A Shot of Faith (to the Head)

A Shot of Faith (to the Head)

On 1/12 Melanie Carroll wrote: A shot of faith is refreshing, articulate and well worth reading if you've ever had 'that' conversation with an atheist/humanist, you know the one where they ardently point out you are delusional for holding a faith and that you can't prove your faith logically so therefore it can have no basis in fact. ... Good News - you can defend your faith and no you're not mad for holding it!

The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook

The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook

On 4/14 Melanie Carroll wrote: I've got to admit that I was slightly disappointed by this book, I expected a bit more fun and a bit more zombie killing that there really was to it. Oh don't get me wrong there are Zombies and chasing and the whole fiction thing zombie apocalypse theme to it, but it's kind of offset a bit too much by ... Zombie killing is not a Christian pastime - normally

Going Deep

Going Deep

On 2/21 Melanie Carroll wrote: I was excited to get this book as I have recently been having many discussions on the paucity of really deep developed Christians in many churches and congregations these days. That is not to say there aren't really great and committed Christians in the churches, just that they aren't always really spiritually ... Deep but in shallow water

The Grace Effect

The Grace Effect

On 1/31 Melanie Carroll wrote: I think what I most liked about this story was that it was a real story of real people and a real adoption. A story of the journey to become a family, to define family, to grow the differences over and yet to not loose sight of them, a story not of forcing change but growing change, a story of a slow ... An adoption story with a difference

Rumors of God

Rumors of God

On 11/9 Melanie Carroll wrote: Ok, now I admit that when I read subtitles like 'experience the kind of faith you've only heard about' I tend to get a little cynical about the contents - however this time i did rather have to give myself a headslap for that because this book really did try to show how to live a real faith of relationship, ...

Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World (Trade Paper)

Living with Confidence in a Chaotic World (Trade Paper)

On 1/16 Melanie Carroll wrote: I am from the UK and this book was a tad too American for me – the language and the hyperbole of chaos used was a little too strong for me to really get to grips with this book. Yes there is much chaos in this world of change and yes the financial turmoil of the past few years has left a real impact ... Chaos and Calm

Embracing Your Second Calling

Embracing Your Second Calling

On 8/3 Melanie Carroll wrote: I wanted to like this book, journal, study guide, self-help book whatever you want to call it, but unfortunately I didn’t. Perhaps if I had been married or had kids it would have made a difference because perhaps then I would fit the profile the book is aimed at better. Perhaps if I didn’t have a ... Not Very Embracing
