The Final Summit

The Final Summit

On 4/11 Dan Roark wrote: “The Final Summit,” by Andy Andrews, published by Thomas Nelson, is the sequel to Andrews’ “The Traveler’s Gift.” It is not necessary to have read the previous book to understand “The Final Summit.” Andrews recounts the story in the first chapter. David Ponder recalls his travels through ... The Final Summit Book Review

The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect

On 9/7 Dan Roark wrote: The Butterfly Effect, written by Andy Andrews and published by Thomas Nelson is a short, miniature coffee table type book.

Five Cities That Ruled The World

Five Cities That Ruled The World

On 6/21 Dan Roark wrote: I anticipated receiving Five Cities that Ruled the World, written by Douglas Wilson and published by Thomas Nelson, because the subject was intriguing. I was curious to see how the author would approach the subject. The five cities, quite logically, are Jerusalem, Athens, Rome, London, and New York. ...

The Sweet By and By

The Sweet By and By

On 1/5 Dan Roark wrote: We all have our past that we keep put away, and the characters in The Sweet By and By, written by Sara Evans, with Rachel Hauck, and published by Thomas Nelson, are no different.

Between Wyomings

Between Wyomings

On 10/24 Dan Roark wrote: Between Wyomings, My God and an iPod on the Open Road, written by Ken Mansfield and published by Thomas Nelson, is a very interesting read - to say the least. Particularly if the reader grew up in the sixties and seventies, or is merely interested in the culture (music in particular) of that time in ...

Fearless

Fearless

On 9/9 Dan Roark wrote: Fearless, by Max Lucado, published by Thomas Nelson, is as timely as it’s name suggests. Many types of fear haunt people throughout the world today. Fear of what is coming next, fear of disappointing God, fear of overwhelming challenges, fear of violence, and fear of life’s final moments. Lucado ... Fearless - Book Review

The Noticer

The Noticer

On 4/27 Dan Roark wrote: The Noticer, by Andy Andrews, published by Thomas Nelson and released tomorrow, is an interestingly quick read. Yet I found myself not able to read it in one sitting. The plot was rather predictable. Jones (no Mr., just Jones) is the noticer, a seemingly ageless old man who appears in the life of people ... The Noticer - Book Review

Christianity in Crisis: The 21st Century

On 3/12 Dan Roark wrote: Christianity in Crisis 21st Century, written by Hank Hanegraaff, published by Thomas Nelson, is a book every Christian should have on his or her bookshelf.
