FULLY ALIVE -- A Journey that Will Change Your Life by Ken Davis … Ken Davis takes you through many experiences that happened to him and tell stories from other people that he knows. These experiences are to help the reader to live a full life and be alive in what we do. A quote he makes is “Some people die at 25 but are not buried until they are 75”, this should get you to thinking about how you are living your life, to the fullest or just going through the motions of living. The main thing we need in our lives is Christ and to follow His teachings from God’s word. Ken devotes many chapters to this and how God will help us live a fuller life. He also devotes chapters to his struggle with his weight; he tells how he overcame that problem. In all it is a very interesting book, written with many humorist stories and offers many things that can help us to live a fuller life. Remember what we need is Jesus Christ in our life to make the biggest different.

NEIGHBORS AND WISE MEN

NEIGHBORS AND WISE MENSacred encounters in a Portland Pub and Other Unexpected Places by Tony Kriz ……. This is a book about how we can learn from others, neighbors, people from other countries, religions and just anyone we happen to meet in our daily life. Tony Kriz tells of encounters that he had in his years of being a missionary in Albania. When he first went there he had to deal with their culture. He also had a problem of disbelief in his life. We all can relate to his stories and his struggles, we all have been up against many of the same things. He shows that we may thing we are going to be the teacher, but that sometimes we are the one being taught. The book is 24 chapters, each chapter has about 9 – 12 pages, this makes this book very easy to read.

William Paul Young (The author of The Shack) writes in his forward:

Every human being is a story. This book is simple, because it is story. This book is profound and challenging, because it is story.”

I found Tony’s stories interesting and well written. I also found that I can learn from those I come in contact with.

BOLD AS LOVE

BOLD AS LOVE --What Can Happen When We See People The Way God Does. By Bob Roberts, Jr….I believe the purpose of this book was to teach us to love others even if they don’t believe in Jesus Christ. I agree we need to love all and when I got this book I was expecting it to be more on loving everyone, believers and non-believers. The book starts out with the author explaining a ministry of his church to the Muslims and Jews, in my opinion he talks more about the Muslims than a more anyone else. He has a great ministry in his church for the Muslims and Jews. He has done a lot of work around the world with the Muslims. The book is good for the information he presents and you can use it in ministering to all those who believe and don’t believe in Christ. We need to love all people and see them the way God does.

I received this book free from Handlebar Marketing for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Words To Think About

This was sent to me in a email.  I want to share it with everyone, it makes you think.

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.
My confession:
I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat...
Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.
In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.
In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school... The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.
Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about.. And we said okay..
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.
Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
Are you laughing yet?
Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.
Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
Pass it on if you think it has merit.
If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.
My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,
Ben Stein

THE EFFECT

The Effect, When Science and Spirituality Meet by Linda Hoy…The purpose of the author in this book is to prove spiritual things that happen with science. Linda Hoy states different spiritual happenings and giving some scientific evidence to their proof by discussing different scientist and their theory’s. I was disappointed with the book and found that some of the explanations where quite long. She had some good evidence proving some spiritual things with science and was humorist at times, in all the book was worth a onetime read. If you enjoy science there will be many explanations you should enjoy.

JESUS A Theography

JESUS A Theography by Leonard Sweet & Frank Viola…. Who is Jesus? As a Christian we know who Jesus is, He is the Son of God, our redeemer, our only way to heaven, but do we know who He really is? This book will guide you thru the whole Bible and show you Jesus in every area of the Bible from Genesis to Revelations. He was there at the creation of the world and every step through the Bible you will see Him there. I was not sure what to expect when I started to read this book, but it has helped me to know my Lord and Savior better than before. The authors combine the historical Jesus with biblical theology, constructing one breath-taking account about Jesus. They refer to the Old and New Testaments as the First and Second Testament which, to me, sound better when you can find Jesus throughout whole Bible. This is a great new Jesus biography that is well worth reading.

