You Who?

 

Rachel Jankovic has a way with words and analogies, but more than that her clarity and no-nonsense approach to Christian living is what’s needed today.  Because there is a lot of nonsense out there. You may have been told that you need to know yourself, to reach a higher self-actualization.  …

Fusses, Fights, and Funerals

 

The worship wars may be in a bit of a stand-still, but the opinions are still ingrained in all of us.  I’ve appreciated Ben Everson’s music very much as well as his testimony, so I was happy to see him write a book about his point of view.  Being conservative …

Penned Without Ink

 

This is the true story of a tragic accident and one family’s journey of faith by Sarah Lynn Phillips, and I loved it.  The testimony given about how God’s grace and strength and peace sustained an entire family through tragedy and change was a beautiful thing to read.  Sarah Phillips …

Alive

 

I enjoyed this little booklet.  It is only $0.99 on Kindle, and I read it in just an hour or so.  I’ve enjoyed J. Warner Wallace’s approach to apologetics, probably because I enjoy a good true life mystery.  Wallace was a veteran investigator and an atheist who turned to Christianity …

Sanctuary

 

I liked this book.  Sydney Millage gives a comprehensive view of the heart of a victim of abuse.  For those who aren’t sure if what you are experiencing is abuse, this book is what you need to read!  For those who are in healthy relationships,  this is a great book …

Countering the Claims of Evangelical Feminism

 

I changed my mind.  This book is the best I’ve read on this issue.  Every lay person ought to read it.  Every Christian woman ought to read it! This book is a condensation of the comprehensive book Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth: An Analysis of More than 100 Disputed Questions.  …

Teach Your Own

 

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 …

Neither Complementarian Nor Egalitarian

 

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 in …

How Children Fail

 

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.  …

True Feelings

 

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 …

The Pentateuch

 

I used this book to help me through my morning Bible Reading of the Pentateuch this year.  I ended up not just referencing it, but reading thru it completely.  The simple terminology was so appreciated, perfect for the lay person.   The charts and summaries helped give the overview of the …

Deja Who?

 

Deb Brammer has done it again.  This sequel to “Broken Windows” follows the same vein of wholesome Christian fiction for young adults. I enjoyed the discussion beginning in chapter 10 about relative truth vs absolute truth, and real vs. fake conversion.  Deb Brammer demonstrates her thorough understanding of far Eastern …

Getting Things Done

 

As a teenager and then single adult, I thought organization meant neat shelves and matching totes, and I could actually get all if my work done without writing a single to do list!  I found out life requires much more than that. Reality hit me as a young wife and …

American Phoenix

 

America fought not just one war for independence; it fought two.  The War of 1812 threatened to be the downfall of our fledgling nation, but John Quincy Adams and his wife, Louisa, were instrumental in raising her up from the ashes.   Although the author used simile and metaphor much …

Broken Windows

 

Now THIS is Christian fiction.  Deb Brammer had me at the first chapter, and I’m not just saying that. I don’t read a whole lot of fiction these days, but I’ve loved Deb’s articles and helps for small church ministry on her blog, www.DebBrammer.com.  Her books are an extension of her …

Partners in Ministry

 

This was a good little book overall, especially for the Type A personality pastor’s wife.  For me it seemed like a lot of the author’s struggles within her spirit were not my struggles.  I wished there was more from my point of view.  However, there was a lot here that were …

Handbook for Ministers’ Wives

 

I enjoy Dorothy Patterson.  Her contributions to the complementarian view of womanhood have been invaluable!  This book is also a great addition to the pastor’s wife’s library.   The main body of the book reads like Emily Post’s Guide to Manners.  She tells the pastor’s wife how to act and …

Joy

 

I enjoy reading biographies.  It is always a fascinating thing to find out what makes a person tick.  Abigail Santamaria very thoroughly researched the life of Joy Davidman Gresham, the woman who captivated C.S. Lewis as the subtitle states.   Now I know why many of Lewis’s friends did not …

This is a must read for every Christian.  Andrew Murray’s classic book is written to the believer who finds it difficult to live a holy Christian life.  Murray had a great burden to bring along new Christians and help them to grow spiritually.  So he walks the reader through that …
