Reviews by Anthony Shuler
On 11/20 Anthony Shuler wrote: Nearing Home by Billy Graham is just another one of his pointless books like all of his other pointless books. It’s filled with useless impractical advice that can’t benefit anyone in the real world. It has boring stories and illustrations sure to put the worst insomniac to sleep. It also contains ... Garbage
On 10/10 Anthony Shuler wrote: This book is just riddled with errors. I won’t even try to deal with them all but will focus on what I think is the biggest problem (which also is the biggest problem in most Christian books, songs and churches) and that is an essential misunderstanding of the message of Jesus Christ in the Gospel. ... Avoid
On 10/9 Anthony Shuler wrote: The Book Of Man was actually quite good. William Bennett overall has produced some very good books (at least the ones I’ve read). This book is in line with his better works. This book, obviously, is geared towards men. It covers topics such as war, work and women. The book has little writing by Bill ... Great
On 9/13 Anthony Shuler wrote: 100 Day Prayer: The Transforming Power Of Actively Waiting On God by John Snyder is pretty run of the mill. I tend to give pretty similar reviews to most modern christian books being released because they are so similar. I'm dying to read a book with something different that isn't heresy. This is not ... Disappionting
On 8/23 Anthony Shuler wrote: Our Last Great Hope by Ronnie Floyd is pretty much just another evangelism book like any other evangelism book. Every once and a while an Evangelism Explosion or Hell’s Best Kept Secret will appear but this is not one of these times. The whole premise of the book os that the great commission given ... Eh
On 8/9 Anthony Shuler wrote: Has God Spoken is typical Hank Hanegraaff. If you listen to the Bible Answer Man you’ll know exactly what to expect. No real curve balls here. Although this is a little more in depth than Hank Hanegraaff usually goes and is therefore one of his better books it still has the same general drawbacks as ... Not bad
On 8/2 Anthony Shuler wrote: This book was really disappointing. The author adopts the very cliche “God is my buddy” position and even more cliche “religion is bad” cliche. He tries to highlight four types of religion and contrast it with his “not religion” religion he calls a relationship. He, as well as so many others, ... Disappionting
On 7/27 Anthony Shuler wrote: Darren Whitehead and Jon Tyson have done a horrific job on this book. This book is a clear example of liberal theology in action. You can tell in the first few pages the book is garbage due to the fact that they tell the story of a “christian” woman who, in order to serve her community, got a job ... What A Nightmare!
On 7/19 Anthony Shuler wrote: Josh McDowell is a good author and one which I have a large selection of books by and have greatly enjoyed most of them. However, every author at times writes books that are totally beneath them. This is a perfect example of that. This book first of all is written for teenagers so it’s not very enjoyable ... Disappionting
On 7/12 Anthony Shuler wrote: The Quotable Rogue (Rouge for reasons I’m not aware of refers to former GOP Vice residential candidate Sarah Palin) Is a pretty basic quote book. It’s taken largel from interviews and Q and As. It’s not a simple one liner book as are some quote books. The average quote in this volume is about a ... Not bad
On 7/3 Anthony Shuler wrote: Why God Won’t Go Away was a great read. It may not be what you expect looking at it. I admit it looked like an average apologetic books to me. That is, atheism is false and this is why and God exists and this is how we know. It was not this at all. Rather, like his earlier book that was released just ... Why God Won’t Go Away
On 6/21 Anthony Shuler wrote: Billy Graham In Quotes by Franklin Graham and Donna Lee Toney is unfortunately a pretty average quote book. It is not really exceptional for it's category. But, I confess, quote books are hardly ever exciting. There are some up sides however. It was very well organized I admit as well as the fact that ... Average
On 6/14 Anthony Shuler wrote: No He Can’t is actually a very typical political book. Political books, unless focused on one specific topic, tend to just give a brief synopsis of the author’s political philosophy applied to the issues. When written about a particular politician or political figure of an opposing philosophy it ... Not bad
On 6/7 Anthony Shuler wrote: Strike It Rich With Pocket Change is a book a read (if you can call it that) mostly out of curiosity. I really have no interest in coin collecting but thought the book may be somewhat interesting. Well, I was wrong. It’s not. Unless your already into coin collecting it’s a really boring book. It ... Not so good.
On 6/1 Anthony Shuler wrote: Be the people by Carol Swain is overall a good book I would say. It addresses our current political climate as well as an issue by issue breakdown from a right wing conservative perspective (though this is not by any means exhaustive as it deals only with the chief areas of concern for the conservative ... Good book
On 5/19 Anthony Shuler wrote: In this quite interesting and short book Theodore Roosevelt Malloch presents and defends the economic system know as capitalism with rational arguments and real life examples in a way that does not make economics seem boring (of course I usually find it thrilling anyways so maybe you can't take my word ... Good book
On 5/7 Anthony Shuler wrote: This new book by John C. Maxwell called Beyond Talent: Become Someone Who Gets Extraordinary Results is on par with many of his other classic such as How To Win With People, 25 Ways To Win With People (Coauthored by Les Parrott), Be A People Person, and many other outstanding books on leadership and ... Another good Maxwell read.
On 4/18 Anthony Shuler wrote: Max On Life is not a normally written book. Rather than being divide topically into various chapter it is instead a groups of letters, under the topics hope, hurt, help, him/her, home, haves/have-nots, an hereafter, that Max Lucado has received throughout the years from his various listeners, readers ... Eh
On 4/18 Anthony Shuler wrote: God’s Promises For The American Patriot by Dr. Richard G. Lee (author of The American Patriot’s Bible and the booklet In God We Still Trust) and Jack Countryman (author of theGod’s Promises series of books of which this volume is one) is a very attractive little volume. Just the look and feel of ... Good book
On 3/22 Anthony Shuler wrote: The fight of our lives is a timely and relevant look into our current battle with Islam in America. William J. Bennet and Seth Leibsohn do a wonderful job of communicating this in this book. They discuss how radical Islam is indeed a threat to this nation and it’s people. They give a great deal of ... Good book
On 3/14 Anthony Shuler wrote: The Story Of The Bible, written by Larry Stone (endorsed by Ravi Zacharias and Darrell Bock) was much better than I expected. The book itself is beautiful. The author has a very to the point and informative style which I like. This book also does a good job of addressing the history of The Bible in the ... Great!
On 2/24 Anthony Shuler wrote: This book seeks to answer many popular questions that the average person has about Christianity. It is done in a rather unusual way though. It is written from the perspective of God primarily but also as others from The Bible. I find this unfortunate. The author does this in an attempt to widen his audience ... Disappionting
