Book Review: How to Study the Bible

Title: How to Study the Bible
Written By: Dwight L. Moody
Genre: Bible Study Helps/Non-fiction
Recommended Ages: Any

Introduction:

This book was amazing! I highlighted probably about 1/4 of it. It was interesting to note how similar the times were back in the late 1800s and now. So much of what D.L Moody said completely describes today.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Review: Fatal Trust

Title: Fatal Trust
Author: Todd M. Johnson
Genre: Suspense – Clean
Recommended Ages: 13 & up

This book was good. I enjoyed it since I like suspense books, but there were many times when I was confused by what I read and I kept expecting the book to say something Christian, but it was completely neutral. Fatal Trust was clean, but not Christian. Since it is published by Bethany House Publishers, I expected it to at least mention Christ in some way.

The characters were well-developed and well-rounded. The dialogue was witty, engaging, and exactly what it needed to be.

If you like suspense, I think you will like this book.

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

Not Abandoned: A Review

Title: Not Abandoned
Written By: MacKenzie Morganthal
Genre: Christian Suspense
Recommended Ages: 13 & up (due to the topic, not the content)

Introduction:

Human trafficking. It’s something that most people don’t talk about, but it happens every day. Maybe you know someone who just disappeared and was never heard from again. This is a reprehensible crime, so why don’t more people talk about it? MacKenzie is trying to change that in whatever way she can. In this case, writing a book about it. Continue reading

Where Dandelions Grow: A Review

Today I am privileged to have a new book on my blog. Not mine, you’ll have to be a little more patient for that, sorry. Hopefully November, but don’t quote me on that. This book is by an author I have seen around here and there, but never really connected with until she emailed me about 1 1/2 months ago. It was fun getting to know her a bit and now I’ve also had the honor to read her new book and review it here. But first, a little about the book.

About the Book

What happens when your world falls apart and your dreams are mocked by those closest to you?

Destiny’s idyllic childhood full of laughter and cousins abruptly ended when her mom uprooted the family to move them across the country with strict instructions to never talk about Swallow Ridge again. Eleven years later Destiny moves back to her hometown, determined to find her cousins… and answers.

Plagued by generations of bitterness and manipulation, Destiny hides her life-long goal – unwilling to let anyone else trample her fragile dreams. But living in the cozy town full of dandelions teaches Destiny there’s more to life than what she’s been taught.

Is it possible Swallow Ridge not only holds the answers Destiny so intensely searches for, but also the hope?
