December 1941

On 3/20 John Ausmus wrote: Though I couldn't spend as much time with Craig Shirley's book as I would have liked, December 1941 is a very interesting, day-by-day summary of all that went on in one of the most important months of all of World War II. Each chapter is an account of one day, and overall it makes for a very interesting ... December 1941: We Will Never Forget

The Final Summit

The Final Summit

On 5/5 John Ausmus wrote: I must confess that I was drawn to this book immediately without really knowing much of what it was about - I hadn't read Andrews' previous book, "The Traveler's Gift," but I thought I would give the book a try anyway. The premise of the book is a fascinating one; seventy-four year old David Ponder is ... Book Review: The Final Summit by Andy Andrews

It seems that all too often those in the Church ... Book Review - The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns

From Peanuts to the Pressbox

On 1/18 John Ausmus wrote: When I got this book, it was an exciting moment.  I love all aspects of sports and the behind the scenes really intrigues me.  Finding out what takes place off the field and during commercials is what makes every game.  I enjoyed the laid-back style and the “come sit here on the porch and lets just visit” ...

Fearless

On 9/8 John Ausmus wrote: When I first picked up the book Fearless, I wasn’t expecting to find much information applicable to me. After all, I reason, I’m a Christian.
