By: Chris Travis
This was a difficult book for me to review because it was extremely different than what I had been expecting. While many books are written about a specific topic and include both biblical support and personal illustrations, this particular book read much more like an autobiography. This wouldn’t necessarily ...

By: Steven Furtick
If you have ever heard Steven Furtick speak in person then you already know he is an extremely gifted motivational speaker. That does not always translate well into books though so my optimism was a bit guarded. I am happy to report that Furtick does not disappoint in this writing however. I recognized bits and pieces...

By: Pete Wilson
I was first introduced to Pete Wilson’s writings with his first book, Plan B, which I thoroughly enjoyed. So I was very excited to see his second release, Empty Promises, and held out great hope for another winner, particularly when I noticed a high number of endorsements. The truth is though, this title ...

By Faith, Not By Sight
By: Scott MacIntyre
The subtitle of this book reads: “The Inspirational Story of a Blind Prodigy, a Life-Threatening Illness, & an Unexpected Gift.” That subtitle purely captures the essence of this book. It is the amazing story of a young man who endured the types of hardships many of us cannot begin to ...

By: Jonathan Falwell
This new book by Jonathan Falwell is meant to be an introduction to the life and ministry of Jesus. However, it isn’t written like a history book or even an apologetic. Rather, the emphasis is towards the reader: What does Jesus mean for you? Overall, the book is a bit vanilla with nothing really standing ...

I am a Follower
By: Leonard Sweet
Leonard Sweet provided an interesting perspective on discipleship in this book. He asserts that while almost everybody emphasizes leadership, Jesus was looking instead for followers. This initial observation, however, was by far the best part of the book. Sweet is known for taking a concept, turning it on its ...

Stuck: A DVD-based Study for Women
By: Jennie Allen
This small group DVD-based study for women is quite good. Often these studies come about from a book and they don’t always translate well into a small group environment. This study, however, looks like it was designed specifically for small groups and therefore takes into consideration ...

Don’t Check Your Brains at the Door
By Josh McDowell
This book has been around a little while and the updated/revised edition states that more than 250,000 copies have been sold. Josh McDowell is a fairly well known apologist (one who defends their faith), so I expected this book to run in that vein, yet tailored for teenagers. Therefore ...

It Couldn't Just Happen
By: Lawrence O. Richards
This book is written from the creationist perspective and geared toward children eight years old and up. Richards is an established author of over 100 books and he has a remarkable grasp on what language would best fit this age group. While many books in this category bash opposing ...

Max on Life
By: Max Lucado
Max on Life is written from the perspective of a seasoned pastor who over the years has received many of the same kinds of questions across his desk. And because these are questions that are generally common to all people, it is the type of book that many will like to have on their shelf for reference. One of the ...

By: Mark Batterson
I read through this short book and came to the conclusion that it was just okay. Then I took a look at other reviews and finding myself in the minority thought I better take a second look. I wish I could say my opinion changed after doing so… it didn’t… but I think I did come to understand why...

The Beginning Reader’s Bible
Illustrated By: Marijke ten Cate
There are such a wide variety of children’s Bibles available today that it is often difficult to sift through and find what sets each apart. If you’re like me, one of the first things you notice is the artwork. Secondly, you take a look at what stories are ...
