The River

The River

On 9/18 April Bradley wrote: Honestly, I found the story to lack cohesion. Without offering spoilers, suffice it to say it never really comes together as a complete story. Maybe I just don’t get it, but The River takes on a personae and there is a white hawk that seems to follow Gabriel. However, it never really quite makes ... Missed the Mark

A Year with Jesus

A Year with Jesus

On 1/13 April Bradley wrote: A Year with Jesus was exactly what I needed to ring in the New Year. I’m a patterns person, and having a devotional book that I can refer to daily throughout a year, starting on day one, meets my need for order. I really like this book. The one page readings are quick and easy, yet they give me a ... Review - A Year with Jesus

Heaven is for Real for Kids

On 11/7 April Bradley wrote: I really wanted to like this book. I probably should read the adult version as well to really get a perspective on the events that happened to this young man. I wish nothing but good for him and his family. The book is very simply written reaching out to its target audience. Each page contains scripture, ... Review - Heaven is Real for Kids

Has God Spoken?

Has God Spoken?

On 9/21 April Bradley wrote: Hanegraaff’s book is very thorough. He clearly knows his subject matter and goes into great depth providing proofs through archaeology, understanding of ancient approaches to literature/translation/copying, etc. What I found, however, is that this level of depth doesn’t make for clarification for ...

Strike It Rich with Pocket Change

Strike It Rich with Pocket Change

On 6/19 April Bradley wrote: I chose Strike it Rich with Pocket Change because my husband loves coin collecting. I was interested in seeing what other aspects of numismatics or coin collecting there are. What a fascinating book! Who knew there were so many coins out there with small blemishes that are worth SO much. Some of ... Strike it Rich with Pocket Change Review

Knitting Knee-Highs

Knitting Knee-Highs

On 5/6 April Bradley wrote: When I received this book, I loved the beautiful patterns for the knee highs. There's nothing as lovely as a warm pair of socks on a chilly day. However, it was immediately apparent that I had bitten off more than my meager skills could chew. So, I asked a friend and much more accomplished knitter what ... Knitting Knee-Highs Review

We Be Big

We Be Big

On 3/17 April Bradley wrote: I was looking to read something different. Not fiction, but fun, more breadth than depth. We Be Big sounded like just the ticket. Whoever Rick and Bubba were, they certainly didn’t take themselves too seriously. I really enjoyed this book! I didn’t get exactly what I was looking for – there ... We Be Big - Review

Couples Who Pray

Couples Who Pray

On 2/28 April Bradley wrote: I’m really on the fence about Couples Who Pray. There are certainly some aspects of the book that I find uplifting and helpful. However, there are other aspects of the book and the authors’ approach that left me wondering. The book is encouragement for starting the 40-Day Prayer Challenge with ...

The Truth About Dating, Love, and Just Being Friends

On 2/14 April Bradley wrote: The Truth About Dating, Love & Just Being Friends was a review opportunity I was excited to take. I have two older children ages 18 and 20, and then I have two younger boys ages 13 and 11. My younger boys love to read.

Fasting

Fasting

On 1/12 April Bradley wrote: Fasting is a ritual that I just don’t hear much about. I have friends who fast, but I can honestly say it hasn’t come up in any church I’ve been in. Interesting that this age’s old practice has been eliminated by many in this century. The author of Fasting, Scot McKnight, points out readily ... Fasting

Seeds of Turmoil

Seeds of Turmoil

On 12/19 April Bradley wrote: This book gave me a lot of food for contemplation. I have not devoted a lot of research time into understanding the trouble in the Middle East and wanted to have more depth in my understanding of the turmoil and its roots. Wright does a convincing job of showing the genealogical impact brought on by ... Seeds of Turmoil - Review

A Year with God

A Year with God

On 11/14 April Bradley wrote: One thing that intrigued me about A Year with God by R. P. Nettelhorst was the concept of using God’s own words in the Old Testament to speak with us throughout the year. While I enjoy the Old Testament, like many Christians, I am much more versed in the New Testament. I did find it interesting that ... A Year with God - Review

Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life

On 10/21 April Bradley wrote: 14What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him?… As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead. James 2:14,26(NIV) The articulate and friendly approach Max uses to lay out our obligation as Christians to serve really ... Faith goes Hand in Hand with Works

The Treasure of God's Word

The Treasure of God's Word

On 10/13 April Bradley wrote: For some, the language of the King James version of the Bible is that of another time and place: confusing and difficult. For others, it is a lyrical tribute to the majestic message the Bible conveys. Whether you like the King James version or not, there is no denying that it is the most well-known ...

The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect

On 9/7 April Bradley wrote: The butterfly effect is a gift book about the importance of realizing each and every person’s affect on the world. Much like when a pebble is dropped into a still pond – the ripples can cross the entire pond. What we do makes a difference! Andrews uses examples from history where a seemingly singular ...

Let's Do Lunch

On 8/11 April Bradley wrote: Let’s Do Lunch Eating all the Calories and Carbs you want to lose weight! By Roger Wilson I was intrigued to read this book as the author, Roger Wilson, claims you can eat what you want and as much of it and still lose weight.  Having been on several diets myself (haven’t we all!), I knew that you ...
