Called to Controversy

Called to Controversy

On 4/2 Chris Comfort wrote: I finished Called to Controversy and was quite impressed with this biography. This is the story of Moishe Rosen, a Jewish born and raised man who was called to Christ and formed Jews for Jesus. The book follows a standard biographical format, but the tone is one that speaks to the true humanness of ... Great Book - A Very Real Man...

Then Sings My Soul Book 3

Then Sings My Soul Book 3

On 1/26 Chris Comfort wrote: This is Robert J. Morgan's third foray into the back story of our traditional Christian Hymns, and I have to admit as someone who purchased Books 1 and 2, I was wondering if I would find songs I love in Book 3 - or would only the rarely sung, rarely cared about songs be left. I was pleasantly surprised ... Enjoyable 3rd Part

REGGIE

REGGIE

On 1/16 Chris Comfort wrote: Where do you go when you realize your life began with a $20 bill? I cannot imagine how a second grader reacts to being told that they are on this earth, because a 16 year old mother of three needed to sell her body to feed her children. That alone is a sad commentary on where Reggie Dabbs starts - but ... Great for Me & My 12 Year Old to Read Together

The Final Summit

The Final Summit

On 4/12 Chris Comfort wrote: I've reviewed a good number of books for Thomas Nelson Publishers, and this is not the first one that I've enjoyed so much that I had to pass it on. It is, however, the first one that I felt the need to write in the margins of and highlight (as if it were one of my college textbooks). This is a "sequel" ...

We Be Big

We Be Big

On 3/7 Chris Comfort wrote: I selected this book, because I have aways enjoyed reading about celebrities that share their faith. I certainly knew who Rick & Bubba were, but had no idea of just how solid their faith truly was. Their persona (for those who don't listen to their show) is very "Two Sexy Fat Guys". In real life - ... Excellent Book

Defiant Joy

Defiant Joy

On 2/15 Chris Comfort wrote: When given the option to review a book, I chose this one, because it looked like a biography. I mean, the title is "The Remarkable LIFE & Impact of G.K. Chesterton", right? Wrong. I absolutely love biographies and will read just about any one I can get my hands on. Perhaps if I had realized it was ...

Left at the Altar

Left at the Altar

On 1/17 Chris Comfort wrote: When I first decided to read this book, I couldn't really understand my motivations. I'm in a wonderful, God-chosen and God-blessed relationship with a Christian Husband. But, I have been rejected by men before. I don't know of a woman that hasn't. The idea behind the book is more universal than the ... For Anyone Who's Felt Rejection

Invasion

Invasion

On 1/11 Chris Comfort wrote: When I selected this book to review, I was expecting something along the lines of a Frank Peretti novel. Thomas Nelson is a Christian publishing house, so I was anticipating an exciting novel – with a strong Christian storyline. Well…that’s not exactly what I got. Invasion is an interesting ...

Adventures in Booga Booga Land - Volume 1 (DVD)

On 11/8 Chris Comfort wrote: This is a children’s DVD that “cartoons” three of the Parables of Jesus.  Because it is a children’s DVD – and it came from a Christian company I trusted, I decided to let the Caterpillars watch it without me the first time (we watched it again, together). B10 and CW really enjoyed it, however it ... Adventures in Booga Booga Land – Volume 1 (DVD)

Same Kind of Different As Me

Same Kind of Different As Me

On 9/22 Chris Comfort wrote: I read this book, cover-to-cover, in less then a day. I was drawn to read it at first by the cover art (which seems rather shallow, but it was captivating). The book is the story of two men who come from vastly different worlds to join together in a true friendship. The point of view changes from author ...

NCV Dad's Bible

NCV Dad's Bible

On 7/1 Chris Comfort wrote: I chose to review the Dad's Bible: The Father's Plan, because Hubby has wanted a new bible, and this one looked like it would meet all his requirements.  It is New Century Version (NCV) and has two main areas of special content: Walking in Authority and Insights.Insights takes specific verses and ...

Jane Austen

Jane Austen

On 5/4 Chris Comfort wrote: I was so pleased to find this book about Jane Austen, especially since I am currently in the middle of directing Pride & Prejudice at our local community theatre. It is a look into the life of Jane (“Jenny”) Austen, who wrote her three most popular works before she turned twenty-four, and died ... Jane Austen (Christian Encounters Series)

The Chronological Guide to the Bible

The Chronological Guide to the Bible

On 3/10 Chris Comfort wrote: Chronological Guide to the Bible is one of those titles that speaks for itself!  The guide walks the reader through the 9 Epochs of History, placing the Scriptures in chronological order, rather than canonical.  It contains an easy-to-follow checklist from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, so ...
