On 4/2 AnnaGrace wrote: Tammy Algood, author of The Complete Southern Cookbook: More than 800 of the Most Delicious, Down-Home Recipes, has hit another home run with Farm Fresh Southern Cooking: Straight from the Garden to Your Dinner Table. Farm Fresh Southern Cooking is an absolutely stunningly gorgeous cookbook. Filled ... Yum!
On 2/19 AnnaGrace wrote: The Book of Man is not something to give to your son and just set him loose with it; nothing wrong with that but you'll miss many opportunities if you do. There is much worthy of discussion in The Book of Man and if you just give it to your son and leave him alone with it, you will be missing a powerful ... Highly Recommended For Sons
On 1/3 AnnaGrace wrote: I had high hopes for this book but, though the book was decent and had much potential, it never quite lived up to that potential. I don’t take the time to read very many novels as there’s far too many good theological books crying out to be read; however, since I have read some books in the past ... Decent but not the greatest novel I've read
On 10/29 AnnaGrace wrote: Three Cups is a good, basic, introduction for children into spending, giving and saving. The pictures are lovely and have an old-fashioned feel. The story line itself (which actually isn’t the point of the book) might have been somewhat fuller,a bit more complete, but, written as it is, still leaves ... Good book but needed to be laid out with a Scriptural foundation
On 10/13 AnnaGrace wrote: Do I like this book? Dislike this book? Yes. Let’s see now, where to begin, where to begin…. I appreciate the effort this author went to to reach out to and try to present the Gospel to a younger audience. Even if I don’t agree with his understanding of end time events and such (he is a firm dispensationalist), ... Somewhere in the middle
On 8/21 AnnaGrace wrote: Can anyone doubt that it is indeed time for Americans to stand up and take a stand for truth? For integrity? For honesty and decency? We’re on a roll…and it isn’t a good one. If something doesn’t change then many, many things will continue to change and none for the better. When our people and ... Not as valuable as I would wish
On 6/14 AnnaGrace wrote: Stephen Lawhead is an amazing writer. He’s prolific, detailed, enthusiastic and consistent; that rare SciFi/Fantasy novelist who truly seems to care about both his readers and his characters. His newest novel, Skin Map, mixes suspense with a fine dose of adventure and keeps its readers interest up ... Well worth the time it takes to read
On 4/29 AnnaGrace wrote: It is easy to go soft on this work and others by Mr. Maxwell because of the reputation he has among many Christians. Mr. Maxwell’s books seem to get results and, overall, they are just plain fun to read.“Beyond Talent” is, like many of his others, an easy and enjoyable read that, on first glance, ... Danger Within
On 4/16 AnnaGrace wrote: My two youngest daughters were so excited when this book came. Settling down together, side by side they explored the wisdom contained within this volume; “What does God’s princess do? Let’s see…it says here….” My daughters love doing the quizzes and going through the check-lists: “Ah, ... A Good Resource That Is A Lot of Fun!
On 4/12 AnnaGrace wrote: There is nothing good to be found in The Final Summit. The theology behind this book is wrong and since it is touted as a Christian book, nothing else really matters. Where does this book fail? A more appropriate question would be, where doesn't it fail? Let's see... Sinful men throughout the ages, ... Humanistic thinking tied up in an ugly bow
On 4/6 AnnaGrace wrote: I love Rick and Bubba. From the first time I saw them on the now-defunct TurnerSouth television station I loved them. Their show is an odd-mix of down-home humor, sports, political commentary, everyday life all mixed with faith in God that, strangely enough, works. This book is a group of word snapshots ... We Be Big is A Great Big Faith-Filled Fun Read
On 3/23 AnnaGrace wrote: As a woman, it’s always nice to hear “You’re not alone”, other women have been there, done that, survived and, perhaps, thrived. That is the message of New Life, Same Story by Jan Silvious. This book is not a theological treatise; it isn’t deep enough for that. However, it is a decent look ... Same Life, New Story
On 1/26 AnnaGrace wrote: I was hesitant to agree to review the Family Life Marriage Bible by Dennis and Barbara Rainey for fear it would be more man-centered than God-centered. My fears were allayed. This Bible is a very practical help for anyone who is concerned about receiving godly guidance for their marriage. The Family ... A Godly Resource For Holy, and Happy, Marriages
On 12/17 AnnaGrace wrote: I have read and benefited from Patsy's books before and, because of that, I really wanted to like this book. However, I didn't. This is why: Kaleidoscope fails to drive the reader into a deeper, more reverent, relationship with God. While Patsy has successfully treated various subjects relating to ... Kaleidoscope
