An Angel by Her Side

An Angel by Her Side

On 3/23 herdingcats wrote: I liked this story a lot and it kept me captivated, but I did not like the parts with the angel and daemon invisibly talking to the people (that part was written in italics.) I think that the point could have been made in a different way without angels or daemons talking to people. It is a nice Amish ... An Angel by Her Side by Ruth Reid

Threads of Grace

Threads of Grace

On 2/21 herdingcats wrote: I enjoyed this Amish romance.  It is more than a romance, including mystery and the Lord's healing work.  Grace has fled after her abusive husband died, only to be followed by his equally evil brother.  In order to save her autistic son from his Uncle, she marries handsome Seth Wyse, who ...

Spirit Fighter

Spirit Fighter

On 4/22 herdingcats wrote: This is a fantasy story for Christian kids. I think it is written to appeal to those parents who don't like the Harry Potter type books because they believe anything about witchcraft is evil and who don't like the Percy Jackson books because they are about the Greek (false)gods.  In this book, instead ...

The Grace Effect

The Grace Effect

On 12/8 herdingcats wrote: I felt like this book was telling two different stories. The author begins by letting us know that he is friends with Christopher Hitchens and that they discuss and debate Christianity vs. athiesm together. Then, he goes on to tell the story of his family adopting a little girl from an orphanage in ... Interesting adoption story, not much support for the "Grace Effect",

Has God Spoken?

On 10/5 herdingcats wrote: I had such high hopes for this book. The title sounds so promising. Especially the subtitle - "Proof of the Bible's Divine Inspiration". I was excited to read it and find out what the proof was. Instead, I found the book to be SAD. It is a S upercilious A rrogant D iatribe If you like acronyms, ... SAD
