Reviews by Kenneth Campbell
On 11/26 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Insights: This isn’t like most study Bibles. You won’t get study notes on every page, but you get little articles on doctrine, parable commentaries, devotions, and charts. In total there are 264 features to this Bible. Which sounds like a lot, but mixed within 1500 pages, it doesn’t come across ... NIV Understand the Faith Study Bible
On 11/14 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Sally Lloyd-Jones, daughter of Martin Lloyd-Jones, has come out with a beautiful book on the story of God. A lot of the time Christians don’t look at the Bible as it is: a story. The Bible should set up our worldview, or meta-narrative, but if we only look at the Bible as a bunch of little stories ... This is the non-illustrated version of “Jesus Storybook Bible.”
On 11/3 Kenneth Campbell wrote: “This is for you if you want your marriage to thrive, not simply survive.” As corny and overused this expression is, it fits well at the end of the introduction. Today we have millions of boy trying lead their wives in marriage. We don’t have great marriages or kids and this is a product of poor ... Wonderful, Practical, and Funny
On 11/3 Kenneth Campbell wrote: John MacArthur is a machine. From his preaching to his writing we see how the Scriptures come to life and give us life through Him. He is always producing materials and resources for the body of Christ. John has written many books that have impacted me and I was really happy I got Parables because it ... Wonderfully Pastoral
On 10/19 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Winston Churchill is known in most parts of the Western world. You can ask almost anyone if they have heard of him, and they will say they have. However, most people who know who he is, have no idea what he did, where he was from, or what time period he was from. He is a famous man that not many people ... Churchill
On 10/10 Kenneth Campbell wrote: When you were a kid, everything was new to you. Whether it be the worms under first base or the lamp your grandmother had that turned on when you touched it. The world amazed you. Everything was simply oozing with excitement and wonder. But, as we grew up, we lost that. We lost that childlike wonder. ... It's Not What You Think
On 9/7 Kenneth Campbell wrote: When I first got this study Bible, I didn’t think anything of it. I get a lot of them. Most are pretty underwhelming. On top of that, I’m an ESV guy, so a Study Bible that is NIV and titled after the publisher “Zondervan” just seemed corny to me. So, I didn’t expect much. When it arrived, ... NIV Zondervan Study Bible
On 8/12 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Are you looking for a great little way to teach your little one words and Bible stories? Then you came to the right place!

On 8/12 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Did you ever think about what nights looks like on the ark? Me either! But I bet young children wander about those types of things.

On 7/25 Kenneth Campbell wrote: There are so many kid’s book these days. I have received many of them and most of them just aren’t that great.

On 7/25 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Then with the actual devotions we see some good things. I’m happy that this can be in the hands of a lot of men to encourage them in their walk. I think there are a lot of resources like this, that aren’t in a Bible that are probably better. But, if you are looking for a Bible and Devotional, this ... Dad's Devotional Bible
On 7/25 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Eric Metaxes, a number of years ago wrote Bonhoeffer. It was a wonderful biography that led many people further in their faith, and led me to read my Bible more and more. Biographies as a whole are great resources for the Body of Christ to motivate us towards holiness by looking at role models in the ... Bonhoeffer - Student Edition
On 6/5 Kenneth Campbell wrote: I love Jennie Allen. I think for a lot of people, not just women, she resonates with. In her writings I definitely see that at times it is targeted towards women, but even as a man the truth that she writes about comes across. This book is 1) beautiful, 2) easy to read, and 3) relevant. I only ask that ... Anything by Jennie Allen

On 5/18 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Throughout the book they lay out the main stories of the Bible to help any reader get a grasp of the Bible. They used the NIrV translation, which from my experience is a great translation for children. The use large excerpts from the Bible to string together the Bible narrative into one story. This ... The Story for Kids
On 4/18 Kenneth Campbell wrote: But in all honesty, you don’t need these to be great leaders. Some of you already are great leaders. But these books will help some of you to become wonderful leaders and help refine some of you who are already great.

