Fyodor Dostoevsky

Fyodor Dostoevsky

On 1/15 Stephen Archer wrote: Dostoevsky is an incredibly brilliant author. This biography was definitely helpful in eating a quick synopsis of Dostoevsky’s life without drowning the reader is nonessential facts. What I mean is, unless one is doing an in depth research paper on Dostoevsky, a lot of the facts that are read in the ... Fyodor Dostoevsky

Take Action Bible, NKJV

Take Action Bible, NKJV

On 9/24 Stephen Archer wrote: In my opinion this Specialty Bible was a good start, but left the reader wanting more. The only thing added to this Bible were five sections (Go, Serve, Give, Heal, and Teach) to emphasize five characteristics of taking action. These five sections were good, but no offense, I felt like it was not even ... Take Action

The Boy Who Changed the World

The Boy Who Changed the World

On 12/16 Stephen Archer wrote: This book is a great book for kids about the butterfly effect. Andy Andrews wrote another book called “The Butterfly Effect: How Your Life Matters” and this book is just that book for kids. It’s a good book because it really shows kids the value of their life. It also shows the value of one ... "The Boy Who Changed the World" by Andy Andrews

Beyond Opinion

Beyond Opinion

On 12/16 Stephen Archer wrote: This book absolutely blew my mind! Ravi Zacharias could have written this book and done a great job, but by being the editor he allowed people that knew the religion or philosophy best to write about it. For instance, Alister McGrath was an outspoken atheist hoping that Christians would die or fall ... "Beyond Opinion" by Ravi Zacharias

The Right to Lead

The Right to Lead

On 6/16 Stephen Archer wrote: The right to Lead is split into seven sections: Action, Vision, Sacrifice, Risk, Determination, Service, and Integrity. These are the major things it takes to be a good leader. Some of the people mentioned in the book that were good leaders weren’t people that I would have initially thought about. ... Right to Lead

The Chronological Guide to the Bible

The Chronological Guide to the Bible

On 3/8 Stephen Archer wrote: This is a must have for any person that desires to study the Bible beyond personal devotions and doesn't want to purchase the NKJV Chonological Study Bible. While this doesn't have all the commentary the Study Bible has it definitely puts the Chronology of the Bible in order while explaining why they chose that ... Chronological Guide to the Bible

The Vertical Self

The Vertical Self

On 3/1 Stephen Archer wrote: This was a much different book than I am used to reading on this subject.  Most authors I read about change would use a little bit larger words to explain change in a person’s life.  For instance, in the Bible when we see a word like sanctification we know it means change.  I wish Sayers ...

The Selfless Gene

The Selfless Gene

On 2/11 Stephen Archer wrote: I recently read this book and was thoroughly disappointed.  The title and subtitle for this book is “The Selfless Gene:  Living with God and Darwin,” but I think the title should have been “Darwin: Living with God and Dawkins.”  Throughout this book Darwin and most of the times Dawkins is praised for the scientific work ...

Living Life in the Zone

Living Life in the Zone

On 1/6 Stephen Archer wrote: I have to say up front I cheated.  I have been reading a devotional and rather than taking the 40 days that this devotional should be read.  Instead I read it in about a week.  Which means my opinion about a 40 day devotional will be a weeks worth.  To begin with I really ...
