For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile. This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, “It is through faith that a righteous person has life.”

Do you know people who are close to God, they remain calm and secure no matter what seems to be going on in their life. Want to have a more rewarding spiritual life? Dutch Sheets offers a way to help through information in this book. The book is written in an easy to understand way and has great examples to help in obtaining a closer walk with God. We need to treat God as a Holy God but also as a friend and not as someone, we only ask for what we want or only invite into our lives occasionally. Dutch gives many interesting stories in his book. He wrote his book in short chapters for fast and easy reading and can be used as a devotional. He ends each chapter with a prayer. I am sure you will enjoy this book and may want to read it multiple times.
Treat God as you would a best friend and invite Him to share in your life.

THE ADAM QUEST
Eleven scientists who held on to a strong faith while wrestling with the mystery of human origins
By Tim Stafford
There has been a debate about the origin of the world for many years, this book gives a informed look at Christians working in science. The author covers 11 scientists, each in a separate chapter, that have three different views of the origin of the world and man. Tim covers these three views, young earth, intelligent design and evolutionary creationism. He offers a short summary of these eleven scientist and a look into the beliefs and their scientific work. He lets them speak for themselves on their beliefs and opinions. He writes in an easy to understand way and gives the facts of each. In the last chapter he compares the three different views and offers his own thoughts of each.
Science and faith need to be on one side not opposing sides in the search of the truth. This book shows how we can get science back into the church without the fear of destroying our faith in the Bible.
