Coming Clean

Coming Clean

On 1/8 Christine wrote: So I wasn't sure what to think about reading a book discussing alcohol addiction. I don't really have an addictive personality, or maybe I just stay away from things I could become addicted to. (Okay, maybe caffeine, or rather, Dr Pepper, I do love Dr Pepper!) I think Coming Clean is much more than ... More than addiction, about forgiveness

Having read Jefferson Bethke’s first book, Jesus > Religion, and loving it, I was excited to get a chance to read his newest book, It’s Not What You Think: Why Christianity is about so much more than going to heaven when you die. So, the title kinda tells you what ... It's Not What You Think-review

Truly Free

Truly Free

On 10/30 Christine wrote: I wasn't entirely sure what this book was about when it was initially offered to me. The title sounded okay, but again, wasn't totally sure.

Searching for Sunday

Searching for Sunday

On 7/27 Christine wrote: The Church has been a rather finicky topic for so many of us in the last few decades. As children, we grow up with church being required due to our parents making us attend.

God's Story in 66 Verses

On 4/4 Christine wrote: Stan Guthrie took on the task of finding one pivotal verse than encompasses each book of the Bible.  No easy feat and even he says that it was a daunting task. However, as someone who has not finished every book of the Bible, I thought it might be nice to at least have a general idea, summary of ... Review: God's Story in 66 verses
