A Bug Collection DVD Box Set

A Bug Collection DVD Box Set

On 8/15 Karla Cook wrote: Max Lucado's Hermie and Friends: A Bug Collection DVD is a cute cartoon for preschoolers. The idea is to present and reinforce "life lessons" for little ones, but it seemed to be stronger on the entertainment than it was on the lessons, which is okay, I guess, if that's all you're interested in. And ... A Bug Collection - product review

Nelson's Biblical Cyclopedic Index

Nelson's Biblical Cyclopedic Index

On 2/16 Karla Cook wrote: Our former pastor likes to say, "The Bible is its own best commentary." Once I figured out what he meant, I realized he was right. I like to follow related scriptures in the center column of my Bible, and I often use the abridged commentary in the back. When I recently had a chance to review a copy of ...

The Noticer

On 11/15 Karla Cook wrote: One more review for a Thomas Nelson book.I'm not particularly fond of obviously allegorical stories. Unfortunately, The Noticer by Andy Andrews, falls into that category. Rather than a novel, it is more like a series of short stories. In each chapter the main character runs into a mysterious old man ... The Noticer - review

Kiss

Kiss

On 2/3 Karla Cook wrote: Kiss by Ted Dekker and Erin Healy was not really what I expected. I'm not sure exactly what I did expect, except that I've read a lot of Ted Dekker's books and this was different. It did have just a touch of the fantasy/paranormal feel to it that many of his novels have, but in many ways it was much ... Kiss

The Chronological Study Bible

On 12/11 Karla Cook wrote: Karla's Review: I am so impressed with the NKJV Chronological Study Bible. To start with, it is just beautiful. The pages are full-color with a lovely papyrus-like look, although printed on the thin paper typical of Bibles. And then, it is my personal favorite translation, the New King James.The chronological ... NKJV Chronological Study Bible
