You'll Get Through This

On 9/23 Tony Brackemyre wrote: Several years ago I remained pretty diligent at reading any book Max Lucado wrote. I remember titles like Six Hours One Friday and He Still Move Stones among others. When I added his latest, You’ll Get Through This, to my Kindle, I was somewhat in awe of the number of books Lucado has written. Yet ... You'll Get Through This

Jesus Is

Jesus Is

On 4/1 Tony Brackemyre wrote: Along with a cool title (and a cool book cover), Judah Smith’s latest book was a good read. While I don’t think he really said anything brand new, he does write about Jesus in a fresh way to remind us of not only of who Jesus is, but how He looks at us. I appreciated Smith’s transparency about ... Jesus Is _____________________________

On 12/3 Tony Brackemyre wrote: Red Letter Revolution is probably one of the most interesting books that I have read this year.

On 10/29 Tony Brackemyre wrote: My mom passed on the book Heaven is for Real after she read it and it was also the first e-book I bought for my wife when she got an eReader. While a book about people who go to heaven and return to tell about it is met with skepticism, I enjoyed reading this book. One of the things that I appreciated ... Heaven Changes Everything review

Surfing for God

Surfing for God

On 8/17 Tony Brackemyre wrote: A hundred years ago, G.K. Chesterton wrote, “Every time a man knocks on a brothel door, he is really searching for God.” That summarizes well the premise of author Michael John Cusick in his book Surfing For God. The book is an honest and open look at a problem with which so many men face. Cusick ... Surfing for God - a review
