Cure for the Common Life By Max Lucado
A fine reading, Max is an amazing writer and I give him credit. He makes you see the uplifting parts of life and put them into the positive light. Cure for the common life focuses around working around your life and being satisfied with what works for you. Who you are and what makes you happy. He made some valid points and told stories of people he’s met along the way; I enjoy Max’s writings-and look forward to his other writings. I received this copy free from Nelson’s publishing, all opinions stated are my own and I was not required to leave a positive review.
Cure for the Common Life By Max Lucado
The Quotable Rogue The Ideals of Sarah Palin in Her Own Words By Matt Lewis
I read this book, and found it to be quite interesting for a political book. It is definitely worth a read-the author gives a very strong outlook to the powerful speaker; and I give him prompts for catching her image so well. I like how he’s capturing the more important issues; and making Palin speak so strongly about dealing with these issues. I think this was a great book, the writer captured it wonderfully, and for it being political it kept it more based to fact then opinion-which most political books don’t do. I received this book free for an exchange of a review. My review didn’t have to be positive and all opinions stated are my own.
Be the People A Call to Reclaim America’s Faith and Promise By Carol Swain
Society is warped, lead into deception with the leaders who are supposed to lead; we’ve become a society of lies and yearning for power. It covers some powerful topic, ones that should be looked at. Carol has a strong writing presence; and one with a very strong voice. I loved her views-and can honestly not wait until I read something of hers again. I look forward to her next one-and can only hope it’s as strong willed and mind changing as this. I received this book from book sneeze for a review. Everything expressed was my own opinion and I was not required to write a positive review.
A Reluctant Queen The Love Story of Esther By Joan Wolf
I tender romance, told from an old story. I have read both versions of Esther, and I have to say that this one has shed some light. It’s about this young girl Esther, who has caught the attention of King Xerxes – a very powerful man, but despite being powerful he was still lonely…until he met Esther. The book offers a beautiful romance, stilled in with reluctantness. The words flow amazingly and the book outshines the old. I honestly recommend this book if you are into romances, or other culture. The characters are astounding, and the romance and controversy are well displayed. To those who like romances, this would be a great story for you to read. I have received this book in exchange for a review – my words are my own, and do not depict any influence to leave a positive review.
The Seraph Seal a book following close to the book of revelations and the horsemen of the apocalypse that surround it. I found the book informative in understanding more of the Revelations, even if it was fiction-it gives a good explanation. I find the bible and fiction fascinating; something you don’t see too often. I liked the book, and it’s conclusion. It’s a very fast paced story with a lot going on-but not so much that you don’t understand. Go ahead and give it a shot. It’s not for everyone, and I remain neutral but I did enjoy it. You may as well. I got this copy for submitting a review on booksneeze.
How to Write a Book Proposal 4th Edition By Michael Larsen
I didn’t get this book unfortunately, I know it had come-but I never received it in the mail due to packages getting stolen from around here recently. I’m sure it was a good book, and one that I was looking forward to reading-unfortunately I live in a crack head town where these people are less then trustworthy. I will need to make sure I start receiving the books when the mail comes from now on I suppose because this makes the second time that this has happened. I’m sorry I can’t review the book and give it an honest rating that I am sure it deserves; unfortunately people around here like to take things that aren’t there - and for that I apologize.
Lead. Serve. Love. 100 Three-Word Ways to Live Like Jesus By Gregory Lang. The author did a fair job in writing the book; who knew that three small words could mean so much? Half inspiration and half advice it borderlines on something most of us don’t even think about. It challenges us as people to our faith and really takes hold and grasps. It was an easy book to read and one that was not at all boring. The book puts into perspective, do we truly know ourselves (from what I was getting from it) It’s a wonderful book as it brings up the questions and challenging answers to those questions. It encourages us to live how Christ lived, live his word - it’s a great and inspiring book. It takes bible messages and turns them into thought provoking processes, three easy words that help live and aspire just as Christ had.
Take Action Bible, NKJV: Together We Can Change the World by Thomas Nelson is a book that has so many stories from everyday people about helping others less fortunate to just being kind. The pictures were beautifully captured and went well with the stories being told. The scriptures and illustrations really put this book together and could inspire someone to help. It really inspired me, but I have volunteered for a lot of organizations so relating to this book was easy. I enjoy helping others so this book was great for me, and the stories really put things in perspective from another point of view and really shows the reader the power of love and compassion. God’s word is important and is shown strongly throughout the book. With God’s word and ideas on strengthening your bible study and the ideas that coronate inside it all comes together so perfectly. I recommend this book; give it a try, it’s not a bad read and good for ideas as well as strengthening up your relationship. The book has many topics, so there’s no shortage of stories, words, ideas or inspiration.
Johann Sebastian Bach Christian Encounters Series By Rick Marschall is a biography on one of the most influential composers in history Johann Sebastian Bach. Through this book you learn more about him as a composer and his music; two very important things that made him the person he was. From the time he was born and the youngest of five sons Sebastian Bach had the music in his soul, his family stretching back hundreds of years of composers; being from a musical family it wasn’t surprising that it was passed onto him. At a relatively young age he began to learn the violin and harpsichord soon transferring into singing for the church. The biggest influence was his faith which played a huge role in his composing music - he was a loyal Lutheran and followed true to his faith which did show greatly in his music, although a little dramatic at times Sebastian was one of the most greatest composers and one of the most modest ones as little information was given on his life-he just lived it. He died July 28th 1750 from said complications of an eye surgery that went terribly wrong, but it still isn’t for certain if that was the main cause.
