Move into More

Move into More

On 8/8 LarryKozlof wrote: With so many books telling us the more of God is available in finances and houses, boats and cars it is incredibly refreshing to have a man like Choco De Jesus bring us the truth of what more in God looks like. Choco declares that God’s more is better than anyone can imagine, that it does not hinge ... Book Review: Move into More

The Road to Freedom

The Road to Freedom

On 7/11 LarryKozlof wrote: There’s a story behind the reason I picked this book for review. About 6 months ago someone said to me “Every town should have at least one church that runs a celebrate recovery group.” I admit I didn’t know much about the ministry so I jumped at the opportunity to read and review the book ...

Ever Faithful

On 5/22 LarryKozlof wrote: I’ve never been one to enjoy devotional books, I always find them either too in-depth or lacking a strong focus. David Jeremiah has delivered in Ever Faithful, a devotional that sits comfortably in approachable theology and inspirational teaching. This is a one year devotional, which I have obviously ...

On 5/10 LarryKozlof wrote: As much as I love the idea of reading the bible in comic book format, I ordered this for my youngest son. There is no exact version to this bible and it does not contain the entirety of scripture but instead makes great uses of specific stories about heroes of the bible. That being said the appreciation ... Book Review: Bible Force

Friend of Sinners

Friend of Sinners

On 4/19 LarryKozlof wrote: The subtitle of this book “Why Jesus cares more about relationships more than perfection” is like a calling card to those who bring the good news (gospel), and just the news (heartache and dread filled headlines). It cries out: Jesus is for you and would do anything to sit and have dinner with you, ... Book review: Friend of Sinners

NIV, Journal the Word Reference Bible, Hardcover

On 4/3 LarryKozlof wrote: The Journal the Word reference bible in black hardcover is very well designed and includes two items I find very important in having a bible. 1) a useable area to record notes. 2) scripture cross references.

Bearded Gospel Men

Bearded Gospel Men

On 12/12 LarryKozlof wrote: Would it be fair to say the authors believe the beard is a marker of masculinity and perhaps even gospel preparedness?
