Book Review: Skinny Gut Diet by Brenda Watson One of the basic premises of this book can be seen in this quote: “Gut microbes help give a new twist to the phrase ‘You are what you eat.’ You are what your gut microbes do with what you eat.” (page 14) Ms. Watson makes the claim that what is going on … Continue reading

Book Review: Look and Live by Matt Papa

book-review-look-and-live-by-matt-papa-f

Book Review: Look and Live by Matt Papa Behold the Soul-thrilling, Sin-destroying Glory of Christ. Look and Live is all about the why and the how to of beholding the glory of God. I liked the flavor or tone of this book immediately and even more so, the “call” on page 15. “The call is this: Make your life one … Continue reading

Book Review: Renewing Your Mind by Neil T. Anderson

book-review-renewing-your-mind-by-neil-t-anderson-f

Book Review: Renewing Your Mind by Neil T. Anderson Renewing Your Mind is a Bible study book, not a read-through book. It is designed for individual or small group study. It is organized into six week’s worth of bite-sized lessons. The lay-out reminded me of the scripture in Isaiah 28 that talks about learning precept upon precept, line upon line. … Continue reading

Book Review: When Heaven Seems Silent by Mark and Tammy Andres I was nearing the end of this book and had been crying because of it. My husband walks in and says, “You’ve been crying, look at that whole bowl full of kleenex, you shouldn’t read books like that.” I said, “That’s the sign of a really good book!” So, … Continue reading

Book Review: Dirty Faith by David Z. Nowell I could tell this book was special, even in the first couple of pages. This book is not a neutral book. It will either soften you or harden you. As you read this book, pray for God to soften your heart and to not miss out on a truth or lesson He … Continue reading

Book Review: Eyewitness to Glory: Moses by Mindy Ferguson

book-review-eyewitness-to-glory-moses-by-mindy-ferguson

Book Review: Eyewitness to Glory: Moses by Mindy Ferguson Discerning God’s Active Presence Another one of Ms. Ferguson’s great Bible study books. Be prepared for real Bible study. She makes you look up the scriptures. The verses are not included in the book. I think this is a good thing as it forces you to look them up yourself and then you … Continue reading
