The Band that Played On

The Band that Played On

On 6/14 Eskypades wrote: Any discussion of the sinking of the Titanic will usually include a mention of the heroic band of men who, even though facing certain death, played their instruments to the last, providing some measure of comfort and serenity to their fellow passengers. As a band, their last act lives on in fame, but ... The Band That Played On

Billy Graham

Billy Graham

On 2/8 Eskypades wrote: Growing up in a fundamental, Baptist family, I heard comparatively little about Billy Graham and the little I did hear wasn’t positive. When Thomas Nelson offered David Aikman’s biography of the man for review, I was curious to see who exactly this man was and whether or not he really was the false ...

The Word of Promise New Testament

The Word of Promise New Testament

On 4/14 Eskypades wrote: It seems that lately there are more and more audio Bibles available. When I was growing up, perhaps the best or at least the best-known version was the one read by Alexander Scourby. His deep voice and precise pronunciation in reading the King James Version still resonates in my head. In The Word ... Book Review – The Word of Promise

Where is God?

Where is God?

On 1/15 Eskypades wrote: A family member of mine recently went through a tragic loss and I found myself wondering where the goodness of God was in all this. I remember saying to myself, “That’s just not fair!” It was shortly after this that I had the opportunity to review two books, both on the subject of pain, suffering ... Book Review - Where is God?

The Well-Behaved Child

The Well-Behaved Child

On 11/5 Eskypades wrote: Any parent of a child older than 12 months old knows that children have a mind of their own and many times, that mind tells them to rebel against all social mores known to the civilized world.

The Jesus Book

The Jesus Book

On 9/3 Eskypades wrote: I am very particular about the books I use to teach my children, especially when it comes to things about Jesus and the Bible. With so many fluffy, say-nothing books in the market that oversimplify the life of Jesus, it is a hard task indeed for the discerning parent to find an acceptable book about ...

Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl

Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl

On 7/30 Eskypades wrote: The subtitle to Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl, “Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World,” (received through Thomas Nelson’s Book Review Blogger program) is a very apt description of this book written by N.D. Wilson. Although the analogy of the common fairground ride is the starting point for describing ... Book Review - Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl

This Is Your Brain On Joy

This Is Your Brain On Joy

On 6/26 Eskypades wrote: Everyone wants to be joyful, to be happy. What if there was a way to "rewire" your brain to experience all the joy you could possibly handle? What if you learned doctors could, by taking a picture of your brain, tell you exactly what was wrong and how to fix it? Sounds like something you might find in ...
