Wonders Never Cease

On 4/23 Sarah Katie wrote: This had pontential of becoming like an episode of Touched By An Angel. In other words – cheesy, and extremely so. But Wonders Never Cease doesn’t fall into that category – EVER. It’s a lighthearted read, but has a lot of depth where it counts – unlike the messages the “Angel” Kemp is ...

Never Let You Go

Never Let You Go

On 4/14 Sarah Katie wrote: This is Erin Healy’s first book as a solo author, though she has co-written two books with Ted Dekker. She’s already a pro, she deftly blends suspense, heartbreak and the supernatural into Never Let You Go. This book might seem hard to follow at first, many characters are introduced at once, and ...

The Chronological Guide to the Bible

On 4/7 Sarah Katie wrote: Reading the Bible chronologically can be crazy,  you’ll skipping through a book and then going back and forth between I Kings and II Chronicles.  It’s insane, but it’s great for learning ancient and church history. However, it can be dry, very dry, and I’ve been tempted ... The Chronological Guide to the Bible review

Green

On 10/12 Sarah Katie wrote: Ted Dekker is one of the BEST thriller fiction writers out there. Many of his books have even been turned into films and Manga comic books. Green is the 1st, or the 4th or better yet, number zero in his circle series. It might be a bit confusing on the surface, but i promise, it’s not! It’s the ... Green by Ted Dekker

Fearless

Fearless

On 9/8 Sarah Katie wrote: Max Lucado has written a book that is so appropriate for our times. People are “freaking out” left and right, scared of what might come. It seems like there isn’t a day where the headlines aren’t something straight out of a nightmare! Everyone is afraid of something, whether it is truly rational or totally irrational, ...

The Rivers Run Dry is the 2nd book about this character (Raleigh Harmon) by this author. Though it's not exclusively part of a series, it would have helped me to have read the previous Raleigh ...
