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.

James


JAMES: FAITH BECOMES REAL


The book of James is a small book of the New Testament that covers many ways of behavior for the Christian. Carole Arceneaux has taken the book of James and wrote a commentary on the book. She gives a description of each chapter and then shares what she sees in the verses. Writing her commentary in a different way than most, she has laid out the book like a devotional. Starting with a verse or a set of verses and writing a short description of those. She uses other scriptures in her descriptions, adding to the meaning and at the end of each section she asks a question to get you to think about what you have read. She has covered the many subjects of James in detail.

The book is well written and easy to understand and can be uses in discuss groups and in Bible studies. The book can be used as a reference book using the detailed contents at the beginning of the book. The book is short, but the author covers the points that James was telling his readers.

Billy Graham


THROUGH MY FATHER’S EYES

By Franklin Graham with Donna Lee Toney

This is a beautiful, will written book about the life of Billy Graham as told by his son Franklin. The view of Billy by his son is done in a way that you will get an understanding of the man that is known and respected by most people. He was advisor to world leaders and many other people. He spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world for years, opening the door of salvation to millions. In this book Franklin shares some detail about his father’s private life, his thoughts and how his faith in Christ was what Billy wanted to show in the way he lived. The stories are about Billy’s family, his love for them, his belief and what he tried to show everyone that encountered him. Franklin shares how his father’s beliefs and life had a great affect on him and the decision he has made to continue Billy’s work for Christ.

I believe that you will want to read and reread this book to get to know just what kind of a man Billy Graham was. The book will open areas of Billy’s life that a bio would not share or show. I found so much information about Billy Graham that I did not know, and many others may not know but is so important to knowing the man. The book can be used in discussion groups or just for some casual reading.

A quote from Billy: “When you read or hear that Billy Graham is dead, don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive then than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.”

Thanks for asking.


THANKS FOR ASKING

Equipping God’s People with Answers to Life’s Tough Questions

By Mike Larsen

The questions that Mike Larsen answers in this book, are from a list of questions taken from a survey at his church. The questions are questions that you may have asked yourself. These nine questions cover some topics that have been asked in many churches by many people. Some of the questions are: If God is so powerful, why is there suffering, why do bad things happen, what does the Bible say about homosexuality, what does the Bible say about divorce and other questions that are important to believers today. Mike has given answers to these questions using the Bible to answer them.

This book can be used as a reference book for some and can be used for a Bible Study or discussion group. I think the questions and answers are some of the important questions that Christians need to know the answers to and can be used in witnessing to others. Mike uses some stories from his own life to help explain some of the answers he offers. Mike shares many things from his personal life wanting the reading to know where he came from in life. The book is easy to read and understand.
