The Last Christian by David Gregory

I don’t believe I’ve ever read Christian science fiction before this book. In fact, I don’t think I’ve even heard of Christian scifi before now. But after reading The Last Christian by David Gregory, I’m actually open to other attempts in this genre.
I’m not the typical scifi reader. I don’t read books about dragons or [...]

Jesus Lives by Sarah Young

I recently took a look at a new devotional book, Jesus Lives by Sarah Young. This devotional is written as if Jesus is talking directly to you. The author includes Bible verses that support each devotional and they do fit right in with each theme. I even think she does a good job with [...]

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear by Max Lucado

It is so easy to be fearful these days. The news constantly reports the bad things. Fire, famine, earthquakes, flooding, tsunamis, volcanoes… it’s enough to make you fear walking outside your door. Add the human element of crime: robberies, shootings, terrorists, plane crashes, diseases and it’s a wonder any of us get out of bed. [...]

Beautiful Mess by Diamond Rio

Beautiful Mess is the story of the band Diamond Rio. If you’re familiar with country music, you’ve probably heard of this band. For twenty years they have kept the same core group of musicians. Through ups and downs, they have stuck together in a tough business.
As a fan of the group since their debut single, [...]
