Finding Our Way Again

Finding Our Way Again

On 2/5 Jeremy Myers wrote: I was not excited to read this book. It is part of "The Ancient Practices Series" of which, I have previously read two other books (the volumes on Pilgrimage and Sabbath). Neither one captivated me. So I didn't expect much out of Brian McLaren's introductory volume either. Besides, I have read numerous ... Better than I expected

On 1/12 Jeremy Myers wrote: G. K. Chesterton is one of my favorite authors. His book Orthodoxy is on my Amazon “Burning  Books” list. I will write more about that list later. So it was with great excitement that I was recently invited to review Defiant Joy: The Remarkable Life and Impact of G. K. Chesterton by Kevin ... Defiant Joy

On This Day in Christian History

On This Day in Christian History

On 11/13 Jeremy Myers wrote: I generally don’t read devotionals, but I do enjoy church history. So it was with mixed feelings that I read Robert J. Morgan has recently published On This Day in Christian History, a devotional book which contains events from Christian history for every day of the year. Though the book contains ...

The Grace of God

The Grace of God

On 10/19 Jeremy Myers wrote: I can never get enough grace, both in life and in my reading. Some of the best books I have ever read are on the subject of grace, and a recent book by Andy Stanley is no exception. The book is The Grace of God, and should find it’s way to the top of your reading ... GRACE

Transforming Church in Rural America

Transforming Church in Rural America

On 10/11 Jeremy Myers wrote: Do you pastor a church in Rural America? One book you could read is Transforming Church in Rural America by Shannon O’Dell. I have always had a passion and a heart for rural churches and have previously pastored two rural churches. So when I received O’Dell’s book from Booksneeze to review, my first thought was, ...

Beyond Opinion

Beyond Opinion

On 9/8 Jeremy Myers wrote: I recently read the book, Beyond Opinion by Ravi Zacharias. As with most of his books, this is not a book you can skim through in an afternoon. It has substance. While the book is quite readable, the content requires you to stop and think about what you are reading. And that, of course, is what apologetics ... Beyond Opinion

A Girl's Guide to Life

On 6/20 Jeremy Myers wrote: Here’s a newsflash: I’m not a girl! Nevertheless, one book I read this week was A Girl’s Guide to Life by Katie Meier. I now know more about makeup, hairstyles, and clothing selection then ever before. This, of course, is only the beginning of what I will learn. You see…I have ... A Girl’s Guide to Life

Change Your Church for Good, Revised

Change Your Church for Good, Revised

On 5/27 Jeremy Myers wrote: Brad Powell’s book, Change Your Church for Good, is actually a revised edition of a 2007 book by the same name. Essentially, it is just another book about how a pastor took a struggling church, made a few tweaks, and it is now a thriving mega church. The emphasis is on developing leaders and casting vision for ... Small Church, Mega Church, No Church

Plan B

Plan B

On 5/3 Jeremy Myers wrote: Plan B by Pete Wilson is a great book for reviving hope in a person whose life has gone terribly wrong. Through biblical truths and stories, it shows that although life may not turn out the way we planned or imagined, we can trust God to resurrect something good from our shattered dreams. Part of me ... Plan B, C, D, E…

The Sacred Journey 2

The Sacred Journey 2

On 4/24 Jeremy Myers wrote: I recently read Charles Foster’s book, The Sacred Journey, which, according to the back cover, is a book about calling Christians to go on a pilgrimage. Prior to reading it, I imagined it to be a book about going on a metaphorical pilgrimage. You know…recognizing that we are all “on ... The Literal Pilgrim
