God's Promises for Boys

God's Promises for Boys

On 6/7 Becky Campbell wrote: God's Promises for Boys by Jack Countryman and Amy ParkerThis is a thin little book that packs a pretty big punch. Every 2 pages cover a different "promise" from God about every topic under the sun. Say your son is feeling angry about something...you can look up "God's promises when you are angry" and ...

The Heart Mender

The Heart Mender

On 5/7 Becky Campbell wrote: The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews is a unique book that defies categorization. The author claims the story is true, though names have been changed to protect identities. It reads like a novel, with a bit of Christian teaching on forgiveness tossed in for good measure. Some of the conversations between ... The Heart Mender

Never Let You Go

Never Let You Go

On 4/15 Becky Campbell wrote: I sped through the book Never Let You Go by Erin Healy in about 24 hours. I was a bit unsure about it as I began to read, but it pulled me in quickly and became quite the page turner. Not since This Present Darkness has an author done so well in pointing the imagination toward what unseen spiritual ... Never Let You Go

The Hole in Our Gospel

On 2/14 Becky Campbell wrote: I've been hearing about a book called The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns for some time from many different sources. And though I was interested in it, I also had a feeling it might be a bit uncomfortable to read. In the book, the author lays out a compelling case that describes the Gospel as ...

The King and Dr. Nick

On 1/6 Becky Campbell wrote: The King and Dr. Nick by George Nichopoulos, M.D. and Rose Clayton PhillipsMy first Thomas Nelson book review for the year has me divided. It turns out I am extremely interested in Elvis, but not so much in Dr. Nick, his famous doctor. I guess I am too young to recall any of the hoopla that surrounded ... The King and Dr. Nick

The Tallest of Smalls

The Tallest of Smalls

On 10/29 Becky Campbell wrote: I'm rather disappointed in Max Lucado's recently released children's book The Tallest of Smalls. The main problem, in my opinion, is the wording choices. The lines don't seem to flow easily, some words are over kids' heads, and sometimes sentences are all twisted up to make them fit a rhyme even though ... Not a Favorite

The Search for God and Guinness

The Search for God and Guinness

On 10/5 Becky Campbell wrote: I read an interesting Thomas Nelson book this week. Guinness beer isn't the usual Christian book publishing company topic. In fact, there are many conservative Christians that would have big problems with the main idea presented in this book: God works through not only "specifically religious careers" ...

I Believe Bunny

I Believe Bunny

On 7/5 Becky Campbell wrote: I Believe Bunny by Tish Rabe is a short and sweet rhyming book geared for 3-7 year olds (I would think). Behind the soft, pretty watercolor-like illustrations and gentle-flowing poetry of the words is one of the biggest messages of Christian truth: God answers prayer. That can be one of the trickiest ... I Believe Bunny

I'll Make You An Offer You Can't Refuse

On 4/3 Becky Campbell wrote: You could refuse to read Michael Franzese's book and not miss too much. The former mob boss's book of insider business tips has a few gems, but is overall full of common sense business tips that even I, a stay-at-home mom mostly removed from the business world, know. The small book contrasts a Machiavelli ... An Offer You Could Refuse
