The Final Summit

The Final Summit

On 4/11 Andrea wrote: Final Summit by Andy Andrews was surprisingly good. I am still puzzled about how to classify it though; the cover says it's a "Self-help" book but it reads as a novel.

Read and Share: The Jesus Series, Life and Miracles

On 6/16 Andrea wrote: From my perspective the Read and Share Bible DVD, The Jesus Series is nothing to get too excited about. The characters all look alike, there are uncomfortable “dramatic” pauses and it seems really shallow in the explanation of Jesus’ ministry. My oldest child (6-years-old) even asked why they ...
