I picked up this book from the church giveaway table. It doesn’t look like it’s been read 🙂 I’ve heard the name Bob Goff, but I forgot the context. So I thought I’d give it a try. It’s an inspirational book, though I don’t agree with all his spiritual reflections about God. I don’t like […]

Everyone highly recommended this book. It took me a while to read it. It’s not the kind of book you read to get through it for the information. It’s more of a devotional book to dwell on and grow it in your heart. I was not too impressed with the first couple of chapters, but […]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been reading various books but didn’t finish one to post till now. I found this book very insightful and inspiring, highly recommend this old treasure. I love the style of writing of old books. Books I started and did not finish: Growing Together by Melissa Kruger I […]

I bought this book, by Voddie Baucham Jr. after hearing about it on a podcast, when my older daughter was starting to date. I skimmed it and didn’t think much of it. My daughter has been married for 3 years with a one-year old baby now, and I just read the book thoroughly. I should’ve […]

It took me a long time to read this book, not because it’s not interesting. I was just caught up in reading a lot of blog posts about church things. It seemed more urgent to learn about how to run a church than to learn about the holiness of God…which of course is a case […]

I bought this book a while back after listening to them on a podcast. The practical ways they helped couples work through ordinary struggles made a lot of sense. I finally got around to reading it. I usually give a book to couples getting married. I am now going to give them this book. While […]

This book was recommended by a missionary friend. She said I don’t have to read the chapters in order. Each chapter describes how God is moving among the Muslims in different regions of the world to bring them to Jesus. I only read one chapter, not the whole book. So this does not count as […]

Elisabeth Elliot is one of my heroes. I salvaged this book from the box of church library books. Never throw away an Elisabeth Elliot book, no matter how old the cover looks! Turns out my daughter purchased a new copy! Sigh… There was so much in this book to think about as I read it. […]

When I need a break from reading heavy material, I read a Christian Hero biography series. I can read one in a few hours and fulfill my monthly book read. I have not heard of Ida Scudder. I think I will highlight her in mission sharing with the church children one day. She served as […]

I’ve been wanting to read this book for a long time. Finally borrowed it off of Pastor A’s shelf. JMac wrote the book in response to the issue of people who deny lordship salvation. I didn’t even know that was an issue until recently. I assume everyone knows that when you ask Jesus to be […]

I’ve been wanting to read through this book for a long time. I’ve read bits and pieces of it, now I’ve read it cover to cover. There are many excellent points on how to teach more effectively. The best part though is the Appendix on how to teach this material to other teachers. It includes […]

I borrowed this book from Aaron based on his review. It took a while for me to read through this book. I actually learned a lot, in fact, gained a few life-changing insights. But it was just too heavy to face all my failings of these impossible commands, and having to confess my sins throughout […]

I was attracted to this used book at Goodwill because our church has been focusing on disciple-making. The style of this book is from my generation, printed in 1988. It looks like a book I might’ve read a long time ago, but I don’t think I did. No matter when the book is written, the […]

I got this free book by Bill Gaultiere when I went to his free seminar. I like free. I wasn’t sure if I’d want to read this since I have a stack of books I’m working through (wish I could read faster!) But I’m glad I did. There are better books out there on this […]

I did not technically read this book. I read the beginning third of the book, and skipped to the last 2 pages to find the murderer. I didn’t want to waste time with the details in the middle. I read slow so unless the writing style is one I can follow easily, I read even […]

I read this easy children’s missionary biography to keep up with reading one book a month. (I actually read 2-3 books at one time, switching back and forth when I get bored with one.) I had not heard of Grenfell. He is a contemporary of Hudson Taylor in the early 1900’s. Those were the golden […]

This was a fast read, only 56 pages of content, and another 50+ pages of resources and outlines. I borrowed this book from AL after reading his book review. After reading this book, I am motivated to read the Bible with someone. I’ll pray that God will bring someone to me. I wish I could […]

My favorite fiction author is Agatha Christie. Josephine Tey is not going to take her place, but offers me a source of entertainment since I’ve read everything written by Christie including those under her pen name Mary Westmacott. A murder mystery is all about the ending and resolution. This one is not completely satisfying, the […]

Aaron gave me this book a while back. It’s been on the stack by my bed. Finally finished reading it. This is my August read, one book a month. I really liked the first chapter explaining what true worship means. Then when it got to the details, it was too much detail. The last chapter […]
