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...

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...

Purchase this book on Amazon.com… 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...

Purchase here at Amazon.com Elisabeth Elliot is one of my favorite authors.  This book is a beautiful and honest look at the role of women in the context of married life.  It is a collection of short letters that she wrote to her daughter who was soon to be married, and it continues to bless countless Christian women all over the world.  This should be on every married woman’s bookshelf!   I read the book as part of my devotions.  Reading just one...