OUR DAILY BREAD BIBLE

OUR DAILY BREAD Devotional Bible published by Discovery House Publisher, Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. Take the devotional Our Daily Bread of the Radio Bible Class and the NLT translation and join them together for a great combination Bible. 365 of the best devotions and complete NLT Bible all in one book. It can be used by anyone who read thru the Bible in a year or by those who wants to just do a devotional each day. The NLT is a easy to read and understand translation of the Bible. I was asked to select one book to concentrate on, I choose the book of Job because of the troubles he had. The devotions are connected to each reading. Each day reading offers a deeper meaning and prayers in understanding Job. I also checked devotions in other books of the Bible and found that that carries thru in each book. As I was reading the devotions I thought about the help they would be to anyone going thru problems in life or who just needs a boost each day. They give a Biblical and easy to understand answer to help you.

I try to read thru the Bible each year, this is going to be my Bible for 2013 to read each day.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for my review.

Spiritual Battles

Did you ever hear anyone make the statement -- The enemy or Satan did that or caused that.?

I have heard conversations where people will give Satan or demons more credit for things happening in their life then they do God. When we do this we are not centering our mines on God and praising Him. Satan can do no more then what God allows him to do, God allows things to happen, you can know this by reading the book of Job. God uses these things to make us strong and grow in our faith. God has created all things and is in control of all things. The truth is we are in a spiritual warfare but we must keep our minds and hearts centered on Jesus, He has defeated Satan and we have the victory.

Spiritual warfare is over-emphasized by those who blame every sin, problem, and conflict that comes their way on Satan or demons. We are in a spiritual battle at all times and we cannot ignore the spiritual world.

So when things don't seem right in your life praise God and remember you have the victory over the enemy through Jesus Christ.

    No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us

    Romans 8:37 NLT

    In this way, God disarmed the evil rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross of Christ

    Colossians 2:15 NLT

    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

    Romans 8:28 NIV

    yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

    1 Corinthians 8:6 NIV

    always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

    Ephesians 5:20 NIV

    [Test the Spirits] Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

    1 John 4:1 NIV

    Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour.

    1 Peter 5:8 NLT

Keep you eyes upon Jesus and he will see you through.

JESUS HAS WON THE VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Circle Maker

The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears by Mark Batterson …. This book is about a method of praying circle around your problems and dreams and a man named Honi, who the author calls a circle maker, from a time before Christ was born. He says at the being of the book that it will have you praying circles around any situation you are facing. The author gives examples of different people who prayed circle around their situations and results. The author used some examples of people bribing God and turn around and says we can't bribe God. I had a problem this and also with the fact that their wasn't scripture verses to backup this method. Deuteronomy 10:17 NIV

    For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who shows no partiality and accepts no bribes

I believe, Jesus taught us the Lords Prayer in Matthew and also told us to ask and we would receive. The only thing that stands in our way of having prayers answered is our sin that we have not repented of, we need to come to God in prayer with clean heart and He will hear us.

I received a digital review copy of The Circle Maker in Edelweiss by Zondervan.

Exploring the unexplained

EXPLORING THE UNEXPLAINED, A Practical Guide to the Peculiar People, Places, and Things in the Bible by Trent Butler.... The ultimate A to Z resource, that what is printed on the cover, and that is a true statement. This book give you definition for the people, places and things in the Bible. Presented in the format of a dictionary, you get a brief but understandable definition of some of the simple things and difficult things that you want to ask about. It is written in a very easy to understand method and offers with each definition a question of discussion on issue to thing about. I recommend this reference book to anyone who does Bible studies and to keep it nearby when you are reading your Bible. Its not a large book so it easy to carry with your Bible.

Prophetic Blessings

THE POWER OF THE PROPHETIC BLESSING An Astonishing Revelation For A New Generation by John Hagee...John Hagee describes the blessings of the Bible in three sections, Defining the prophetic and priestly blessings, The prophetic blessings and Releasing and receiving the blessings. He go into details as to the meaning of each kind of blessing, each description help you understand the blessings. I found this very helpful in understand how and why the blessings of the Bible are so important in our faith in Jesus Christ. Hagee also tells us that we need to follow scripture and understand the blessing of Jesus on the mount, Hagee explains the eight blessing the Jesus gave us in the gospels.

