Ascent from Darkness

On 11/1 Reid Cardwell wrote: Ascent from Darkness: How Satan’s Soldier Became God’s Warrior by Michael Leehan is the story of a man’s journey into a life of satanism and his subsequent salvation. The author is not a writer by trade, however he tells his story from his own perspective followed by entries from several ... Review of Ascent from Darkness by Michael Leehan

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky

On 10/18 Reid Cardwell wrote: Fyodor Dostoevsky By Peter Leithart is the first of the Christian Encounters Series that I have read. I became interested in Dostoyevsky after reading about him in another book and while I have not read any of his actual writings, he seems to be a compelling person. Not knowing a lot about him or his ... Review of Fyodor Dostoevsky from the Christian Encounters Series by Peter Leithart

The Bone House

The Bone House

On 9/8 Reid Cardwell wrote: The Bone House is the second in Stephen Lawhead’s Bright Empires series of novels, combining “hidden dimensions and lands in any possible alternate world–with a dose of time slippage thrown in for good measure.” This quote by Stephen Lawhead himself is taken from a brief essay ...

The Skin Map

The Skin Map

On 8/31 Reid Cardwell wrote: The Skin Map is the first book I’ve read by Stephen R. Lawhead and I thorougly enjoyed it. The book falls into the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre and a lot of these books follow the same general pattern: a sort of “Here and Back Again” theme like J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Lawhead’s ...

What In The World Is Going On? (Trade Paper)

On 8/12 Reid Cardwell wrote: Jesus chided the Pharisees for being able to look at the current weather patterns and reasonably predict forthcoming weather, but their inability to look at the various geopolitical events of their time and understand them in light of prophecy.   Today we see many signs that the end is fast approaching ...

Wild at Heart (Revised and Expanded)

Wild at Heart (Revised and Expanded)

On 6/29 Reid Cardwell wrote: Wild at Heart impacted me several years ago when I read it as part of a men’s group at my church, and this new version adds some clarifications and stories to make the book even more compelling. While the message could be construed that being “nice” is a detriment, I think that reading deeper will help the reader ... Wild at Heart by John Eldredge – A Review

The Selfless Gene

The Selfless Gene

On 4/7 Reid Cardwell wrote: The premise of this book was to show how one can believe in God and believe in Darwin, however it fails miserably. The author confesses in his preface that he not a theologian and his sloppy handling of the Scriptures is proof of that. A few paragraphs later in his introduction he states ...

The White Horse King

The White Horse King

On 1/8 Reid Cardwell wrote: The account of the battle in opening paragraphs of The White Horse King could have been taken straight from the pages of The Lord of the Rings. From there the book becomes more of a historical narrative, albeit a very interesting one. Alfred was the fifth son of Æthelwulf, king of Wessex. We learn ...

The American Patriot's Almanac

The American Patriot's Almanac

On 11/24 Reid Cardwell wrote: This book is a must-have for anyone who cares about America. Our country became great because of numerous people doing the best they could where they were. In this book you will read about patriots you've heard of, such as Andrew Jackson and George Washington, but also many that you have not, like Israel ... Great (re)Introduction to American History

The Noticer

The Noticer

On 4/27 Reid Cardwell wrote: Perspective. This little book is all about how your perspective affects not only your outlook on life but the quality of your life. This fictional account of a character named “Jones” is full of little nuggets for various aspects of life that open the door to leave you wanting more about the ... The Noticer

Word of Promise Next Generation New Testament MP3 Set

On 12/15 Reid Cardwell wrote: The Word of Promise Next Generation - New Testament: Dramatized Audio Bible is a great addition to anyone’s library if you have children.  My own children know a lot of the actors from their various roles in currently popular movies and t.v. shows and this audio Bible certainly appeals to them.  The DVD that comes ...

The Orthodox Study Bible

The Orthodox Study Bible

On 11/26 Reid Cardwell wrote: I have really enjoyed my copy of the Orthodox Study Bible. I come from a primarily “Protestant” background and the short introduction to the Orthodox Church was very helpful for me to understand just who is the Orthodox Church. I’m sure there is much more to know than the information contained in the short introduction, ... Great Introduction to Orthodoxy
