The Principle of the Path

The Principle of the Path

On 3/8 Cynda Felini wrote: The Principle of the Path is a unique self-help book. While one would expect the usual self-help list of ways to get your life on track and as the subtitle says “to get from where you are to where you want to be.” It isn’t. There are no steps and no real process. Instead, Stanley lays out a Biblical ... Book Review: The Principle of the Path by Andy Stanley

The Grace of God

On 10/19 Cynda Felini wrote: The Grace of God by Andy Stanley is by far the most enlightening book that I have read this year. Stanley explains grace in a way that I've never heard before.

The Treasure of God's Word

On 10/2 Cynda Felini wrote: I was looking forward to reviewing this book for Thomas Nelson and was profoundly disappointed. I expected a book with an indepth history of the King James Bible as well as examples of how the language, punctuation, and spelling have changed over the centuries.

The Hole in Our Gospel (Trade Paperback)

On 5/11 Cynda Felini wrote: I passed up the opportunity to review this book once already. I wasn't sure what the "hole" could possibly be in our gospel. That title could have so many meanings. So let me clear it up for you. The hole in our gospel is quite simply the fact that we all too often pass by the beggar at the gate rather ... Book Review: The Hole in our Gospel by Richard Stearns

The Sacred Journey 2

On 4/28 Cynda Felini wrote: Foster warns in the preface of Sacred Journey that we will not agree with everything he writes. He was very correct in that assumption. While I found myself agreeing with certain ideas, others were completely lost on me. Part of that is because I went into this book expecting the idea of a journey ...
