Live The Let-Go Life – Joseph Prince

We’ve all seen the t-shirts, tote bags and coffee mugs that boast, “Too blessed to be stressed.”  Maybe you even have one. (I do, too!) But after we pour the caffeine into our favorite mug, or, look in the mirror wearing a cute shirt, reality begs for an answer to the question, “How do we…

Behold The Man – Bodie and Brock Thoene

The last book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, Behold The Man, was such an eye opener for me.  Set during the time of Christ’s earthly ministry, it’s written from a Roman point of view and had this theme, “What did Rome think of Jesus?”  Honestly, every time I’ve read the gospels, it never occurred to me…

Take This Cup – Bodie and Brock Thoene

Take This Cup is the second book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, a biblical fiction series set at the time of Christ.  If you read my review of the first book (When Jesus Wept) you may remember I began this series for Easter and really enjoyed it.  The writing style and characters drew me into the…

When Jesus Wept – Bodie and Brock Thoene

For Easter, I wanted to read a Biblical Fiction series set in the New Testament.  I wanted something that would connect me to the time period Jesus lived in and maybe even offer new understanding in the way fiction does best.  I chose The Jerusalem Chronicles by Bodie and Brock Thoene and what can I…

Great Expectations – Charles Dickens

When you read a lot of Christian Historical Romance novels, there’s something you come to expect in every story – a happy ending.  Then you come to a book like Great Expectations.  Written over a hundred years ago, well, you understand that it’s a little different than what you’re accustomed to coming out of today’s…

The City of David – Hershel Shanks

Do you know what it’s like to rummage through your old stuff and pick something up and say, “Ooo cool!  I didn’t know I had that!”  That’s what it felt like when I discovered The City of David among some old books while cleaning my basement.  In March, I visited Israel for the first time;…

Unmerited Favor – Joseph Prince

After reading several of Prince’s books like Power of Right Believing, Destined To Reign and Grace Revolution (just to name a few) I wondered, Is Unmerited Favor going to really be that different?  I mean, you can only talk about grace so much before you start repeating yourself, right?  Not so.  Unmerited Favor takes you…

Carolina Gold – Dorothy Love

Carolina gold.  At first glance, you may associate the title with the golden beaches of South Carolina’s coast, or maybe a dazzling sunset over the Atlantic’s shoreline.  Though the title of this historical romance does not exclude those things in its meaning, you might be surprised to learn that the warm and fuzzy feeling the…

Spiritual Warfare – Joseph Prince

Spiritual Warfare may be one of the smaller volumes written by Pastor Joseph Prince, but a lack in pages doesn’t mean a lack in great illustrations or teaching.  The “armor of God” in Ephesians chapter six has always been a popular topic among churches and authors in Christianity; and I’m sure we’ve all heard it…
