gods at war

On 5/28 Chad Feight wrote: i recently read "Gods at War" by Kyle Idleman and came away thinking it was OK. Feel free to read on for more impressions: Kyle Idleman has gained a bit of a "following" since his book, "Not a Fan" came out. Idleman's style is straight-laced and at times humorous. However, he pulls no punches. Idleman ... Good content, I just have a hard time reading his writing style

Why God Won't Go Away

Why God Won't Go Away

On 8/10 Chad Feight wrote: I recently read "Why God Won't God Away" by Alister McGrath and I have mixed feelings about it. I like the occasional apologetic to be able to help students strengthen their faith, but this one was only OK. McGrath had some good points and fine arguments, but they weren't really the ones that I was hoping ... Nice book, but not full apologetic

It's Not About Me

It's Not About Me

On 7/5 Chad Feight wrote: I recently read "It's Not About Me" by Max Lucado on my Kindle (great father's day present!) and I am somewhat confused. Allow me to explain. I enjoy a good Max Lucado book from time to time. I find his writing style is compelling and his way of explaining scripture, while not usually to deep, is memorable. ... Good thoughts, slightly confused though

Take Action Bible, NKJV

On 6/19 Chad Feight wrote: I recently received a copy of the "Take Action Bible" (NKJV) and I really enjoyed it. There isn't a lot of deep commentary, but there are a lot of great stories about people who actually lived out what the Bible teaches. The "Take Action Bible" is a different take on your typical study Bible. Basically, ... Not deep study, but nice stories

Max On Life

On 6/8 Chad Feight wrote: I recently received a copy of “Max on Life” by Max Lucado from Thomas Nelson publishers and I actually really enjoyed it. I don’t mean to sound surprised, but after reading many of Lucado’s books as soon as they were out, I had begun to grow tired of his style and sometimes his lack of depth. ... Good, NEW stuff from Max Lucado

On 3/16 Chad Feight wrote: I recently received a copy of “Read and Share: The Ultimate DVD Bible – Volume 2″ by Gwen Ellis from Booksneeze.com and I have to say, I have mixed feelings about it. The book itself is nice and colorful and simply tells Bible stories. However, when I put in the DVD to try, it was slow, boring, ... Good book, bad DVD