On 2/24 Kenneth Campbell wrote: The NIV Proclamation Bible has on it’s from cover a quote from Tim Keller, “There are many Study Bibles, but none better.” This, my readers, is one of the few times I will disagree with Tim Keller. The NIV Proclamation Bible isn’t bad. I will start off with that because I feel like my first ... Nothing Wonderful
On 2/7 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Jesus says that if you are a luke-warm “Christian” he is going to spit you right of his mouth. That doesn’t sound like a lot of fun, especially if we take that passage in revelation literally. Christianity isn’t about pretending. It’s not about saying you are something and not acting like it. ... Jesus Swagger by Jarrid Wilson
On 1/28 Kenneth Campbell wrote: The last few reviews I have done were for the “Little Bunny Bible” and the “Little Chick’s Bible.” Sadly, they both failed all of my expectations. I felt the illustrations were nice but the stories were quick and seemed like the focus was on rhyming over Jesus. But now, the Tiny Bear’s Bible ... REDEEMED!
On 1/20 Kenneth Campbell wrote: The Little Bunny Bible is a cute little plush “Bible.” It claims to allow “little ones learn about God’s love and faithfulness in stories from the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.” It does this by giving us three stories from the Old Testament and 4 stories from the New.

On 11/14 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Ok, I’ll be honest.

On 10/28 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Ok, the fun part. What I really liked about this book was that it was super helpful for first time Bible Dictionary owners. I was able to open the first few pages and it showed me, in a step-by-step tutorial, how to use it. I was widely impressed. Just for that I would consider getting it. So if you ... Great for a lot of different people!
On 10/17 Kenneth Campbell wrote: I love the idea of these Bibles. Read the Bible in a year, no bad feelings if you fall behind, and some nice things to do for devotionals every day too, I love the idea. I really which I could follow through with it.

On 10/7 Kenneth Campbell wrote: This Study Bible is really cool. From the first moment I got it, I loved the high quality of paper and the intensive notes. It is a beautiful piece that is very well put together. It has been quite durable. I liked the front cover design, as well. After digging into the study sections I was impressed ... NIV First Century Study Bible
On 9/10 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Okay, I know what you’re thinking, “How to Pick Up a Stripper? Really? No…” That’s a valid thought because the book isn’t about picking up strippers in the way most people think. Todd and Erin Stevens help run a church specifically for people who have been converted from the strip clubs or ... A Good Book
On 8/29 Kenneth Campbell wrote: The Spiritual Renewal Bible is a designed for those who want to know how to live a Christ-like life in this day in age.

A Great Bible For Most Christians
On 8/6 Kenneth Campbell wrote: The Jesus Code is a really cool little devotion that ask 50+ questions and gives answers for each of them.

On 7/20 Kenneth Campbell wrote: What I really liked about this book was the way he wrote. It opened my mind to see and think about the Christian walk. Throughout the book Knisely shares with us his walk of faith, all the while, making it easy for us to relate it to our own. As you read you can look at your walk and be excited about ... This is Something Different
On 7/15 Kenneth Campbell wrote: The physical Bible itself is really nice. The pages are durable and the font is a good size. It's a paperback which is nice, but it looks like one of those "classics" from Barns and Nobles that are just HUGE and have the real little font. The binding is nice though. It does look strangely large, but ... A Great Bible!
On 7/3 Kenneth Campbell wrote: The Integrated Study Bible is a new way to study the Bible. It arranges the Scriptures chronologically, so when you are reading through, let’s say, Acts; the epistles will show up with Paul’s journeys. It may not seem like much a change in the New Testament, but when you start reading the Old Testament ... Cool Bible - not great for study.
On 6/2 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Work is a subject that is starting to come back into the vocabulary of the Church. For far too long we had the Church and everything else. We had Christian things and secular things. A lot of people think that you have spiritual things, like reading your Bible and going to Church, and then you have secular ... God desires us to do good then it is important to know how to do good
On 5/15 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Warren made us feel at home in his writing by including personal stories and emails. You really got to know this man by the end. I really enjoyed the home-town feel this book had. It didn’t feel like it was a war biography, but a person’s biography while he was at war. I hope that makes sense. What ... No Place to Hide
On 5/12 Kenneth Campbell wrote: I liked the book, but it wasn’t great. I found it to be drawn out and not practical enough for me. At moments I really liked what I was reading, but at others I just felt like skimming because I had already understood what was happening. I don’t think this is the best book on being a father, it’s ... The Good Dad
On 4/21 Kenneth Campbell wrote: I’ll be honest, I got this book because I felt like I wanted to enjoy every page, grow spiritually, and learn about the soul. For at least the first part of the book I was not satisfied. Ortberg quotes Dallas Willard probably close to a hundred times, not that this is a bad thing, but it felt more ... Soul Keeping by John Ortberg
On 4/16 Kenneth Campbell wrote: It is a good book because it pushes me to read Scripture more. I think every good book should lead us to praise God and this book does! I did like it, but it wasn’t blowing me away. It really depended on the writer. I think this book is a great book to read if you want a push in the right direction ... Get Excited!
On 4/1 Kenneth Campbell wrote: With each ring comes more intimacy with Jesus. So the book is in a bunch of different chapters, sections, areas, you have it. It seems like more of a devotional than a book that you would read straight through. I wouldn’t recommend this book as one you just read through, but I would recommend it to ... It Made Me Listen to God!
On 3/21 Kenneth Campbell wrote: This makes it look like a Rob Bell book, minus the poor theology. He additionally teaches and shares in this book. He allows you to learn from his experiences and from the original language. He explains and shows you a lot of GREEK and HEBREW in this book. If that is your thing then this book is for ... I know there is a lot of Love books out there! But this is a keeper!
On 3/10 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Tired of all the anti-male propaganda out there? I know, as a man, I was brought up in a world where a man had to be super macho and today manhood is being crushed to feminism.

