All Saints by Michael Spurlock with Jeanette Windle

All Saints by Michael Spurlo..

Imagine being called to lead a church with issues. Dire financial issues, a recent split in the congregation, and a congregation that needs to heal from said split. Now imagine that you’ve been called to lead this church as your very first assignment out of seminary. That’s what Reverend Michael Spurlock faced when he was […]

He Calls You Beautiful by Dee Brestin

He Calls You Beautiful by De..

I’m generally looking for new Bible study books and when given the chance to review He Calls You Beautiful I thought I’d hit the jackpot. Finally, someone could explain to me why in the world Song of Songs (Song of Solomon in some Bibles) was even included in the Bible, because it just didn’t seem […]

Anchored by Death by Catherine Finger

Anchored by Death by Catheri..

I really wanted to read this book. I really wanted to like this book. But after getting a third of the way through the book and still finding that it just didn’t capture or keep my interest, I knew. This book was destined for the abandoned books shelf. I don’t know if the problem was […]

Vegangelical by Sarah Withrow King

Vegangelical by Sarah Withro..

As a vegetarian Christian who struggles daily with whether or not it is all right from a faith perspective to even be a vegetarian. I’ve had Romans 14:2 KJV “For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs” used against me as a reason not to be vegetarian. So […]

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Smith

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Sm..

It took me a bit to get into this one, but once I did, I was hooked. I admit, I have a BDSM fetish when I read–if the fan fiction I tend to read is any indication–so any book that includes that is generally a winner with me. I have to say though, this is […]

Starve Vol. 1 by Brian Wood, Daniel Zezelj, Dave Stewart

Starve Vol. 1 by Brian Wood,..

Starve was, in a word, amazing. I was absolutely captivated, only breaking when I need to blink my eyes away from my screen for a few seconds. I didn’t want it to end and was sad when it did. What intrigued me was the fact that the graphic novel was based around a cooking show. […]

Southern Cross Volume 1 by Becky Cloonan, Andy Belanger, Lee Loughridge, Serge LaPointe

Southern Cross Volume 1 by B..

Ok, here goes. I am not usually a comics/graphic novel person. Probably because I’m not big on pictures in my books. I literally dislike graphics, pictures, graphs, charts, etc., in my books when I’m reading. I’d rather have the information with nothing breaking it up other than maybe different colored/sized headlines. I have to say, […]

Unlimited by Davis Bunn

Unlimited by Davis Bunn

At first glance you’d never know this was a Christian fiction story. The way the book starts out, you’d think you had started your ordinary, run of the mill action/adventure/mystery novel. But as you go on, you see sprinklings of why this is a Christian fiction story. The story was a very good one–and I […]

The Race by Darrell Waltrip, Kyle Froman, & Billy Mauldin

The Race by Darrell Waltrip,..

I’ve been a NASCAR fan for quite a while so I know who Darrell Waltrip is. And I’ll admit, I thought this book was going to be more about racing than about being a Christian. I suppose I should have expected the Christianity bit by the publisher, but I wasn’t paying attention when I picked […]

I Will by Thom S. Rainer

I Will by Thom S. Rainer

This book will definitely step on some readers’ toes. I’ve always heard that a good sermon or a good book on how to be a proper Christian will step on your toes. That’s not always a good thing. In the case of I Will, it is. Too many times Christians (and non-Christians as well) focus […]