The one thing I did not like about the book was thru out the book their was highlighted section called Think on This, I don't know if Hagee done this or the publisher, but I found it distracting as I read.

I received this book free from Handlebar Marketing for a review published on my blog.

Very will written, easy to read, and hard to put down. A very powerful book on Biblical prophecy and Cahn explains how we got to this point because of our turning away from God. I recommend you read this book and pry for our country.

APOCALYPTIC TREMORS by C. R. Chapman ---- First I want to say I do not agree with Chapman when the rapture will take place. I believe the church will be taken out of the world before the great tribulation. Chapman state her belief and go on to explain a lot of different points from Revelations but what happens, in my opinion, is that she rambles on and repeats herself which caused me to have trouble following her at times. This is not a book for new Christians because it can be confusing as to the points she is trying to make. If you decide to read this book, keep a open mind and have a understanding to the end times. I have read many books on Revelation and Daniel explain the end times and have found them totally different from this book.

THE VOICE – Old & New Testaments – Step Into the Story of Scripture.....In October of 2011 I wrote a review about The Voice, New testament hear is part of that review-----[The voice is a new translation of the Bible and offers a new way to understand God's Word. Translated by 27 Bible scholars, and contributions by 51 writers ans 36 other contributors. The voice is very easy to read and easy to understand. Your are offered 4 different reading programs and topical index. In the writing you will find italic type words that bring out the nuance of the original. There are notes on cultural, historical, theological thoughts set in a different color of type.]--After I had read the Voice New Testament and wrote the review I anticipated the whole Bible translation of the Voice, finely the Voice whole Bible has come to press. I got a copy as soon as it was available so I could get a better understanding of the Old Testament as I did of the New Testament. With all the translations available today this is, in my opinion, a must have translation for Christians to use in their Bible studies and daily readings.

THE TRUTH ABOUT GRACE by John MacArthur ----- Have you ever asked the following questions? What is grace? Where or from whom does grace come from? Why do I need grace? and other questions concerning grace. John MacArthur give answers to these questions. He explains what we need for salvation, that it is free and not from what we can do. MacArthur explains the different kinds of grace (common and special grace) about the misunderstandings and twisted forms of grace.

One statement I want to quote “Humanity has always had two types of religion available. One is God and is based on His gracious accomplishment. The other is from mankind and is based on the achievements of men and women. One is all sovereign grace and is embraced by faith. The other is all human works and is performed in the flesh. One flow out of a sincere heart, the other from outward hypocrisy.”

This book is a part of THE TRUTH ABOUT SERIES, I recommend all three that are available at this writing and know they will help you in a closer walk with Jesus.

A Quick Overview of the Bible

A Quick Overview of the Bible by Douglas A Jacoby---is a reference book  and outline of the Bible. You are taken through the Old and New Testaments with a history of the cultures of the people and given a meaning for each testament. I found it very informative and think it would be helpful in Bible studies.  Mr. Jacoby starts out by giving a big picture of the Bible, how the whole Bible has the greatest story for all to know, how we should use the bible as a guidebook for our lives. A story of four dimensions, the plot, the meaning of the Bible. In each section on the testament you will find lots background information that will help you understand the Bible as you read it everyday.

If we don't start now and go back to our Christian beliefs started by our founders we are lost and our freedom will be gone.

The Jesus We Missed

THE JESUS WE MISSED – The Surprising Truth About the Humanity of Christ, by Patrick Henry Reardon ---- I found this to be a great book, not sure what to expect when I ordered it. Reardon starts by asking a question to his seminary class, who all had just suffered from a stomach virus, Did Jesus every have a stomach virus? This question made me think and realize that we need to understand that Jesus did in fact suffer as a human, this was the purpose that he took human form. He wanted to experience everything that we humans do. By reading this book you are taken through the different human experiences with Jesus. I have found a new understanding in what Jesus when through

Here a quote from the book that I really like: “Jesus paid the price of man's sins not simply by accepting death but by the actual experience of dying—by tasting death.” This is one of those books that you will enjoy and want to read over again.
