Review of Chadash Chronicles Book 1: Fool’s Errand by David G. Johnson

The Training Place of Mankind; God’s Creation Explained For Normal Folk by David Bergsland A Book Review by Michael J. Findley

I have read several books by this author and enjoy both his writing style and the content of his works. But I must admit that I am not part of the target audience; Normal Folk. No one has ever accused me of being "normal." On my android 7" ebook reader, type set to 100%, this …

Book Review: The Narrow Gate: How to Thrive During the Great Falling Away by David Bergsland

David Bergsland neither contacted me nor does he know me. In order to be honest, he reviewed our book Antidisestablishmentarianism, a book as long as 3 or 4 doctoral dissertations. For that I feel a great moral obligation to review not just one, but several of David Bergsland's book. This influence, though considerable, is the …

Review of Pharmacia: Those Magic Arts: Revelation Special Ops, book 2 (Volume 2)

I read the first book in this series and have been looking forward to the second. Yates has some wonderful characters. This story changes points of view several times since the Special Ops team is scattered around -- Babylon, Jerusalem, and locations in Russia. Matt's experiences should drive readers to prayer because his ordeal is …

So, What Is a Book Review Anyway?

The last book review I did brought up some interesting questions about a book review. Book reviews are different from most other forms of writing in several ways. First, whether a book review is printed in a print magazine, newspaper or electronically in a blog or on facebook, the first few lines will be printed …

War And Peace: A Book Review

The Law by Claude Frédéric Bastiat

(originally published in French in 1850) Over 99% of everything ever written is not worth reading. Of those higher quality works which contribute to spiritual growth, more than 99% of those are only worth reading once. A tiny number are worthy of a second or third look. The Law, a tiny book of less than …

This “Blog in a Book” Waters Christian Seedlings!

    Review of Growth Lessons by Naty Matos   Naty Matos says she has been through some tough times, but she doesn't dwell on them in this work. She keeps a sweet, cheerful attitude, a lot like the gardener, while gently and persistently digging around our roots, aerating our soil, fertilizing our ground, and …

Unlike Stephen Crane’s Red Badge of Courage, They Met At Shiloh Gives Us Hope

Review of They Met at Shiloh by Phillip M. Bryant I think I was required to read The Red Badge of Courage in High School. Normally a compliant student, I failed to complete that assignment. I don't really like war stories, particularly graphically realistic and gruesome ones. I did, however, finish reading They Met at …

Review of Karis by R.M. Strong

We all need heroes, and some of us even need to be heroes. The vigilante seeking justice is certainly not a new or original idea, but R.M. Strong has put, for me, a highly desirable twist on it with the story teenaged Tamara Weatherby. I'll talk about the twist shortly. Tamara's family and scores of …
