. Barkat

Yes, I'm a couple of days early with my November author interviews, but my writing friend L.L. Barkat's book Stone Crossings is being reviewed at InCourageme. There's also doing a giveaway of the book there. You can read the review here: Review at InCourageme.

L.L. Barkat is the author of Stone Crossings: Finding Grace in Hard and Hidden Places, a spiritual memoir/Christian living book (InterVarsity Press). Says author Don Everts, “Barkat’s courageous, unblinking honesty is a gift.” And theologian Scot McKnight has said, “The only writer I know quite like Barkat is Eugene Peterson.” She is Managing Editor and culture columnist for HighCallingBlogs, Staff Writer for International Arts Movement’s Curator Magazine, and is currently engaged in an art pilgrimage of sorts. She blogs at Seedlings in Stone. You can follow her on Twitter at @llbarkat.

I met L.L. through a blog I read several years ago. Sadly, I don't remember which one, but I was drawn to L.L.'s blog and began to read it avidly. When I knew I would be attending Mt. Hermon in 2008, I discovered she would be doing one of the classes and I was finally able to meet her. What a special lady.
