Devotional


MORNING & EVENING DEVOTIONS

By David Jeremiah

Holy Moments in the Presence of God

A beautiful collection of devotions for morning and evening readings. David Jeremiah, a well-known pastor has written and compiled a collection of inspirational reading for those devotionals times you have set aside. This devotional gives you two readings for each day. Each day has a calendar date, no yearly date, making it useable more than one year and can be started anytime. Pastor Jeremiah give a Bible verse and adds a short story to add to that verse and will help with the meaning. The book is beautifully written in easy to understand words and will add to the day.  The book is done in a beautiful leather look hard cover, well designed and contains over 750 pages. Besides the devotions there are some note pages in the back.

I think this book will add to everyone’s day and will inspire you to spend time in God’s Word every day. If you are looking for a way of adding some time with God each day, this devotional will be a help and is Biblical sound.

Misused Stories

THE MOST MISUSED STORIES IN THE BIBLE
Surprising Ways Popular Bible Stories Are Misunderstood
By Eric J. Bargerhuff
The author take 14 stories from the Bible and shows how sometimes these stories are misinterpreted, he give an interpretation that he feels is the right one. His version is a common-sense interpretation not one that is being used to get a view point across. Eric feels that God has a meaning for the story and offers, what he thinks is the meaning is. He covers stories of David and Goliath, Zacchaeus among others. Areas that the author touch upon are, the context of the story, understanding the meaning, not to read modern day biases into the story, reading into the stories at is not there and other things that cause misunderstanding.
I want to share a quote from the back of the book; “Filled with fascinating historical and spiritual insights, this concise yet thorough book will help you learn how to read and apply all of God’s Word more faithfully.”
I like and think we need books like this to help protect us from some of the false teachers and their confusing methods.

The forgiveness this book deals with is forgiveness of losing a child in a tragedy. This is very hard for anyone to deal with. The author and the writer of the introduction give examples of how different people handle a loss of this type. Some want to get revenge, some never let go of what took place. The author shares what she and her husband went through when their daughter went missing and for seven weeks. When they got the news of their daughter’s body being found, they had to come to grips with the truth that their daughter was not coming home, their hope was gone. She shares how they handled that news and how they worked on going on with life. She offers ways of letting go of the fear, grief, their guilt and blame as well as rage along with many other things. She shares all emotions that she and her husband went through and how they worked on forgiving. In the last chapter, chapter 23, of the book she explains what forgiveness.
The author has traveled to different areas to share her story with others who need comfort from being victimized and need help in dealing with their own tragedies.

Invitation

INVITATION
Harbingers
Cycle One
By Bill Myers, Frank Peretti, Angela Hunt and Alton Cansky
Four author, four stories with the same characters in each. Told from a different character view point sharing the same adventure. This book is packed with suspense and mystery. The stories are adventures that are shared by four different people that are somehow drawn together to work as one. They each have a gift that they cannot explain but work together as one to solve the sci-fi type adventures they are drawn together to solve. They cannot agree on some things but they work together to solve the mystery that is assigned to them. The four are joined by a fifth person, a young boy, on their second adventure and he continues with them as they go on to their next mystery. The stories hold your interest and keep you anticipating what will happen next. The fact that each section is written by a different author and the story line hold through till the end. Each section or story has its own surprises and will keep you looking for more.
I found the book very entertaining and easy to read and follow. I also found it hard to put down because it held my interest and found I wanted to find out what was going to happen next. I liked the fact that some scripture was added and it had a spiritual overtone. I understand that the publisher has plans of continuing this as a series with more books by the same authors.
