Nearing Home

Nearing Home

On 4/6 donyes wrote: Throughout my walk with Christ I have heard people tell me that the Christian life is a marathon not a sprint. But I always had a little kickback when I heard such statements, because even in a marathon you eventually stop running. Well I believe Billy Graham is a man who never stopped running, and will ...

The Book of Man

The Book of Man

On 11/30 donyes wrote: Content was great. Attention holding power of the book not so great. I was bored. At the same time I agreed with several points Bennett addresses throughout the book. Great read for a young man. Not horrible, just not going to be a New York Best Seller either. He did do an excellent job of shaping the ... the Man Book

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

On 7/14 donyes wrote: Ian Cron’s “Jesus, The Cia, My Father and Me: A Memoir of Sorts” will emotionally grip you! He navigates the reader through his life’s adventure. Beginning with his childhood, which to my amazement he recalls with great clarity. He then takes the reader through his teenage years on into adulthood. ... Make it a Memoir

Put Your Dream to the Test

Put Your Dream to the Test

On 5/15 donyes wrote: Perhaps one of Maxwell’s most applicable books I’ve read. Not that all his books on leadership aren’t applicable, but not everyone is a leader in any given organization. But everyone has a dream, God created us to dream, He puts dreams in our hearts. Now whether or not we’re willing to share ... Dust the Dust Off Your Dream

Beyond Talent

Beyond Talent

On 4/24 donyes wrote: In a world that celebrates athletic talent, music talent, and acting talent it was a breath of fresh air to read a Maxwell book that ensures us that it is much more than just talent. I've often felt that several of Maxwell's books were just re-titled and re-labeled with a couple new points on leadership. ... Talent Never Trumps

The Power-Based Life

The Power-Based Life

On 1/8 donyes wrote: Mike Flynt had credibility in writing this book. And he lays that credibility throughout the pages of this book as he gives personal stories and background as to how he has overcome odds, realized his own life's goals and dreams, and grown in his walk with the Lord. This book talks about several areas ... Realizing Life's Goals

Slave

Slave

On 12/14 donyes wrote: Few other authors that I've read saturate their writing in as much Scripture as John MacArthur does. From giving the reader the original meaning to either Hebrew or Greek words, to helping the reader understand the context in each passage, MacArthur does a great job of making the Bible clear and precise. ...

On 12/4 donyes wrote: Ove the past 7 years I have tried several devotionals that walk you through the Bible in a Year, from Bruce Wilkinson's Closer Walk devotionals to Phil Joel's Deliberate People, to a few different devotionals in between.

On This Day in Christian History

On 11/19 donyes wrote: The format of this book quickly reminded me of my upmost for His Highest written by Oswald Chambers. What I mean is that regardless of what day of the year it is, or if you even missed a few days you can pick it right according to what date in the year it may be.

Outlive Your Life

Outlive Your Life

On 10/28 donyes wrote: One of the things I love about Max Lucado and all of his books is that he is always so encouraging.

The Grace of God

On 10/19 donyes wrote: Andy Stanley just has a way of making things much simpler to understand. I've always been a fan of his writing and the way he can take what could be complex topics and make them much simpler for the reader to understand.

The Least Among You (DVD)

The Least Among You (DVD)

On 10/5 donyes wrote: The story was great, the way it was told not so much. The character development was weak, it felt scattered, and very random at times. However, the deeper meaning and message was powerful. As is any story of struggle and redemption. I will say I was disappointed with the overall production, I felt it ... Disappointed
