Scripture gives us this juxtaposition of getting out our telescopes and viewing the vastness of His Word and yet using the microscope to really investigate the nitty gritty details.   The great constellations of foundational doctrines are so plain for all the world to see.  It is like coming across the wide plain and seeing the whole mountain range before you.  Viewing those mighty vistas of great truths.  You gaze in awe at one huge mountain, then...

Sally Llod-Jones has written quite a popular children’s Bible published under the children’s wing of Zondervan Publishing.  I might rather have called it, “the Children’s Bible Storybook” because it is not a Bible.  It’s not a translation.   It’s not even really a paraphrase. Maybe we might call it a children’s devotional book.  It is a storybook based on the Bible much like the Christian Bible history...

I discovered Alice Dalgliesh’s when her Thanksgiving Story was recommended to me.  My kids enjoyed that story so much that I looked to see what other books she had written. Sure enough, the rest of her children’s stories are classics, and I wish she had written more before her death in 1979.  These are perfect for early readers.  The 4th of July Story and the Thanksgiving Story are both suitable for reading to young children.  The Courage...

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...

I like to learn.  I like to spend some time each day reading articles and books and listening to radio broadcasts.  There are so many good thoughts and ideas and thought-provoking points of view.  As I try to put my own thoughts into words on this blog, I’m reminded that it could be easy for readers to misunderstand my words.  And...

This recipe is hubby approved!  We like salty foods, and this was a great way to use up all that fresh Alaska Red salmon.  We smoked our own salmon filets (recipe to come in the future), and used that for the main ingredient.  Super yummy!   ...

My book shelf is quickly filling with books from the complementarian point of view of women’s roles, and Ryrie’s book is a great addition.  He showed the great worth and dignity that Christianity has given women.  The first edition was written in 1979, and this second edition was published in 2011.  Some parts of the book took a bit of slow reading without distraction, but it was well worth the time! Ryrie’s book begins with descriptions...
