Words of Wisdom Calendar


WORDS OF WISDOM CALENDAR

Love, Truth, Wisdom, Justice, JESUS

By Carole Deffes Kelly

A calendar that can give you a touch of wisdom to start your day. You will get a short writing of helpful information to start your day and along with that a verse from God's Word that will inspire you. The short writing definitely will give a way to start the day with a feeling of encouragement, the verse from God's Word is connected with the writing and adds to that writing. The author has put together a great way to help everyone to have a more productive day with only a few words that can be read in a minute but will stay with you all day. The writings are easy to read and understand. The copy I had to review is an eBook which can be loaded on your phone or tablet for reference throughout the day, the book is available in paperback.

Here is an example;

SEPTEMBER 7

                                                Wisdom in life is to endure what you must and change what you can.

                                                My son be wise, and guide your heart in the right way.

                                                —Proverbs 23:19

The book would make a great gift and addition to your library and could be used at family time discussions.

What God can do with an idiot


WHAT GOD CAN DO WITH AN IDIOT

By Mark Dutton, D.Min.

Two meanings of the word idiot: 1. The word "idiot" comes from the Greek ἰδιώτης, idiōtēs 'a private person, individual', 'a private citizen', 'a common man', 'a person lacking professional skill, layman' 2."idiot" is a derogatory term for a stupid or foolish person.

This book is about people that God has used to get things done. The term idiot may not be the correct name to describe these people but read what the author has to say.  Mark shows how plain people of the Bible, who done dumb things, were used by God and how God loved each one. The stories are about Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, David. Rahab and many others. In chapter 15, Mark gives his testimony about his life and how God changed him. He offers Bible verses to help us understand all that God has done with the people of the Bible and what He can do the same with anyone. The stories have great details about the people and about their background, the details can help you understand the people better than before.

I think the book was well written, easy to understand and worth the time to read. The information that is shared is very good and will be helpful in your walk with Christ. A great book for discussion groups.

Worship Essentials


WORSHIP ESSENTIALS

Growing A Healthy Worship Ministry without Starting a War

By Mike Harland

The author states in his introduction of the book that; “Worship Essentials is an exploration of four necessary values for any church that hopes to have a healthy worship ministry.” These four values are;
1. Tell the Story,  
2. Make True Disciples,
3. Engage the Body
4. Aspire with Purpose.
The author tell how these four values can be used to help improve worship. The main thing that he talks able is the music used in the service and how some churches are moving from the hymnals to modern day Christian music. How using different musical instruments in the service can cause many problems in the congregation. He covers the problem that may come up and how sometimes it can be a war that should not be fought. He shares stories from his ministry and from others in hope that those experiences will help others overcome these problems.

He states in the book, “It’s is time to stop the conflicts around worship that disrupt and distracts the churches. It’s time to call off the fighting over music styles and ministry approaches in music.”
