The Assault


THE ASSAULT

Harbingers Cycle Two

By Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt, Alton Gansky

This is the second book of a series written by four different authors. The story is about four people, working as a team to fight evil that is trying to take over the world. The four are from different walks of life, a tattoo artist, a professor, professor’s assistant and ex-football player but they all work very well together. Each section is narrated by a different person of the team and written by a different author, but is done in a way that they all blend together to make one story. This book start in the Vatican, goes to Florida and end in California. The evil they come against is very unbelievable and can be considered sci-fi, houses that turn to liquid, animal and people taken over by a fungus and different evil people under the control of something or someone, trying to take over.

If you enjoy horror or sci-fi you may enjoy this book. I like sci-fi but some of the things in this book are just a little weird. Very little about God is shared in the book, there is only one of the four that is a true believer and shares his beliefs. No profanity or sexual overtones are in the book. Good reading for this type of book, built up suspense and the story holds your interest.

Start with Amen




START WITH AMEN

By Beth Guckenberger

Author Beth Guckenberger shares some of her stories of being on missionary trips and traveling. The stories she shares are her personal experiences that has helped her understand amen and the true meaning. A definition of amen is “so be it” and used at the end of prayer, the author also feels it also needs to be used at the beginning as well. Her thoughts of using amen at the start of prayers as well at the end are shared. She shows that amen is a word of power and shares why she thinks that. She includes scriptures that prove her beliefs about amen. She covers the benefits of amen, the restoration, barriers, first steps, challenges and boldness of amen.

The book is easy to read and understand. She covers a large variety of things that she has experienced. If you like stories about people and travel, I am sure you will enjoy this book. The information about amen can be used in discussion groups.

Red Letter Words



THE RED LETTER WORDS OF JESUS

By Jack Countryman

Most Bibles published today have the words of Jesus printed in red. The red color is used to represent Jesus's blood that was shed for us. In this book Jack Countryman compiles over 100 of those red-letter passages into a book that can be used like a devotional. The red-letter words are words spoken by Jesus and are important in our relationship with Christ. Jack gives an explanation and background facts about each chosen passage. The red-letter words teach us how to live, Jesus's relationship with God and the Holy Spirit. They also reveal His love for us.

As an enhancement, an illustration has been added to each page that shows the red-letter words. In my opinion, this makes them more like a plaque you would want to hang on your wall, the illustration adds to the beautiful words.

The book is very easy to read and understand, a great addition to anyone’s library. I would recommend using this book as a devotional, Bible study help and as a discussion group topic and study.

EveryJob A Parable


EVERY JOB A PARABLE

What Walmart Greeters, Nurses & Astronauts Tell Us About God

By John Van Sloten

Do you think your job is important to God? Does God think your job is important to Him? The answers can be found in this book about jobs and how they serve God. The author has compiled many stories from across the USA about the different occupations and vocations from the people that work every day for a living. Many of these people do not realize how important their job is and how much God is using that job and them for His glory. Stories from the high paying to the job that own pays minimum wages, every job is important to God. The book is written in four parts; What does it mean to image God?, What is a parable, and how is work a parable?, What does God reveal to us about Himself through our work?, and How can we more effectively and consistently image God through our work?.

A very easy reading and a lot of information in this book. The book can be used in discussion groups and other studies. There are sections at the end of each chapter called Lectio Vocatio, that has some discussion questions.

A quote from the back of the book; “John Van Sloten leads an innovative investigation of vocation. It’s a fascinating journey that illuminates how your work is a parable of God—as you work, you are an icon of grace.”
