The Skin Map (audio book)

On 2/4 Susan Seaman wrote: Our son, Nathan, is a fan of Stephen Lawhead's books, so we thought it would be fun to review this audio book as a family. Like other Lawhead books, Skin Map is part history, part fantasy, and part intrigue. Originally set in modern-day Great Britain, it takes off to different places and times. Our ... Skin Map

Ascent from Darkness

Ascent from Darkness

On 11/1 Susan Seaman wrote: This book is the true story of a transformed life. I believe God transforms all believers, but sometimes those changes are a bit more subtle - especially for folks like me who came to know the Lord at a very tender age and live a fairly sheltered life. Sometimes its easy to forget God's transforming ... Ascent from Darkness

Stained Glass Hearts

Stained Glass Hearts

On 10/4 Susan Seaman wrote: The subtitle of the book "Stained Glass Hearts" by Patsy Clairmont is Seeing Life from a Broken Perspective. I expected a book about what it is like to be broken, which has been a subject of discussion in our house since Terry was laid off a few years ago. Instead, the "broken" subtitle of this book ...

Thunder Dog

On 9/1 Susan Seaman wrote: Thunder Dog tells the story of Michael Hingson and his guide dog, Roselle, who both escaped from the north tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001.

The Final Summit

The Final Summit

On 4/21 Susan Seaman wrote: I know it's said that you can't judge a book by its cover, and this proved to be true for me regarding "The Final Summit" by Andy Andrews. In this case, I actually liked the cover design and the reviews on the back which called this a "riveting narrative" and compared the writing to C.S. Lewis. But ... The Final Summit Review

Defiant Joy

Defiant Joy

On 1/17 Susan Seaman wrote: G.K. Chesterton was a famous and very skilled English literary critic. So I find it a little intimidating to critique a biography of a literary critic. Kevin Belmonte's book, "Defiant Joy: The Remarkable Life and Impact of G.K. Chesterton" was about two parts biography to eight parts AP English Literature. ... Defiant Joy

Slave

Slave

On 12/16 Susan Seaman wrote: The subtitle for this book is "The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ." When I think of metaphors to explain who I am as a Christian, I think of the father-child relationship or of how Jesus is my personal friend. I don't normally tend to think of myself as Christ's slave. It turns out that ... Book Review: "Slave" by John MacArthur
