The Organic God

The Organic God

On 9/6 Pidjen wrote: I truly wanted to love this book, simply because of the beautiful title. I was expecting a book that would bring me closer to God by re-introducing me to God’s foundational, “grassroots” love and magnificence. I was expecting a “God in all things” type of book. Instead, this book reads more ... A Memoir

The Voice Bible

The Voice Bible

On 9/19 Pidjen wrote: I previously reviewed The Voice Bible translation in just its New Testament form, but I was hoping to get a better grasp of my feelings on the translation by also checking out the Old Testament portion. Please note that I am not reviewing the actual Bible in this review, but rather am just reviewing ... Missing the Mystery

The Voice New Testament: Revised & Updated

The Voice New Testament: Revised & Updated

On 6/24 Pidjen wrote: I love having various translations of the Bible around. I enjoy comparing them, and will pick up a different version, depending on my mood (the more serious my mood, the more traditional the translation I’ll gravitate toward). I was excited to review this translation, because the publisher stresses ... Very Nice, Except For the Italicized Additions

Then Sings My Soul Book 3

Then Sings My Soul Book 3

On 3/3 Pidjen wrote: I’ve loved each installment of the “Then Sings My Soul” series, but this volume, the final book of the series, is definitely my favorite. In each book, Robert J. Morgan packs in the most wonderful hymns, both the famous and the not-so-famous. The sheet music for each hymn is laid out side-by-side ... The Best of the Series!

Daily Gifts of Grace

Daily Gifts of Grace

On 1/4 Pidjen wrote: “Daily Gifts of Grace” is one of the prettiest, most down-to-earth women’s devotionals I’ve ever seen. The cover is hard-bound, with a magnetic flap closure. The colors and detail in the art are so delicate and beautiful. It’s just ideal for gift-giving. Each daily devotional, written by one ... A Beautiful Gift for Any Woman

Where Has Oprah Taken Us?

Where Has Oprah Taken Us?

On 10/9 Pidjen wrote: Sometimes I think that, were it not for famous people, some authors would have nothing to write about. But, then again, I suppose every author is writing about someone. Even if that someone is fictional, that character still holds traits and characteristics of someone real in the life of the author. ... An Expose' Rather Than a Biography

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

On 9/6 Pidjen wrote: Ian Morgan Cron's memoir "Jesus, My Father, the CIA and Me...A Memoir of Sorts" is an insightful and moving tale of a boy growing up in an alcoholic home. Cron calls his book "A Memoir of Sorts" because he indicates that some of the story may not literally be what happened. However, the story he tells ... A Heartwarming, Entertaining Memoir

Same Life, New Story

Same Life, New Story

On 5/30 Pidjen wrote: Although this book didn't grasp my attention immediately, as I continued reading, "Same Life, New Story" became more and more interesting and encouraging. Jan Silvious uses stories of women in the Bible (such as Deborah, Ruth, Rahab and Abigail, among others), as well as her own personal stories and ... Review: Same Life, New Story by Jan Silvious

Slave

Slave

On 1/25 Pidjen wrote: "Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ" is not typical of the books I normally read. I sway more toward Christian non-fiction geared toward a female audience. This book is not geared toward either gender. It does not contain any "warm fuzzies". In fact, I'd say that, with the exception ... Review: Slave by John MacArthur

Then Sings My Soul Special Edition

On 12/3 Pidjen wrote: "Then Sings My Soul Special Edition" is a gorgeous book for gift-giving. The cover art is just beautiful, and the book is made of heavy-duty paper, giving it such a high-quality feel, even though it's a soft-cover book! The cover has "French flaps", which the reader can use as bookmarks. The edges of ... Review: Then Sings My Soul (Special Edition) by Robert J. Morgan

Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World (Trade Paper)

On 10/20 Pidjen wrote: In “Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World”, Dr. David Jeremiah explains how Christians can (and should) live in hope and expectation in today‘s chaotic world, rather than in fear, doubt or dread. In each chapter, Dr. Jeremiah describes a characteristic or habit that is essential for Christians ... Review: Living With Confidence in a Chaotic World by Dr. David Jeremiah

Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life

On 9/10 Pidjen wrote: "Out Live Your Life" has been such an encouragement to me. There are a lot of books out right now about how Christians need to practice what we preach, how we need to “get down in the trenches”, so to speak. I agree with this philosophy, and have tried to read books with this message. However, I’ve ... Review: Out Live Your Life by Max Lucado

The Prophecy Answer Book

The Prophecy Answer Book

On 6/30 Pidjen wrote: When I received "The Prophecy Answer Book" in the mail, I will admit I was taken aback by the size. It is actually a pocket size, about six inches by four inches, and the text font is quite small, too small for me to read comfortably. The book is in the form of questions, with Dr. Jeremiah’s answers ...
