Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter

On 10/27 Jared Young wrote: This follow up book to “Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord” is an excellent companion to further ground you in building a healthy family around biblical principles.

Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord

Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord

On 5/21 Jared Young wrote: This is by far the best 'parenting' book I have read. First off it has a proper perspective and is not a checkbox type of parenting book. What I mean by that is the other books give you the authors experience and you are expected to model what they did to become the best parents ever and it becomes a ... Better perspective on parenting

The Jesus We Missed

The Jesus We Missed

On 5/4 Jared Young wrote: The Jesus we missed by Patrick Henry Reardon was a fresh look at Christ. I really enjoyed the fact that Reardon highlighted Jesus Christ’s humanity without discounting his deity. The most interesting thing to me was his insight into how Christ’s personality was shaped by the world around him. This ... The Jesus We Missed

Real Marriage DVD-Based Study Kit

Real Marriage DVD-Based Study Kit

On 1/17 Jared Young wrote: This is a perfect compliment to the Real Marriage book. It is a up close and personal look at marriage with great sit down interviews with Mark & Grace Driscoll. My wife and I are currently working through the DVD's and the companion discussion books. You can really tell they have done their research ... Just buy it.

Real Marriage

Real Marriage

On 12/7 Jared Young wrote: This book has great potential. I have only read the first few chapters because I am planning on getting the DVD companion to take full advantage of what Mark and his wife have written to help those within or preparing for marriage. The description of the book should be enough for anyone in a marital ... THE book for marriages of today.

Ascent from Darkness

Ascent from Darkness

On 10/24 Jared Young wrote: Sounds like a fictional piece of work doesn't it? As I turned page after page in this gripping first hand account of someone willingly serving Satan and stepping into the grace of God, I was blown away. Leehan recounts his life with such realism and emphasis that you come to realize this was his reality ... Fact or Fiction?

Our Last Great Hope

Our Last Great Hope

On 9/20 Jared Young wrote: This book was right up my alley. For one I am a missionary heading to Southeast Asia to bring the Gospel to a tribe who do not have access to it in their language. So in part I am doing my part in fulfilling the Great Commission. I wanted to get this book to get some motivation to keep on keeping on. ... Refreshing Read

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

On 7/9 Jared Young wrote: Reading this book is like sitting and listening to that grandpa people always talk about but I never experienced. Ian Cron has an uncanny ability to make you laugh and cry within the same sentence. Overall the book is a decent read, but at times I was unsure on how it all connected. I kept reminding ...

Unleashed

Unleashed

On 4/19 Jared Young wrote: Erwin McManus is a nut. He is a radical nut; well at least through the eyes of a finite human. In the eyes of God? He is probably seen as a faithful servant. Unleashed is a great challenge to live the Christian life more barbaric that we have in previous generations here in the good ol’ US of A. There ... Read it. Live it. Love it.

The Beginning Reader's Bible

The Beginning Reader's Bible

On 2/16 Jared Young wrote: This has to be one of the best kid's Bible I have come across thus far. The reason being is that is covers the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Yes, this particular Bible could have more of a theme leading up to Christ and showing through the Old Testament stories that Christ is no doubt ... A better Bible for kids

The Jesus Inquest

The Jesus Inquest

On 1/19 Jared Young wrote: Thanks to Charles Foster and his lawyer-bent mind we have a systematic approach to the case for and against the resurrection of Christ. This book takes a unique look at one of the most controversial figures in human history, Jesus Christ. We get a fair chance to see the views from both sides of the coin ... Case in Point

Slave

Slave

On 12/17 Jared Young wrote: This is a good book... until John MacArthur runs out of material half way through and seems to start repeating himself with different analogies and promoting his agenda of Lordship Salvation. I whole heartedly agree with what he has to say about having the right perspective of who Christ is and who ... Hidden Agenda: BEWARE

On This Day in Christian History

On This Day in Christian History

On 12/2 Jared Young wrote: Although I haven’t finished this book because it is a year long process and I’d like to move on to deeper literature, this is a good novelty paperback. To be honest this didn’t keep my attention all that long because it is essentially a day-to-day calendar disguised as a book. There are great stories ... Meh...

Illegals

Illegals

On 10/19 Jared Young wrote: Do not judge this book by its cover; please! It may have an aggressive, edgy cover from the American flag dipped in Mexico’s colors to the barbed wire and Glenn Beck endorsement, but this is a good read. Ankarlo is first and foremost not a racist (and neither am I for the record), he is a reporter ... Illegals

Same Kind of Different As Me

Same Kind of Different As Me

On 8/23 Jared Young wrote: If you are not evaluating your own life after reading this book, then you need to rethink your strategy in life. This book has affected me in a way most books attempt to. “Same Kind of Different as Me” is written in a unique fashion because it is from a first person perspective with alternating points ...

Mystically Wired

On 6/17 Jared Young wrote: I must start with an important disclaimer to this review: I did not finish reading this book because it is not biblically sound and it relies heavily on the author’s “experience(s)” in prayer. With that being said, I was looking forward to reading this book and learning something new or something ... Mystical Bologna

On 6/12 Jared Young wrote: WARNING: This book is too convicting for a Christian. If you do not want your comfortable, church-going life to be jostled or messed with, do not read this book. Again; do not read this book if you intend to keep a predictable, normal Christian life. Now with that being said – this book is amazing. ... WARNING: This book will mess with your life
