On 2/2 myndi orr wrote: John MacArthur does a great job shining through moments of Truth for us to nibble on each day. I love that he has broken up each month into themes we need to hear about. He starts with Truth as his theme and each day talks about the Sovereignty of God and what Truth means in the Bible. Each devotion ... Moments to nibble on
On 12/29 myndi orr wrote: Yet again I was given a great book to review. This is a great one for the guys in your life to read.

The authors points about the theme of the church ... Missing the men!

On 7/1 myndi orr wrote: When I reviewed Max On Life by Max Lucado as a part of Booksneeze's great program for reviewing books I was hoping for another gem by Lucado. I was left feeling as if I was reading a column in a small town's newspaper. This book seemed thrown together just for the sake of another book. Basically it is ... over rated

On 2/4 myndi orr wrote: I just finished reading The Beginning Reader's Bible to my 5 year old for the fifth day this week.

On 12/14 myndi orr wrote: Our priorities and perspectives challenge us and make our life meaningful or meaningless. In John MacArthur's book Slave that is exactly what he speaks of.

On 10/10 myndi orr wrote: The Gospel According to Jesus by Chris Seay discussed the faith that is needed today, in this progressive, medoicre faith filled world. Chris talked about what Jesus would say the Gospel is, but it seemed he was more interested in what he had to say as well as many pastors he knows. He used the Bible ... disappointing
On 9/30 myndi orr wrote: I have been reading this devotional, Jesus Calling, to my 5 year old. Each daily devotion in this book starts out with a key verse and then application. I don't like that the words are written as though Jesus is saying them directly to the reader. I have to keep inserting "Jesus" where it says "I". Jesus ... for an older audience
On 9/19 myndi orr wrote: This is one of those books you may read once but then you want to read it again and savour every detail, not missing one word.

On 8/17 myndi orr wrote: There are some books you read and want to read again and there are some books you read and like but probably would not read again and I would say The Edge of the Divine by Sandi Patti is the latter.

On 7/11 myndi orr wrote: I just reviewed a fantastic book about the book of Revelation called Storm Warning by Billy Graham. I was given this book to preview by Thomas Nelson's review program.
