Rebuilding help


THE NEHEMIAH CODE

It’s Never Too Late for a New Beginning

By O. S. Hawkins

New beginning and rebuilding are two things that we most likely have attempted to do in our life. Nehemiah had the job of rebuilding the wall and city of Jerusalem. This book is a study of the book of Nehemiah and his method of rebuilding and how the method will work for you as you attempt to start over or repair things in your life. When we try to rebuild that relationship with a friend, our marriage or any other part of life that needs to be rebuilt. The author takes us through the book of Nehemiah and shows us Nehemiah expert method of rebuilding. Rebuilding a wall is different then rebuilding relationships, but the method of doing the work is the same and this is what the author is sharing.

The book is written in six parts; getting started right, building a team spirit, rebuilders let go without letting up, understand “YAC” is what really matters, never cut what they can untie and finish strong. Some of these subjects may sound funny but when you read the answers you will understand what to do for the best results. Each part gives you a method that worked for Nehemiah and will work for you on the most important rebuilds in your life.

The book would make a great Bible study for groups to discuss and help others in their times of need. In the back of the book, in the Appendix, you get the book of Nehemiah, so you have it with you when you are reading this book. The book is a part of a series by O. S. Hawkins, most of those I have reviewed, and would add to anyone’s library.

Simply God


SIMPLY GOD

God’s Messages of Love and Encouragement

By Rich Richards

The book is about different subjects that shows hiw the love of God is simple and not hard to understand. The author writes it with a different person talking, one is himself and the other is God speaking. There are 24 chapters, each on a difference subject. Some of the subjects are; simplicity of God and Jesus, choices, obedience, righteousness to name a few. In the writing of each subject, the author shares Bible verses to help in the understanding. Some of the Bible translations used are the BBE (1965 Bible in Basic English), MKJV (Modern King James Version), which were 2 translation that I was not familiar with but found them to be easy to understand. He uses other translations as well. The truth of the book is that the love of God is ours and it is not as complicated as some try to make it. He shares some poems that are worth reading more than once.

The book has a lot of information and can get your thinking, but keep an open mind as you read, the changing from one person to the other person can be a little detracting. I think the author does a good job of getting his points across and shows the God is what we need, I am sure not everyone will like this style of writing.

Senior Moments with the Bible


SENIOR MOMENTS WITH THE BIBLE

Brief Daily Bible Lessons for Seniors

By Dorman Laird

Dorman Laird has put together a collection of devotions that he had written for his in-laws and put them in this book for us who are in the older generation. A collection of 365 devotions covering many different subjects, like, the power of gospel, the power of the Holy Spirit, God provides, forgiveness and many more. There are devotions for Christmas, stories of the Bible, Christian living and more. These devotions are directed to seniors who may not get to attend church because of health reasons. They are a daily inspiration for anyone to use each day. Comes with a table of contents that will make it easy to look up a special reading for a special need or occasion. The devotional is dated for dates of the calendar but not any days of the week, which make it usable for many years. Each devotion has a Bible verse with a short writing of inspiration.

It is well written and easy to understand and offers help in many areas of life. A great blessing for many.

I think it would make a great gift for those who do not get around as well as they did and for those who want a simple devotion to read each daily that is centered more on their age. It would be great for those in senior homes and could be used as a group.
