Joni and Ken

Joni and Ken

On 7/8 Leanna wrote: Joni & Ken: An Untold Love Story I have always wondered about Joni Eareckson Tada's personal life, the “behind the scenes” of a quadraplegic, so naturally I snatched up the opportunity to read this book. It tells of Joni & Ken's beautiful romance story, and the difficulties that they faced ... Joni & Ken

On 3/1 Leanna wrote: I finished reading this over a month ago, so I guess it’s high time I write the book review!I picked out this book, not because I’m dealing with grief or the loss of a loved one, but to be able to sympathize with and help friends who are. But I must say I was sadly disappointed in this book. There ... Grieving God's Way Book Review

Grace

Grace

On 11/9 Leanna wrote: "Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine" was my first Max Lucado book. My overall impression of him was exactly what I had heard about him: typically good content and an easy read. A VERY easy read. Lucado touches on several aspects of grace in a Christian's life, usually starting each ... Grace

Twelve Unlikely Heroes

Twelve Unlikely Heroes

On 9/10 Leanna wrote:  I found “Twelve Unlikely Heroes” by John MacArthur to be a little blah. I didn’t feel like he was telling me anything new about these characters from the Bible. He spent more time re-telling what Scripture already says about each one than he did digging up helpful insights or examples to ... Twelve Unlikely Heroes

Jackson

Jackson

On 7/30 Leanna wrote: I’ve always loved history, but I didn’t know a lot about Andrew Jackson til recently, and this book fixed that. I was very surprised how engaging it was. I didn’t want to put it down once I got into it. Towards the end the pace slackened, but still a great book. Author Paul Vickery does a great ... The Iron-Willed Commander

Father Hunger

Father Hunger

On 6/18 Leanna wrote: With Father's Day just past us, I thought it fitting to post a review of "Father Hunger", by Douglas Wilson. Fatherhood is a role often abused or left vacant in our world today, and Wilson is not afraid to tell you what's what. “Father Hunger” is much more than a book on how to be a good dad. In ...

The Truth About Forgiveness

On 5/22 Leanna wrote:  Like the other two books in “The Truth About” series by John MacArthur, this one is well-written and thought-provoking, though not a heavy read.MacArthur writes a gentle yet firm reminder of why we need God’s forgiveness, why God wants and acts to forgive, and why there’s nothing we can ...

The Truth About the Lordship of Christ

The Truth About the Lordship of Christ

On 5/5 Leanna wrote: Rich content, yet still easy to read. John MacArthur addresses the often-ignored issue of Christ not only being a believer’s Savior, but their Lord. Beginning with a look at God’s sovereignty over everything in the universe, it’s easy to see that our God wouldn’t be great if he wasn’t sovereign. ... The Truth About the Lordship of Christ

On 4/20 Leanna wrote: First, let me say, this is a great book! Whether a baby Christian or a believer of 50+ years, this book is for you! In the Christian circle, ‘grace’ has become such a common term thrown around that often we miss its significance and power. In his book “The Truth About Grace”, John MacArthur ...

On 3/6 Leanna wrote: Having signed up for Hillsdale College's Constitution 101 session, I was thrilled to see this book by Hillsdale's President Larry Arnn available on Booksneeze.com. I was expecting it to be a hard, slow read because of the topic, but was pleasantly surprised to get through it quickly. A very interesting ... The Founders' Key

Tyndale

Tyndale

On 1/9 Leanna wrote: I just loved David Teem’s new book, “Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God an English Voice”. My pastor sparked my interest in Tyndale, and I’ve discovered that he really is an amazing yet neglected man in history. I’ve never read a book on William Tyndale before, but have heard lots about him and ... Tyndale

December 1941

December 1941

On 12/8 Leanna wrote: Because December 7th is “a date that will live in infamy”, December of 1941 is a month that warrants much detailed study. I found Craig Shirley’s book “December 1941” to be an excellent resource for just such study. It’s the only book of its kind, going beyond the attack on Pearl Harbor to ... December 1941

Thunder Dog

Thunder Dog

On 8/19 Leanna wrote: Reading "Thunder Dog" by Michael Hingson was like seeing through the eyes of a blind man. At first glance, you think the story is just about a guide dog, Roselle, who safely leads his master down 78 flights of stairs in the World Trade Center and out to safety on the morning of September 11, 2001. But ... Thunder Dog

On 6/6 Leanna wrote: “No He Can’t” by Kevin McCullough is both informative and engaging, appropriate for readers in all stages of life, whether politically inclined or not.
