God of the Underdogs

God of the Underdogs

On 12/10 Writer Rani wrote: God of the Underdogs, by Matt Keller, was well written and researched. I will tell you right away what I did not like so I can share what I liked. I know that many people have smartphones, so they could scan the code, but I do not. I do not see the use of using a phone with a book. There was also ...

American Phoenix

American Phoenix

On 9/4 Writer Rani wrote: My Thoughts- I have never known much about John Quincy and Louisa Adams or the War of 1812, but I certainly learned a lot when I read American Phoenix, by Jane Hampton Cook. I enjoyed Cook's easy to read writing style and the use of all the quotes from their diaries. The quotes helped make the book ... American Phoenix by Jane Hampton Cook (Review)

The Passionate Mom

The Passionate Mom

On 6/28 Writer Rani wrote: There have been many parenting books written, but I think, The Passionate Mom, is one of the best ones I have ever read. It was well written and easy to read. It was interesting that Susan Merrill found the book of Nehemiah, in the Bible, to parallel that of a passionate mother. I liked the list of ... The Passionate Mom by Susan Merrill (Review)

God's Not Dead

On 4/24 Writer Rani wrote: God’s Not Dead, by Rice Broocks, had a lot of potential, but fell short in my eyes. I was excited when I read the description of this book. I thought I would learn a lot and have an interesting book to pass onto others, so we would know how to share how God is still alive in our world. I was disappointed. ...

Broken Wings

Broken Wings

On 3/3 Writer Rani wrote: This is the second book in The Angel Eyes Trilogy and the only one I have read. I would recommend reading the other book first, because I feel like I missed out on some important facts. I thought it was interesting that author, Shannon Dittemore included a halo that also worked as a bracelet and a ... Broken Wings by Shannon Dittemore

Call of A Coward

Call of A Coward

On 12/6 Writer Rani wrote: I have often thought about what life would be like if our family were missionaries. Marcia Moston has helped me see what life as a reluctant missionary is like. It may be difficult, but as time goes by life gets better. I enjoyed the detail and how much God was truly involved in the Mostons’ life. ...

On 11/13 Writer Rani wrote: I really enjoyed reading this book and I took lots of notes, so I can begin to figure out what my OBT is.

The Reason

The Reason

On 10/4 Writer Rani wrote: I'm not sure what to think about this book. I thought this book was creepy, in both a good way and a bad way. It seemed to vary from one part of the book to another. It's a feeling I can't really explain. I wasn't really sure about the character of Kenneth. I didn't think it was right to have a character ... The Reason by William Sirls

Jackson

Jackson

On 9/4 Writer Rani wrote: I liked this book better than some of the other books I have read in the series, because of the attention to using quotes from Andrew Jackson and the people he knew during his lifetime. It was especially nice that Paul Vickery mentioned it in the prologue. That was when I knew that I was going to enjoy ... Jackson: The Iron-Willed Commander by Paul Vickery

On 7/12 Writer Rani wrote: This book is a must read for any man who may be struggling with sexual problems or may know someone who is. As a wife, I don’t think I would give it to my husband if there was not a solid relationship. There are many parts in this book that could help many with more than just sexual struggles. I ...

On 6/6 Writer Rani wrote: This book was great. I actually fell in love with the book in the first couple of chapters and it made me want to keep reading and never put the book down.

On 1/12 Writer Rani wrote: I thought this book was very interesting. Some of it was long and boring, but I can understand if there is not a lot of information about his daily life.

No He Can't

On 6/6 Writer Rani wrote: Well for starters, let me say, WOW. There certainly is a lot more to President Obama than I thought there was. I knew about the economic bailouts and the healthcare package, but this book has shown me there is so much more to President Obama’s morals and loyalties. Chapter fourteen: “Re-creating ...

On 5/11 Writer Rani wrote: I had a difficult time getting into this book. I thought the book was well written, but the flow and writing style was not enough to capture my undivided attention.

A Conversation with God

On 4/10 Writer Rani wrote: I thought this book was well researched and written. There were several areas I did not agree on. One was going to heaven after you die. The other was about what happens in hell. Considering there are many different ways to view the Bible, having only 2 differences was remarkable to me. God and ...

On 12/30 Writer Rani wrote: After I read the book I wondered why Thomas Nelson published this book as it did not seem Christian and there were only a couple of questions in the reading group guide that dealt with morals.
