The Founders' Key

The Founders' Key

On 3/16 Lawrence Caldwell wrote: This is a long title for what turned out to be a rather short book. Halfway through this otherwise excellent treatise on the contemporary value of these founding documents we find none other than the full text of the documents themselves. This was a major disappointment as I found the author's positions ... A Book Too Short

I Am a Follower

On 1/27 Lawrence Caldwell wrote: More and more books are coming out on this subject. Sweet's focus is mostly off the church and on Jesus.

On 5/20 Lawrence Caldwell wrote: Unlike my last review of Alton Gansky's "Conversations With God", Max Lucado's "Max on Life: Answers and Insights to Your Most Important Questions" promised max only delivered the minimum.

A Conversation with God

A Conversation with God

On 4/16 Lawrence Caldwell wrote: I have not read a book on apologetics since Josh McDowell's "Evidence That Demands a Verdict" back in college. I'm glad I picked up Gansky's "Conversations With God" because it is a perfect read for me as father with three young boys. The book indeed reads as easy as a conversation. These are the conversations ... A Must-Have Conversation

The Noticer

The Noticer

On 1/20 Lawrence Caldwell wrote: There’s a reason why this 156-page book ranked in the top 100 sellers for Christian books in 2010. It is worth reading more than once and buying for your friends. It’s a quick read but provocative too, with some worthwhile exploratory questions after the end of the story. As an introspective person, ... The Noticer
