NKJV, Teen Study Bible, Hardcover

NKJV, Teen Study Bible, Hardcover

On 9/1 IONNES wrote: I have two boys, one a teenager and the other nearly there. With that in mind when I had the opportunity to review the NKJV Teen Study Bible I jumped at the chance. I like the NKJV (our current translation to use in family study/worship is the ESV) so having that is already a good start. As far as ... It's ok, not great

Man, Myth, Messiah

Man, Myth, Messiah

On 6/6 IONNES wrote: I was given a copy of the book Man, Myth, Messiah by Rice Broocks to read by the publisher for the purposes of reading it and giving an honest review. This is that honest review. It hasn’t been swayed in any way by the fact that I got the book for free. Now that the business is concluded, on to the ... Man, Myth Messiah, A Review

NKJV Foundation Study Bible

NKJV Foundation Study Bible

On 5/3 IONNES wrote: I received a copy of the NKJV Foundation Study Bible from Thomas Nelson for review through their BookLook for bloggers program. It was free but that hasn’t affected my opinion of it. While the NKJV isn’t my favorite translation I do like it. So that’s a plus. This Bible does come in a KJV version ... A solid study bible

Running for My Life

Running for My Life

On 9/22 IONNES wrote: I’m not sure what it was about the book Running For My Life that did not speak to me. By all accounts it’s an interesting and engaging story. A man from a war torn part of the world escaping what many would assume would be his fate and becoming a world famous athlete, an Olympic champion. There ... Wish I had liked it

The 13th Tribe

The 13th Tribe

On 6/8 IONNES wrote: I recently finished the novel The Tribe by Robert Liparulo. This is the 9th novel I have read by Mr. Liparulo and as such I was excited to get a chance to read another book by an author I had previously enjoyed. Icing on the cake was that Thomas Nelson (through Booksneeze.com) offered the book free ... Watch out, the 13th Tribe might get you!

The Coming Revolution

The Coming Revolution

On 3/5 IONNES wrote: The Coming Revolution, by Richard Lee, has something of an ominous title. Perhaps that was added to by the political tension in the air. So I requested the book from Booksneeze.com. They provided me with a copy free of charge for the purposes of this review. That being said this review is purely ... Are you ready for the Coming Revolution?

The Book of Man

The Book of Man

On 1/3 IONNES wrote: “The Book of Man” by William Bennett is something like the last book I read by him “The American Patriot’s Almanac” (well to say it’s the last book I read is a bit misleading as I go back and read bits from it all the time). It has many different readings by many different authors which ... The Book of Man: A needed Resource

Has God Spoken?

Has God Spoken?

On 10/25 IONNES wrote: In the book Has God Spoken Hank Hanagraaff tries to make the point that the Bible is a reliable, historical document. That it can be trusted as the Word of God. The book itself is 400 pages of arguments and notes to that point. And in many cases Hank does a fine job backing up his positions. There ... Has God Spoken? Yes He has

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door

On 9/27 IONNES wrote: We’ve all heard the story that kids who go off to college, in large numbers, loose their faith. The reason usually given is that they aren’t equipped for the questions that they will face. What’s a parent to do? Well Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler have the answer. It’s in their new (sort ...

The Quotable Rogue

The Quotable Rogue

On 7/6 IONNES wrote: The book “The Quotable Rogue” is a book of quotes from Sarah Palin organized into different categories or topics. Categories include abortion, Obama, the recession, the Tea Party, Tina Fey and everything in between. In large measure the book is exactly what you’d expect it to be. There is a ... It is what it is

The Book that Made Your World

The Book that Made Your World

On 6/3 IONNES wrote: Most people, as they go through life, don't really question why it is they believe as they do. If you asked them they would tell you about the values that they gained from their parents, teachers, leaders they admire, and perhaps even a pastor or priest. But do we ever stop and think about why our society ... A fantastic look at our culture's roots

Take Action Bible, NKJV

Take Action Bible, NKJV

On 4/19 IONNES wrote: First off, just looking at the Bible it is a bit smaller than I had anticipated. That’s not a problem just an observation. It contains 5 different “insert” sections labeled Go, Serve, Give, Heal, Teach that are presented on thicker full color paper. These inserts contain stories about people ... The Take Action Bible

The Final Summit

The Final Summit

On 4/11 IONNES wrote: The historical information presented is very interesting. I had never heard of one of the Travelers in the story and he had made such a huge impact on the 20th century I can’t imagine why I haven’t. Secondly Mr. Andrews is a good writer. I won’t say he’s my favorite by as a novelist he is ... The Final Summit

The Story of the Bible

The Story of the Bible

On 3/15 IONNES wrote: This was an interesting book. I had seen it at a few different stores. It’s about 100 pages of information on the history of the best selling book on the planet. It takes you from the origins of the Hebrew Bible and its differences with the Christian Old Testament (believe it or not there are differences, ... The Story of the Bible

Seeds of Turmoil

Seeds of Turmoil

On 3/2 IONNES wrote: The book is a clear, and insightful, look at the biblical roots of the turmoil that exists in the Middle East. To some that might seem as a strange concept. The last books of the Bible were written centuries ago before even Islam (the predominate religion in the region) existed. Wright makes the case ... Good Seeds

The American Patriot's Almanac

The American Patriot's Almanac

On 11/11 IONNES wrote: I recently received the book “The American Patriot’s Almanac: Daily Readings on America” by William Bennett and John Cribb. My initial impressions upon getting the book were very favorable.  I like the general presentation of the book.  From the cloth cover on the spine to the deckle edges on the pages.  The layout is well ...

The Skin Map

On 10/18 IONNES wrote: The Skin Map was written by Stephen Lawhead.  The book focuses on the accidental adventures of Kit, a young man in modern London.  He comes in contact with his Great Grandfather Cosimo who tells him that there are spots and paths on the Earth that will take you to other worlds, other Earths as it ...

Cast of Characters

On 8/11 IONNES wrote: So I read the book “Cast of Characters: Common People in the Hands of an Uncommon God” by Max Lucado.  The book itself is a collection of personal stories and stories of biblical characters.  He has all of the usual suspects.  Stories include Peter, Matthew, David, etc.  He attempts to weave these together to provide insight ...