On 2/17 Kenneth Campbell wrote: On the Road of Erasmus, the resurrected Jesus appeared and walked with two followers. However, they didn’t recognize Him. As they walked, Jesus spoke and explained to them how the Old Testament was all about Him and how He had to die on the Cross. If the Old Testament itself doesn’t convince you, ... Good, just not Great
On 2/3 Kenneth Campbell wrote: When I was browsing the BookSneeze website for the next book I would review, my eyes came upon Restless by Jennie Allen. I never heard of her previous book, Anything, or the praise it had received. I assumed it was just another book that a new author put together. It looked good, though. I was excited ...

On 1/12 Kenneth Campbell wrote: What are your priorities in life? Where do you find your worth? Do you enjoying serving, or do you need to serve to think that you are worthy to enjoy life?

On 11/26 Kenneth Campbell wrote: I quickly realized this wasn’t a prosperity gospel book, but an “I came to give you life, and life fulfilled” type of book.

On 11/16 Kenneth Campbell wrote: This Bible was a Daily Reading Bible using Brennan Manning’s lifetime comments and sayings to help the reader understand the larger picture of the text. It is like having someone by your side helping you read. I really enjoyed how the Bible looked with the red door cover and the pages and font schemes ... I liked it!
On 11/4 Kenneth Campbell wrote: While MacArthur is a cessationist, believing the Spirit works differently than in the New Testament thereby saying the gifts of the Spirit have ended, I would be more appropriately place in the continualist camp I would have to say MacArthur does a good job presenting his argument against the Charismatic ...

On 9/18 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Life is all about living. Far too often we don’t do life like God wants us to. Everything should be redeemed, even our mundane lives.

On 8/30 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Pros: I love the devotions. They seem scattered, but the ones they do have are really insightful and applicable. I loved that about this Bible. It was also rather durable and nice to hold. Now, other than the devotions I wasn’t really excited about this Bible. I have read other Bibles like this and ... Mainly a Bible

On 7/2 Kenneth Campbell wrote: As I read through the Gospel of John I got to see everyone of these different additions and I really enjoyed them.

On 6/10 Kenneth Campbell wrote: This is not only a novel; in the back Len Bailey included Bible study questions for us to use this book in a small group. So if you are just looking to read a fun novel; this book is perfect for you. If you are looking for a creative Bible study; this book is perfect for you. It is still a bit childish ...

In the first section ... A Great Tool for Post-Graduates!
On 3/14 Kenneth Campbell wrote: Rice Brooks does an amazing job with this book. God's Not Dead is a great book for any Christian who has doubts.

Balance the Faith Balance Beam
On 2/19 Kenneth Campbell wrote: It is definitely a book for new Christians. Smith almost waters down the Gospel to present the person of Jesus. It's a book of fundamentals and it's put in such a way that everyone can put themselves in Jesus' shoes. I do say almost, because he walks on the edge. Smith does a great job emphasizing the ... A Great Seeker Friendly Book
On 2/8 Kenneth Campbell wrote: It is broken up into different sections and teaches you over the course of a year how to live second to Christ. It is more than just a Biblical passage and some text.

On 11/27 Kenneth Campbell wrote: A Year With G.K. Chesterton is, of course, a daily devotional that should last the duration of one year.
