Passion

Passion

On 5/14 YouthMinister1204 wrote: Passion was not a book that outlined the organization, planning, funding, and business model for the now extremely-powerful event that has come to be recognized and loved all over the world. However, there were parts of that in the book (and this was interesting because once you find out the amount of ... Passion

Nelson's Annual Preacher's Sourcebook, Volume 3

Nelson's Annual Preacher's Sourcebook, Volume 3

On 3/18 YouthMinister1204 wrote: Nelson's Annual Preacher's Sourcebook is unlike any other book that I have received from Booksneeze. It was interesting to me because I do preach on occasion and teach two different Bible classes at my church and I thought this would be a great resource to have on hand. It is good for what it is, which ... Nelson's Annual Preacher's Sourcebook

Humility

Humility

On 1/7 YouthMinister1204 wrote: The book "Humility" by David J. Bobb is an incredible find.  It is a book that brings to light the attitude that is needed in our world today.  Bobb's comparison of Jesus to Socrates and then on to Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Abigail Adams, and others is fascinating to read and examine. ...

You'll Get Through This

You'll Get Through This

On 11/12 YouthMinister1204 wrote: You'll Get Through This by Max Lucado is another Lucado book cut from the similar cloth as many of his other efforts.  Lucado has firmly entrenched himself in the same vein as a Joel Osteen or even Rick Warren in the idea that they attempt to reach the largest audience with the most generic of messages. ...

Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me

On 9/3 YouthMinister1204 wrote: Jesus, My Father, The CIA, and Me is a truly fascinating book.  It is different from many of the other books I have read from BookSneeze because it is in the memoir vein rather than an exposition of text or a Christian life aid.  I enjoyed the stories in the book and the thoughts the author ...

Intentional Walk

On 6/20 YouthMinister1204 wrote: Intentional Walk has by far been my favorite "inspirational" book that I have read in the past few years.  I am a huge baseball fan, a Braves fan by nature, and I originally was not sure if I would enjoy reading a book written about another team.  However, when I began to read through this ...

Heaven's Lessons

On 5/9 YouthMinister1204 wrote: Heaven's Lessons is a good read from a person who has experienced a lifetime's worth of things. Steven Sjogren has survived death (in a way) and gone on to provide insight into his priority shift.  It took me a long time to get through this book as it seemed to be another repetitive discussion concerning ...

Grace

Grace

On 10/15 YouthMinister1204 wrote: The book "Grace" by Max Lucado does not try to be deceptive or confusing in any regard.  One of the things that has endeared Lucado to his readers and even to his church is his simplicity and directness in his message.  This particular book examines grace in the most simple, direct way in an ...

On 9/13 YouthMinister1204 wrote: 12 Unlikely Heroes by John MacArthur is another book that gives its reader a glimpse into the lives of the characters in the Bible. Each time the book opens the eyes of the modern day reader to the challenges, triumphs, failures, and normalcy of the Bible men and women that we thought we knew. This ... 12 Unlikely Heroes

The Searchers

On 8/28 YouthMinister1204 wrote: The Searchers by Joseph Loconte is an interesting book filled with a new insight on a story that oftentimes gets overlooked by many who read the gospel story. Jesus' conversation with these two men on the road to Emmaus is a story that carries a deep, emotional impact, but we will look past it to things ... The Searchers

1,000 Days

1,000 Days

On 8/6 YouthMinister1204 wrote: The book 1,000 Days is a solid read that outlines the ministry of Jesus and attempts to break his work down into minutes, hours, days, months, and years instead of simply a grouping of stories. The ministry of Jesus is far too great to simply call a story, because his ministry is the only hope any of ... 1000 Days

On 3/7 YouthMinister1204 wrote: The Coming Revolution by Dr. Richard G.

Ascent from Darkness

Ascent from Darkness

On 9/26 YouthMinister1204 wrote: This book is a frightening look inside the mindset of someone who has literally been to hell and back.  Michael Leehan takes apart the very idea that no one has issues with the "demons" of the world.  Satan is the prince of darkness and the ruler of this world and he is constantly on the attack. ...
