The Mockingbird Parables by ..

The Mockingbird Parables by Matt Litton

When I originally picked this book up, I thought it would be fairly straightforward. I knew it was based in “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, but I wasn’t expecting to need to read that book before being able to use/work with this book. Sadly, this book requires a working knowledge of/familiarity with “To […]

Know Who You Are | Live Like..

Know Who You Are | Live Like it Matters by Tim Tebow and A.J. Gregory

If anyone thinks this book is *just* for home schooled children, they’d be wrong. This book is actually good for any teen, and even good for some adults to be honest. The fact the Tim Tebow was home schooled is most likely the reason behind him determining the book would be for home schooled kids. […]

The Incredible, Powerful, In..

The Incredible, Powerful, Inspiring, & Engaging Story of Women in the Bible by Jumoke Akinniranye

While I was drawn in by the title of this book, I honestly thought I would end up not liking it. After all, I usually get annoyed with non-fiction Christian books for some reason. There always seems to be something that just bugs me about them. Not so much for this one. Jumoke Akinniranye paints […]

All Saints by Michael Spurlo..

All Saints by Michael Spurlock with Jeanette Windle

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 De..

He Calls You Beautiful by Dee Brestin

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 Catheri..

Anchored by Death by Catherine Finger

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 Withro..

Vegangelical by Sarah Withrow King

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 Sm..

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Smith

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,..

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

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 B..

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

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,..

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

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 […]

Autopsy of a Deceased Church..

Autopsy of a Deceased Church by Thom S. Rainer

I found this book to be quite interesting and eye opening.  I’d always wondered what could possibly cause a particular church location to shut its doors and now I have a fairly good idea of what those reasons are. Rainer doesn’t sugar coat the truth about why churches die. While to someone who might be […]
