Why Men Hate Going to Church

Why Men Hate Going to Church

On 4/10 happyhiatt wrote: I read Why Men Hate Going to Church by David Murrow in February. It’s now April, and I’m finally reviewing this book. Besides my usual procrastination, there is a reason for my delay: this book is worth thinking about. I was skeptical at first. I expected this to be nothing but gender stereotyping and excuse-making. ... Book Review: Why Men Hate Going to Church

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door

On 9/22 happyhiatt wrote: I recently read Don’t Check Your Brains as part of the BookSneeze.com review program. An evaluation copy was provided to me at no charge. In the interest of full disclosure, as soon as I finished it, I purchased a copy for our teen Sunday School teachers. This book makes a great introduction to “Christian ...

Unsinkable

Unsinkable

On 5/18 happyhiatt wrote: Nutshell overview: it’s a decent story, told fairly well, but over-hyped. I thought that Unsinkable was going to be the story of a young woman sailing around the world. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t. A full two thirds of the book details her preparation and her life before and after her attempt. You come away from ...

Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life

On 2/24 happyhiatt wrote: When I received this book, I looked at the cover and expected it to be nothing more than a feel-good “Jesus likes you, so be happy!” type book. I was wrong. Lucado doesn’t write this to be a feel-good piece. Instead, it’s designed to confront the apathetic Christian with the blessings and responsibility he has. ...

Transforming Church in Rural America

Transforming Church in Rural America

On 10/11 happyhiatt wrote: There is a sense among many ministers that preaching in a country church is a lot like being on a farm league baseball team. It’s better than nothing, but they are really holding their breath until they get called up to the “big leagues” in the city, where money, resources, and people abound. The biggest ...

The Heavens Proclaim His Glory

The Heavens Proclaim His Glory

On 9/8 happyhiatt wrote: One word review: beautiful. That’s really all there is to it. This book is 176 pages of full-color beauty. Each page is filled with images from the deepest regions of space. You see the planets like you’ve never seen them before. You see representations of stars being born, decaying, and erupting into supernovae. Visually you ... Review: The Heavens Proclaim His Glory

Jesus Manifesto

Jesus Manifesto

On 5/31 happyhiatt wrote: “So what is Christianity? It is Christ. Nothing more. Nothing less. Christianity is not an ideology or a philosophy. Neither is it a new type of morality, social ethic, or worldview. Christianity is the ‘good news’ that beauty, truth, and goodness are found in a person. And true humanity and community are founded on and ... Review: “The Jesus Manifesto”

Captivating (Revised and Expanded)

Captivating (Revised and Expanded)

On 5/10 happyhiatt wrote: Captivating (Revised and Expanded Edition) by John and Stasi Eldridge The subtitle says it all when it comes to this book’s goal: "Unveiling the mystery of a woman’s soul." The book didn’t so much unveil as it did remind. It would be the understatement of the century to say that men and women are different. (Remember ... Book Review: Captivating
