The Final Summit

On 4/12 Barrett Myers wrote: On the surface this book seems to be more of the same from Andy Andrews; many of the messages, illustrations and principles in The Final Summit also appear in Andrews’ earlier works.

Outlive Your Life

On 12/9 Barrett Myers wrote: This journey through the book of Acts is entertaining, relevant and challenging, and is better than other Lucado books I've read.
