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 great passage of John 15, the Vine and the Branches.  There are 31 chapters so it can be read in one month at a chapter per day.  I read it in connection with my daily devotions....

Carolyn Custis James wrote this book as her own addendum to the best selling secular book, Half the Sky, which is a book based on the Chinese proverb that women hold up half the sky.  It is a cry for justice and action against the oppression of women and girls around the world.  Without having read Half the Sky, I think I might agree with it actually.   There is no objection from me if we want to encourage people to help end the degradation of women around...

Martha Peace is a wonderful author for women’s issues, not the least of which is her book, “The Excellent Wife“.  She teams up with Pastor Kent Keller to bring us a book solely devoted to the topic of modesty.  The book is geared toward young women in particular, but I think women of all ages can benefit from it.   The emphasis on the heart issues is so refreshing.  Although details about specific items of clothing are addressed, by far...

I added Warren Wiesbe’s bundle of commentaries on The Gospels in his “Be Series” books to my Kindle.  Each book is named for its accompanying virtue that the Bible is calling us to display.  “Be Loyal” is the commentary on Matthew, for instance.  “Be Dilligent” is Mark.  “Be Compassionate” is the first  part of Luke, and “Be Courageous” is the second part of Luke.  “Be...

Edges of Truth is a true story of a woman falsely convicted of murder. I love real life crime stories, and this really satisfied my appetite for it.  I was swept up in the story of injustice and redemption and couldn’t put the book down!   The issue of shaken baby syndrome is explored as well as the difficulties of the legal system.  Although there are a lot of legal and medical details, Deb Brammer brings the reader along easily.  I thoroughly...

Agnes Sligh Turnbull’s stories have become popular among traditional women.  Some groups even have used the title of this book to encourage ladies in home-making, and really that is the value of this book.  Critics have called her old-fashioned, but that’s not a deterrent for me!   This is a short story about a woman and her husband who are trying to make a go of their small farm.  Their arduous work in the fields has begun to affect the peacefulness...
