Not A Fan – Kyle Idleman

Not A Fan was my first experience with a book from Kyle Idleman.  My friend and I were looking for a book to read and study together; this was one of the titles we considered and then decided upon.  She had read it before and really enjoyed it, and I had also heard many good…

100 Days of Right Believing – Joseph Prince

Some of my favorite books are devotionals.  Over the years, I’ve went through several yearly, 90 day and other daily devotionals to accompany my reading and quiet time.  Two years ago, I went through Joseph Prince’s Reign In Life devotional and found that it was just what I needed at that time.  After doing Dr….

Hebrew Word Study – Chaim Bentorah

Don’t let the title fool you…the book really isn’t a word study in the sense that you will be speaking Hebrew by the time you turn the last page.  Actually, I would consider this book a devotional that focuses on one Hebrew word per chapter, with some added stories from the author for affect. The…

Munich Signature – Bodie Thoene

The Jews are desperate to leave Germany – but no country will take them.  Hitler has his sights set on Czechoslovakia – and no country will stop him. We often hear the phrase, “You don’t know what tomorrow holds.”  After reading this book and re-living the reality that many people faced in the events leading…

The Lost Books of the Bible: 13 Controversial Texts

Do you know that feeling you get when someone who is not a Christian says, “I just don’t get the Bible.  It’s confusing,” and though you try to understand their point of view, you can’t, because you’ve been around the Bible your whole life?  Well, if you want to know how those folks feel, try…

When Angels Cry – Mary Lu Tyndall

After reading this book, you may come to the end with a desire to be more like Angelica, more interested in the spiritual battle spoken of in Ephesians chapter six and you will probably dislike a guy named Thomas.  (And I mean, really, really dislike…)  But one thing you won’t dislike is the switch the…

A Heart Most Certain – Melissa Jagears

I was scrolling through Facebook one day when I saw an author’s post – she was giving away a few copies of her new book to a random number of folks who commented on her post – and as any avid reader would do, I commented.  A little while later, I was tagged in a…

Every Day in His Presence – Dr. Charles Stanley

I have this tradition.  Every year, I use a different devotional for my morning quiet time.  In 2016, I read Every Day in His Presence by Dr. Charles Stanley, senior pastor of First Baptist Church Atlanta and one of my favorite preacher/authors.  After spending a year with this beautiful volume, I’ll give a brief outline…

It’s Good To Be Queen – Liz Curtis Higgs

Scotland.  I had always associated Liz Curtis Higgs with her Historical Fiction Series set in the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland.  Every time I see this author’s name, my mind imagines purple heather hills, castles and a fictional storyline that often parallels a Biblical story.  Some of the best Biblical Fiction books I’ve ever read,…
