The complete title is, “Neither Complementarian Nor Egalitarian: A Kingdom Corrective to the Evangelical Gender Debate” by Michelle Lee-Barnwell. Of all the books about this topic I’ve read, this one is the most unique.  That’s my nice way of getting to what I really think:   I can’t stand what she has done.  If I’m reading her conclusion right, Lee-Barnwell ends up on the complementarian side with criticism only...

by John Holt I still like his first book best (How Children Fail), which is a bit disappointing to me.  I always hope for better and better, but I shouldn’t be surprised.  This happens with most secular books I read.  “Teach Your Own” gives a much clearer picture of Holt’s vision for children and the world in general than he did in “How Children Fail”.  So overall, there were some good things and some concerning things. Negatives This...

Reading through the whole Bible ought to be a basic discipline for every Christian.  This is the Book we love.  It is our basis for life and godliness.  How can we live in the way God wants if we don’t read it?  This year,  I chose the chronological schedule, and loved it!  Years ago I had read through a printed Chronological Bible but had forgotten how helpful this method was.   Job is read toward the beginning of the year since Job lived...

There are many lovely and beautiful ladies in our churches! I love each of them and admire them for their qualities that I identify with, and for those qualities that I lack. All of us have differing talents and ability, strengths and weaknesses. Each of us has a certain set of responsibilities that God has given us, and I’m so glad that He has not left us to wonder and guess at what we should be about. Our Lord has directed us to some specific things we ought to be doing, who should be doing them, how we should be while doing...

This was a really great book.  Easy to read and not too long which is good for a busy mom like me.  It is written by a mother and daughter who have two different personalities.  She says if you imagine Marilla Cuthbert and Anne Shirley writing a book together, that’s what you’ll get in this book.  I can relate more to the even-keeled Marilla, and Anne is an example of a totally different emotional makeup.  Marilla is one of my favorite...

John Holt understands children.   If you are an educator of any kind, and that includes parents, take the time to read this book!  How are we teaching?   How do our students think?  How can I help them think?  Even with 300 pages, “How Children Fail” is a super easy read.  Holt’s conversation style and simple observations kept me glued to the pages. If you were a poor student, you will identify with this book.  If...
