J.R.R. Tolkien

J.R.R. Tolkien

On 8/4 Daniel Caddell wrote: For several years I've loved Tolkien's writings.  I've read through the Lord of the Rings and really enjoyed reading books about his writing style, and his friendships within the Inklings.  When I got the opportunity to read a biography on the man, of course I jumped at the chance.  However, ... 115 - J.R.R.

George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver

On 7/26 Daniel Caddell wrote: My Thoughts: I have read stories of Carver and heard of his contributions to agriculture especially his work with peanuts. Perry does a wonderful job of portraying Carver's life. However, it is Carver's story of overcoming that warmed my heart the most and served as inspiration. Carver was born into ... 116 - George Washington Carver

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

On 6/7 Daniel Caddell wrote: The CIA element of the story is barely mentioned and doesn't actually seem to have a huge impact on Ian's story. The part regarding the CIA which was the most interested was at the beginning of the novel, where Ian talks about going to father's funeral and tells of the odd behavior of those who he believed ... 109 - Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me

A Conversation with God

A Conversation with God

On 3/1 Daniel Caddell wrote: A Conversation with God was labeled as a Bible Study on the website I requested it from.  I would say that I did enjoy the book, but that seems to be a misrepresentation of the book.  Gansky's book is written in a letter/conversation style format.  He covers the stero-typical topics that ... 091 - A Conversation with God

Curiosities of the Civil War

Curiosities of the Civil War

On 2/16 Daniel Caddell wrote: I'm a big fan of history.  I enjoy historic accounts and learning from the past.  I hate historical fiction.  It has nothing to do with history and probably confuses people more than helps them understand it.  This book was excellent though because it was as sensational as a fiction ... 088 - Curiosities of the Civil War

In Constant Prayer

In Constant Prayer

On 1/16 Daniel Caddell wrote: By now we've reviewed almost the whole Ancient Practices Series.  Here's one of the last remaining ones we haven't gone over yet.  In Constant Prayer by Robert Benson was an excellent read.  He challenges his readers to... get ready for this... pray.  It seems like something so simple, ... 081 - In Constant Prayer

The Sacred Journey

The Sacred Journey

On 12/28 Daniel Caddell wrote: I'm slowly working my way through the Ancient Practices Series from Thomas Nelson and have landed on "The Sacred Journey" this time.  This has been an excellent series thus far, and again I haven't been let down.  Foster writes like a poet with incredible word choices and an excellent topic. ... 078 - The Sacred Journey

Sabbath

Sabbath

On 12/8 Daniel Caddell wrote: I absolutely love the concept of Phyllis Tickle’s new project. She has taken some of the ancient Christian practices and edited a series covering how to out those practices into practice in our lives. Dan Alexander writes this book and I was throughly impressed. I love the concept of Sabbath and ... Sabbath

The Gospel According to Jesus

The Gospel According to Jesus

On 9/22 Daniel Caddell wrote: Chris Seay is a great author. He’s one of my favorite pastors and always offers great insights. His latest book The Gospel According to Jesus is an incredible read. He argues against false gospels that are too often preached from Amiercan pulpits. I would strongly recommend you go check out not only ... The Gospel According to Jesus

Outlive Your Life

On 9/16 Daniel Caddell wrote: I thought the book was an easy read and like all of Lucado’s books I’d have no problem recommending it to someone new to the faith, however if you’re looking for fresh insights this book will probably feel familiar and like an episode of Sportscenter on the second time through. Check it out from ... Outlive Your Life

The Least Among You (DVD)

The Least Among You (DVD)

On 9/13 Daniel Caddell wrote: I can't say I'm a huge fan of Christian movies. This one was just like all the rest - made with the best intentions and the worst equipment/actors. I would recommend buying this movie if you work at a church and need an "appropriate" movie to show at a lock-in. Otherwise I wouldn't bother watching ... The Least Among You

The Falling Away

The Falling Away

On 9/7 Daniel Caddell wrote: I recently received this book to review and I’ll admit, it wasn’t the best book I’ve ever read. To be honest, I found the book a little slow and the characters unrealistic. I was fairly disappointed and expected a better book considering it was published by Thomas Nelson. The author showed some ... The Falling Away

Permission to Speak Freely

Permission to Speak Freely

On 9/7 Daniel Caddell wrote: Rarely do I read a book as fast as I read this one. Anne Jackson’s last book kept my interest so much that I neglected everything else till I finished it, Permission to Speak Freely did the same thing. Much of her story is already familiar, but she includes more to her story as well as new Scriptural ... Permission to Speak Freely
