On 9/24 flaming-sword wrote: I can remember when I was in my teen years and on weekdays it was time to get ready for school.

On 8/1 flaming-sword wrote: It is encouraging to see so many books coming out about this topic, or maybe as a young father of three, I just find them all. “Father Hunger” by Douglas Wilson is a fresh look at this topic, using modern research to show how the Bible was right about how the family unit should work from the beginning. This ... Father Hunger: Why God Calls Men to Love and Lead Their Families

On 3/20 flaming-sword wrote: This is the story of Moeshe Rosen and how he first grew up as a Jew, and then how he made the connection of the Hebrew Bible to the Jewish man named Jesus of the New Testament. Things done in secret lead to a profession of faith that Jesus was the Messiah to the Jewish people. Moeshe does the unthinkable. ... Absolutely Fascinating!

On 1/3 flaming-sword wrote: I have been reading “More Lost than Found: Finding a Way Back to Faith” by Jared Herd. My first impression of this book was that it was a bit disjointed, and struggled to come to a point. At the same time the style of the book was more of a reflection on some struggles and some thoughts ... More Lost Than Found - Finding a Way Back to Faith
On 11/7 flaming-sword wrote: I have a few comments about “Why Men Hate Going to Church” by David Murrow. I was not sure what to think when I requested this book.

On 10/20 flaming-sword wrote: I have been reading The Book of Man by William J. Bennett. This book was not what I expected. There was so much in it even to the point of being overwhelming, but it is very obvious that a lot of research has gone into its development. The topic is commendable and timely. I sought ...

On 9/27 flaming-sword wrote: I loved this book! “Our Last Great Hope – Awakening the Great Commission” by Ronnie Floyd, was such a refreshing book in the face of so many books about trying to make the Gospel weak and ambiguous.

On 7/27 flaming-sword wrote: Why God Won’t Go Away was a good book, and took me some time to get through because of how much of a thinker it was. As a Christian, and someone that shares my faith with others I have had some encounters with atheists where they just ridiculed and name-called and the tone that all of their discussions ... Excellent Book! Well thought out reasoning on the topic!
On 6/26 flaming-sword wrote: I have seen many books of late where there is such a weak proclamation of right and wrong, let alone the Gospel. This man’s writings come from decades spent studying the Word of God. The way the book is framed is that Rev. Graham writes from what he reads in Scripture. As I read through it I could ... So Encouraging and an Excellent Reference
