Jesus Called – He Wants His Church Back

Jesus Called – He Wants His Church Back

On 9/6 Korey F wrote: This book sports a title that is easy to agree with, but with a title like this stating things are wrong, you might expect a lot of negativity about what a terrible state the church of today is in. But it’s a really solid, positive, uplifting read. Ray writes with a humility and grace. He makes profound, ... A Good Read Whether You Love Your Church or Not

It's Not What You Think

It's Not What You Think

On 3/8 Korey F wrote: This is a worthwhile read. You can learn more about the Bible, as well as God and yourself. Bethke tackles numerous different subjects (as seen in the chapter titles) that Christians have had wrong ideas about. The title of the book is an umberella for him to talk about a wide variety of subjects compliled ... Worth Your Time

On 11/16 Korey F wrote: Dairy of a Jackwagon is a great read if you love sarcastic humour – this book is full of it. You will also likely find this book funnier if you have seen Tim performing. If you can get a visual of Tim telling the joke and what expressions he might be using I think you’ll be more likely to find the ... Great Read for Those with a Sarcastic Sense of Humour

What Keeps You Up at Night?

On 8/27 Korey F wrote: I expected this book to have a fairly narrow purpose, namely addressing things that worry us and how to deal with them. Being fairly young, and having had a fairly non-tumultous life thus far, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s just a good overall read for the believer on how to do life well ...

It’s chuck-full of useful advice for those who not only want to be a better leader, but even just a more effective, more productive, better human being.

On 4/23 Korey F wrote: What makes Donald Miller such a popular author? As evidenced in this book it's numerous things. He's just a plain ol' exceptionally gifted writer. He's a master story teller. He's raw yet graceful with his words. He comes across as an extremely down-to-earth, humble, honest guy. He's real. What he has ... Donald Does Scary Well

On 3/3 Korey F wrote: If you’re familiar with Judah’s preaching, you’ll be able to hear his voice all over this book. He writes like he talks. In this book, as in his preaching, he is extremely accessible and has a gift for sharing wisdom in a very non-academic manner. Will he may seem very simple, I think that part ... Classic Judah Smith

On 2/12 Korey F wrote: If you think reading this book on the Holy Spirit is going to be mostly unhelpful and irrelevant to your Christian life, think again. There is a lot of meat here. This isn't a book of cute ideas and theories, it's the real deal. I was struck by how broad a scope of topics the book covered. I think this ... Fantastic, Practical Book

On 11/12 Korey F wrote: This book has a great, strong, masculine title. After opening the book up, I quickly lost the vibes that this book was going to deliver great stuff. The first thing I'd tell you about this book is that it doesn't read like the typical non fiction book. It's based on conversations between a father and ...

It's interesting, it's to the point, it's practical, it's funny, it's useful, and it's short. While his recomendations may seem really simplistic and not too deep, don't be fooled.

On 3/1 Korey F wrote: In the book Restless, Jennie helps us understand the feeling of restlessness that many of us experience. It is that ache in our souls that longs for more, and we wonder if perhaps God has bigger things for us. Jennie guides us through finding our unique wiring, 'threads', as she calls them. These ...

On 2/4 Korey F wrote: Some quick observations about this book: 1. It's written for the average dude. (By average, I mean a man who probably doesn't read much other than newspapers and magazines.) It's broken into small chunks. There are lots of titles within the chapters. You feel like you're getting things done when you ... Solid Work Tackling a Lot of Topics

The Christian Parenting Handbook

The Christian Parenting Handbook

On 5/21 Korey F wrote: Why is this book receiving glowing reviews? Here, in my opinion, is why: 1. It makes sense. The point that they hammer on over and over and over again is that you're after a change in the child's heart - not mere behavior modification. Not only do they drill this into your head repeatedly, they give ... A Wake Up Call to the Price of Parenting Ignorance

On 11/5 Korey F wrote: What's not to love about this book? It's motivational, it's encouraging, it's funny, and it's not filled with insane ideals that you can't even begin to imagine doing. Ken Davis is human. A real one. He talks to you as a Christian brother. The title, Fully Alive, captures well the heart of Ken's message ... If you don't want to read this book you probably should
