10 Christians Everyone Should Know

10 Christians Everyone Should Know

On 11/8 Cheese1911 wrote: 10 Christians Everyone Should Know: Lives of the Faithful and What They Mean to You is a set of bios I received from Book Sneeze for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. My review does not have to be positive. This compilation of biographies is marginally good at best. They are too abbreviated ... You don't really get to know them

The Voice New Testament: Revised & Updated

The Voice New Testament: Revised & Updated

On 10/27 Cheese1911 wrote: The Voice: Unnecessary but captivating The Voice New Testament was published by Thomas Nelson publishers. The translation is written in a sort of screenplay style. I like that aspect of this Bible translation. It helps me visualize what’s taking place in the New Testament stories. I don’t like ... The Voice: Unnecessary but Captivating

Dreams and Visions

On 10/27 Cheese1911 wrote: Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World by Tom Doyle is the best book I’ve read...ever (that's obviously not including the Bible).

On 10/3 Cheese1911 wrote: Grace is Good, Grace is God I must start my review off with a disclaimer: I am generally not a Max Lucado fan. I have nothing against him personally, I just strongly dislike his writing style for the most part. Having said that, I give his book, Grace: More than we Deserve, Greater than we Imagine ...

On 9/27 Cheese1911 wrote: The Rev. Billy Graham is a man whom I respect and admire very much. I appreciate his life and legacy and the example he has lived in front of America and the world.

Doing Virtuous Business

Doing Virtuous Business

On 11/4 Cheese1911 wrote: Doing Virtuous Business is a lost art in today’s society, but in the book by Theodore Roosevelt Malloch, we are freshly challenged and encouraged to put people before personal gain. Malloch’s book is one of the most engaging and on-time books I’ve read in the past several years. He uses common ... Doing Virtuous Business

Free Book

Free Book

On 3/24 Cheese1911 wrote: Brian Tome's Free Book is pretty much stating all the obvious, in my opinion. There is no spectacular revelation between the covers that would warrant reading it. Tome seems to be trying to hard to write a good book that it comes across as superficial. I'm sure Tome has great intentions, and there are ... It's Just Okay

Fearless

Fearless

On 12/7 Cheese1911 wrote: Fearless by Max Lucado is another watered down book that doesn’t go much deeper than the surface. There are a lot of good things said in this book, don’t get me wrong. It most certainly isn’t horrible, but I’m afraid that what people need is a deeper message – one that touches the heart of ... Fearless by Max Lucado

Christianity in Crisis: The 21st Century

On 8/10 Cheese1911 wrote: It's a crisis alright This book addresses some major concerns in Christianity today, especially in the United States. There is an way too much falsehood weaving its way into the North American Church, and Hank Hanegraaff has written this book to expose it, identify it, and rid the Church of it (well, ...

The Noticer

The Noticer

On 8/10 Cheese1911 wrote: This book is mush – that’s the bottom line. If you enjoy collecting clever one-liners about how to succeed in life, The Noticer might be a gold mine. But if you're looking for good writing and a great story, look somewhere else. The Noticer opens with a chapter about Andrews himself (although ... Mush! - Notice what?!

This Is Your Brain On Joy

On 2/5 Cheese1911 wrote: I love This is your brain on joy. This book is both unique and engaging. It’s like a combination of a self-help book and a scientific journal. I like that it didn’t make me feel stupid or helpless, but actually helped me to understand what happens in the brain when I am happy, sad, or feeling ... This is MY brain on joy :-)

The Word of Promise The Gift of Psalms

On 1/17 Cheese1911 wrote: The Gift of Psalms is a wonderful addition to the Word of Promise products. I am personally very excited that Word of Promise has done something from the Old Testament.

For The Tough Times

For The Tough Times

On 1/10 Cheese1911 wrote: Sometimes the mark of a good book is not what is written on the pages. Sometimes the mark of a good book is how what is written on the pages makes you think.
