Pujols

Pujols

On 5/7 Combsy wrote: I really like Albert Pujols, I think he is going to be a hall of famer and a legend of the game of baseball. I like that his stands by his principles and convictions. He makes known his faith, and seeks to be above reproach. He even is an amazing family man, a rarity in the game I would submit. However, ... Great Player...ok book.

Tithing

Tithing

On 1/29 Combsy wrote: A wide variety of Christians all discussing the tithe can make for some interesting reading. I found myself challenging my own thoughts of Christianity in some chapters while at the same time confirming some beliefs in others. This book will challenge you. Period. I have had mixed feelings about “The ... Tithing by Douglas Leblanc

On This Day in Christian History

On This Day in Christian History

On 12/6 Combsy wrote: I love history, Christian history is of particular interest to me as well. However, I don't have a ton of time to spend on this pursuit. Between work, family, and ever other thing on...pouring through a few tomes of knowledge just doesn't happen. That is where Robert J. Morgan's book "On this day in ...

Your Money God's Way

Your Money God's Way

On 9/22 Combsy wrote: Okay, if you are tired of financial books that teach you how to get out of debt just in order to get rich and buy stuff...I think this one is for you. The author looks more at the root problems of why so many people are in bad financial shape instead of focusing just on a process or step by step program. ... Your Money God's Way

Wild at Heart (Revised and Expanded)

On 7/28 Combsy wrote: So, I didn't think I would get much out of this book the second time around. The idea of revised and expanded editions amuse me like "live" albums for musicians...just a way to get more money. You know what though...this book held up and kept on giving.Wild at hear has the uncanny ability to get a man ... Book Review: Wild at Heart

The Vertical Self

The Vertical Self

On 4/1 Combsy wrote: I like this book. I like the idea of it. I like the guy who wrote it. Somehow though it falls short. About 3/4 of the way through this book it stops being a manifesto and informational tome of new spiritual awareness and becomes a youth bible study book…which I for one have issues with. I don’t ...

The White Horse King

The White Horse King

On 2/2 Combsy wrote: The Vikings were ravaging the land. The Anglo-Saxon people are disorganized and without a true leader. An unlikely king rises up from the ashes of his homeland to save his people from a pagan enemy. Through strategy and faith this king becomes the only king of Anglo-Saxon decent to ever be named “the ... The White Horse King: The Life of Alfred the Great

The Liturgical Year Hardcover

The Liturgical Year Hardcover

On 11/29 Combsy wrote: This really should have been called "Ode to the Liturgical Year", the first 80-90 pages are flowery language on what makes the Liturgical Year special. For what it is Joan is an excellent writer, but that wasn't what I was looking for in this book. I was wanting a step by step explanation of the the ... Ode to the Liturgical Year

Green

On 11/6 Combsy wrote: Ted Dekker is easily one of my favorite authors. His Red, White, & Black books sucked me in to his universe and for the most part anything he puts out I eagerly purchase and read. Green came up on the Thomas Nelson book review page (brb.thomasnelson.com) and I thought “SWEET FREE TED DEKKER BOOK!”. I ... Green by Ted Dekker

Everyday Greatness

Everyday Greatness

On 9/16 Combsy wrote: So I want to really like this book. The stories in it are great. Some make you laugh and some make you cry. There were many moments in this book in which I was reduced to a blathering mess. However, that is what you expect from reader’s digest. Short easy to digest stories that really hit the spot. ...

Fearless

Fearless

On 9/8 Combsy wrote: Fear. Its something that everyone deals with, for better or worse. Max Lucado aims to give Christians some ammo in the fight. Well can you? I can’t, because I know it will always be there. However, Max doesn’t think you can get rid of fear completely either. Fear is something we will have as long ... Are you Fearless

I'll Make You An Offer You Can't Refuse

On 5/26 Combsy wrote: Overall this book has a lot of good information about how to be successful in business, unfortunately you can find it in a lot of business books. What makes this book worth reading is the stories Michael Franzese has to tell about his life in the mob. I would much rather it had been completely about that ... Good stories, Same information

The Unseen

The Unseen

On 2/22 Combsy wrote: Another book that I have read for the book bloggers program at Thomas Nelson. I admit at first this book felt like an R.L Stine. Goosebumps kind of genre. The writing felt pre-teen to me. However if you can get through the average story for the first 200 pages, the second half of the book ... Book Review: T.L. Hines “The Unseen”
