5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit by Nicki Koziarz

Nicki Koziarz wrote 5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit for me. I have a horrible habit of quitting the things I commit to doing. I’ve quit going to my offline book clubs. I’ve quit doing things with my online book clubs. I haven’t been doing things with my blogging groups. About the only […]

Single, Gay, Christian by Gr..

Single, Gay, Christian by Gregory Coles

This book wasn’t written for me. It probably wasn’t written for you either. Unless, of course, you happen to be LGBTQ, Christian, and single/celibate by choice. Gregory Coles did not write this book for straight Christians to teach them how to treat their LGBTQ sisters and brothers in Christ. He wrote this book to help […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
