Reviews by Dave Brumley
On 2/28 Dave Brumley wrote: This book sets a standard. Do you want to cling to the gospel and believe that Christ is doing what Christ well pleases in this world and work to become a part of that plan? Or do you want to join hands with Jews, Muslims, and all other religions in honoring their religious practices and thoughts about ... Book Review: Brian McLaren's "Finding Our Way Again"
On 2/3 Dave Brumley wrote: The story of Colton’s illness is an incredible one. As a father, I wiped tears from my eyes on more than one occasion as Todd explains the ordeal and pain of almost losing a child to illness. It is a touching story and Todd Burpo’s explanation of how his faith was rocked is excellently presented. ... This Pilgrim Land Review of Heaven is for Real
On 10/11 Dave Brumley wrote: This is not just a history book though. Primarily, this book is full of scripture as translated by the men who penned the King James Bible. Focusing on scriptures and laying out passages that focus on God’s grace, angels, the Christian reward, God’s love, and a long list of other topics central ... Book Review: "The Treasure of God's Word"
On 10/5 Dave Brumley wrote: ...Wright takes the reader of his book through a historical journey describing how and why the problems in the Middle East all go back to Abraham.

Book Review “Seeds of Turmoil” by Bryant Wright
On 9/17 Dave Brumley wrote: This is a smart book that cuts no corners. Jeremiah’s research of current events and past events is thorough and make his position very convincing. Jeremiah cuts no corners and resists what so many supposed prophets of today do by attempting to read the U.S. into Biblical prophecy. Jeremiah points ... Book Review: “What in the World is Going On?” by Dr. David Jeremiah
On 9/10 Dave Brumley wrote: Do you think your Christian life doesn’t make a difference? Do you find your self dwelling in churches that often forget the gospel and leave you wondering if you are “doing enough?” Are you wondering if you are qualified, capable, or even smart enough to do great things for the Lord & His kingdom? ... Book Review: "Outlive Your Life" by Max Lucado
On 9/7 Dave Brumley wrote: While adults, especially adult Christians, should have a firm grip on the idea of providence in God’s world, this would be a good introduction to a child even though it does not explain the story as providence. The illustrations in this book were beautiful and have a homely hand-drawn feel about them. ... Book Review: “The Boy Who Changed the World” by Andy Andrews
On 9/7 Dave Brumley wrote: ndrews takes the scientific law of the butterfly effect and shows how every action we take effects the future. The only thing that makes this book different from the Christian teaching of providence is that it replaces God with the universe. All of that being said, this is a very good motivational ... Book Review: The Butterfly Effect by Andy Andrews
On 8/30 Dave Brumley wrote: Want to be reminded of the great and mighty place that the person of Jesus Christ deserves in our churches, our homes, and our hearts? Then read Jesus Manifesto. No, the title is not the last name of Jesus revealed as a friend of mine joked when seeing me reading this book. The title is the call to ... Book Review: "Jesus Manifesto" by Leonard Sweet & Frank Viola
On 8/3 Dave Brumley wrote: I have personally set this book aside and have used it for devotionals in our house. Having more than one son, there is enough scripture on each topic to pass around the responsibility of looking up and reading the passages aloud with the family. I can think of nothing negative about this book and would ... Book Review: God's Promises for Boys by Jack Countryman & Amy Parker
On 5/6 Dave Brumley wrote: What Do You Do When God Doesn’?t Show Up the Way You Thought He Would? This is the subtitle of Pete Wilson’s newest book Plan B. In a book pointing to the fact that God is in control of everything at the end of the day, Wilson attempts to point Christian believers to the fact that God’s way ... Book Review: “Plan B…” by Pete Wilson
On 5/5 Dave Brumley wrote: “Is it possible that monks and other Judeo-Christian moralists were useful, maybe even essential to the creation of this [the thriving Western] economy? If so, then is it possible that their dismissal from the marketplace has condemned us to our current economic purgatory?” That is the thesis that ... Book Review: "Popes & Bankers..." by Jack Cashill
On 3/9 Dave Brumley wrote: David Murrow, known for his books challenging Christian men, has written a new book providing further encouragement to those men. In The Map: The Way of All Great Men, Murrow divides the narrative of our Savior Jesus Christ found in the gospel of Matthew into three separate sections, each section ... Book Review: "The Map" by David Murrow
On 2/22 Dave Brumley wrote: I just recently finished reading William J. Bennett’s book “A Century Turns, New Hopes, New Fears.” Inside the pages of this boom the reader is afforded a very interesting and largely unbiased look at the past 20 years of American history from the eyes of a man who was intimately involved in that history. ... Book Review: “A Century Turns, New Hopes, New Fears” by William Bennett
On 1/29 Dave Brumley wrote: I have just finished a quick read of a quality book that if you are a Christian man, you should pick up. This book is Living Life in the Zone, A 40-Day Spiritual Game Plan for Men. We all remember Michael Jordan’s great games and when he or the announcers would say he was “in the zone,” ...
