Book Review: The Power of Knowing God by Kay Arthur

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Kay Arthur Bible studies over the years, but this was the first one I’ve completed.  Let me just say, that the study lived up to it’s reputation–I do feel like I know God more.  There is a great deal of engagement with Scripture and the questions reinforce […]

Book Review: When Work and Family Collide

*This book was previously released as Choosing to Cheat* This is a great, timely book by.  Let’s face it, we live in a society that values productivity above nearly everything else.  Sure, we say we value family, but if most workaholics, er, I mean hard-working people were to develop a flow chart of how they really […]

Book Review: Enemies of the Heart

I always enjoy Andy Stanley’s books, so I wasn’t surprised to find that this one was good too.  If you have read other things by him and don’t connect with his communication and writing styles, then you’ll probably be disappointed here as well.  However, if you have enjoyed other books and teachings by him in […]

Book Review: Soulprint

Soulprint by Mark Batterson is, in a nutshell, about discovering one’s God-given identity and purpose using the story of King David. While the information in the book wasn’t anything spectacularly revelatory, I felt the story of David was told in an interesting and insightful way.  David, though being the youngest and smallest, was still portrayed as […]

Book Review: Living Close to God (When You’re Not Good At It)

I have to say that this book by Gene Edwards was not my favorite.  I hate to say so because I believe that anyone who feels led to write a book about faith and failure and God and getting there is simply being another mouth-piece for the Lord, and that’s probably a good thing.  But […]

Book Review: Lazarus Awakening

I feel a little sheepish for finally getting around to blogging and it’s only a book review. Not that book reviews are bad, I like hearing what other people have to say about what they’ve been reading, especially when they are books on my Want To Read List, but, oh, I don’t know, I feel […]

Book Review: 31 Days of Drawing Near to God

> This is an easy to read daily devotional book by missionary Ruth Myers. As the cover of the book states, it was “previously released as The Satisfied Heart.” As far as daily devotionals go, this was okay. If I’m going to follow a book or teaching of some sort for my daily devotional time, […]

Book Review: Secure Daughters, Confident Sons

> I love to read, but I don’t exactly gravitate toward parenting books. I’ve read some, and they’re okay, but I much prefer other topics. So when it came to choosing my next Blogging for Books selection, I chose this title more out of duty and a sense of parental responsibility rather than desire. As […]

Book Review: The Next Christians

On pages 30 and 31, in response to a conversation Lyons has with a producer from Lionsgate Films he says this: ” … the most profound and unavoidable observation that confronted me as I answered Haley was how significantly Christianity had become divided and incoherent to the average spiritual sojourner. The century-long buildup to this […]

>I can’t believe this is my first post of the year for a couple of reasons: 1. It’s already a week and a half into the year and I’ve failed to post anything until now. 2. This is only because I feel I need to get something out there. 3. I’m still feeling quite uninspired. […]
