Last year I enjoyed a Bible Study which centered around this book, and I enjoyed it immensely.  It is written from a Christian perspective of complementary gender roles and biblical submission to husbands.  The layout was helpful with discussion questions at the end of each chapter.  Study materials are also available.  I appreciated how Martha Peace successfully refutes the so-called “doormat theology” by showing how God has made provision...

 From “The Knowledge of the Holy” by A.W. Tozer A Christian ought to seek to understand the Almighty God as much as possible through the Scriptures.  Tozer’s The Knowledge of the Holy brings the reader along this pursuit.  I loved following his train of thought.  The book is an easy read, yet the concepts are of such depth that you can’t help but pause often to contemplate and thank God for who He is.  I read this as part of my morning devotions.  Each chapter is easy to read in one...

The subtitle of the book is “The Pastor of America’s First Megachurch and the Texas Murder Trial of the Decade in the 1920s.”  This is a research project by David Stokes about J.

A refreshing book! So many ladies’ books dwell too much on our need to feel good about our position in Christ, but they let us off the hook when it comes to personal holiness in a sinful world.  Not so here.  Elisabeth Elliot is known most widely for her marriage to martyred missionary, Jim Elliot.  I find in her many books that Elisabeth Elliot...
