The Blessing

The Blessing

On 8/19 Daniel Pallmann wrote: We do not usually think of “blessing” someone as anything more than an impulsive gesture of goodwill or perhaps when they sneeze. However, John Trent and Gary Smalley lay out in this book many reasons—both practical and spiritual, why we ought to intentionally bless our children. Drawing heavily ...

After all, this book claims to help you “raise a confident woman-to-be, show your daughter what it feels like to be treated with love, respect, and true interest by a man who loves her.” This of course is vital later on when ...

Max On Life

Max On Life

On 6/13 Daniel Pallmann wrote: Max Lucado’s latest book is entitled, “Max on Life: answers and insights to your most important questions.” While I am not a big Lucado fan, I thought this one sounded intriguing.

On This Day in Christian History

On 12/2 Daniel Pallmann wrote: On this day in Christian History by Robert J Morgan is a book with an interesting approach.

Beyond Opinion

On 9/27 Daniel Pallmann wrote: Those familiar with the work of Ravi Zacharias know that he is one of the leading Christian apologists today.  This book is edited by Ravi, but most of the chapters are written by other Christian apologists.  Ravi did write two of the chapters, and we can assume he "okayed" the others.  ...
